How easy is it to become a landlord?

If you are considering becoming a London landlord, the internet is undoubtedly one of your most valuable resources for gathering information, but sometimes it can be misleading. In our experience, this can often be the case when it comes to forums offering advice for landlords. In a number of instances we have seen people state that being the landlord for a property is easy, that it does not take up a lot of your time and that it’s something any property owner could do.

We have looked into one or two cases where people have made this claim. In each case the person offering the advice has done so on the basis that everyone reading it would be in the same position they are. Being a landlord can indeed be relatively easy if you have no other demands made on your time or resources. In other words, if you are in a position where you can dedicate 100% of your time to meeting and delivering the requirements of a landlord, then you no doubt would find it quite straightforward.

However, the majority of property owners looking to get solid financial returns on their investment are not in a position where they can simply drop all other work and commitments to concentrate on maximising income from their property. Most would have expectations of the property working for them instead of it being the other way around.
