  1. I’m a newbie landloard and just let my first BTL. The property is let by a young family and both parents running their own independent businesses. They have been living in the property about 5 weeks now and seem to be looking after the house inside but have not cut the grass once since they moved in. I’ve supplied them with a brand new, good quality electric law mower. Garden is a very attractive space as it was landscaped and new turf was laid before they moved in.

I am wondering if those involved in a RTM scheme are any better off compared with those outside of such a scheme. Thanks
  5. Hi, I'm new to property hub, but not new to the podcast, which I love and listen to avidly :-) I just bought a flat in Liverpool City Centre, which was quickly tenanted. But apparently there's no hot water. I live in Kent and need someone I can call on on an ad hoc basis. Landlord Solutions have been brilliant, but they are very busy, and normally assist letting agents rather than private landlords directly. I'm reluctant to have the property managed by a letting agent, not least because I'm only just covering the mortgage with rent. Can anyone recommend someone who can have a look
