Getting your property let is key to being a successful landlord  But when it comes to getting your property let during lockdown, that’s a bit trickier.  So why not try and turn this situation on it’s head and make the most of a bad situation?  We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again... in times like this you need to innovate and adapt to the challenges you face. You need to work smarter and harder.  And, if you do this now and continue to do it when the world goes back to some form of normality, you’ll be in an even stronger position.  Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode  If you’ve got a property that you’re struggling to get let, or you’ve just had a tenant that’s handed in their notice, fear not.  This week on The Property Podcast, The Robs are giving you their tips and tricks on getting your property let, each and every time.  In this episode the guys are going to take a look at what you need to do before, during and after marketing your property.  Keen to find out what the top tips are for getting your property let? Tune in to find out.   In the news  If you’re not a fan of fury friends then you may not like the news story we have for you this week.  ‘MP launches Bill to outlaw pet discrimination by landlords’. The aim behind this Bill is to stop landlords from outright refusing a tenant application who owns a pet. Now they’re not saying you have to allow people with pets, but you will have to consider them like you would anyone else. As you can probably imagine, this hasn’t gone down too well with landlords. In some cases, landlords would charge a higher deposit to a tenant with pets in the event of any damage.  But now you can’t even do that due to the five week deposit cap. Whether or not this Bill will pass, we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, there is a thread on this topic over on the forum so make sure you head over there and give your views on the matter.    Hub Extra  This week, Rob B has got a couple of book recommendations for you.  These books are ideal for anyone who runs a business, is high up in a business or just simply wants to understand business.  They are, Rockefeller Habits and Delivering Happiness.  Both books are very different. Rockefeller Habits will give you an idea on how to run a business and Delivering Happiness will guide you on how you can deliver a great service.    Let’s get social We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future - if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do.
