Here are some tips on where you can find inspiration and information in lettings:
1. Subscribe to receive alerts from gov.uk
If you want to receive up-to-date information regarding legislation, the first place to look is on the government website. You can subscribe and receive emails which will help you to remain informed about the latest information that may be relevant to you and property owners.
2. Do your own research using Google and then check with a solicitor
Simple questions in legislation can be answered through a quick Google search. However, if you cannot find an answer to your questions or if you want to check the validity of information you have found online, you can check with a solicitor. Some solicitors may be happy to provide you with free advice as they would like to establish a long-term relationship with you in case you require them in the future. For example, if you must evict a tenant in the future, you are likely to turn to them and therefore they would benefit in the long-term.
3. Create a group chat for agents
You can create a group chat using a messaging service such as WhatsApp to talk to other agents. If you have any questions, you can get advice and support from other agents who have come across a similar situation or who have experience in a particular area.
4. Stay active on social media to get inspired and stay up to date
You can connect with like-minded people in property on various social media platforms such as LinkedIn. You can also join groups and forums in which you can ask, and answer questions related to property.
