Hamilton Fraser’s regular property podcast aims to help landlords navigate a smooth path through the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape of the private rented sector, by providing top tips and advice to help them make constructive and informed choices about their future.
In this month’s podcast Eddie Hooker, CEO of award winning Hamilton Fraser Total Landlord Insurance and Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action and Brand Ambassador at Hamilton Fraser, are joined by a special guest – property market analysist, commentator and co-author of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’, Kate Faulkner.
With bags of expertise in the sector, and an intricate knowledge of what does and doesn’t work for landlords, Kate has made a number of media appearances, including in the Daily Mail, on the BBC, the one show, Radio 5 Live, ITV, and LBC Property Hour, sharing her unique insights.
After the successful release of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’ book, written by Kate and Paul back in 2015, they have now released a new edition for 2019 focused on how landlords can make the best out of the ever changing sector, while also ensuring that they remain compliant.
Eddie, Paul and Kate discuss the launch of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’ book, including their motivations behind releasing a new edition and the process involved, as well as exploring the importance of being a business savvy landlord, why it is vital to understand your tenants and the intricacies of landlord regulation and legislation. In addition, they cover topics ranging from government policy and how buy to let has evolved, to increasing market demands and whether landlords get a bad rap in the industry.
Following on with their new closing question for 2019, Eddie and Paul round up the podcast by asking Kate…
‘If you could make one new property law what would it be?’
