A very nice specced 3 bed semi on West Bromwich Road, Walsall, WS5, marketed by Purple Bricks (0121 721 9601). It doesn’t need anything doing to it from what I can see of it and can be let as is as far as I am concerned. There is gas central heating and double glazing. The bathroom is on the ground floor and does not have a bath, but does have a bidet.

So far 2018 has been hectic or what…??!! Time seems to be running through my hands like water. As a landlord and a property manager my daily workload is varied and that’s what I like about my life (afterall, as the saying goes – ‘variety is the spice of life’). The planned stuff mixed in with the unplanned keeps a working day interesting. However, if you are prone to anxiety attacks and don’t like uncertainty of a day in the life of a property manager, then perhaps you would be best advised to seek out the assistance of an expert…

So, the short answer to the question posed by a friend of mine (who is also a self-managing Walsall landlord) is that landlords don’t need to use the services of a Walsall letting agent. Many Walsall landlords decide to be hands-on and undertake the whole lettings process themselves.

I started investing in Walsall buy-to-let property nineteen years ago in 1999 and I was keen to learn and control the whole process myself. I was wary of entrusting others with what was ultimately my financial future and my thoughts were that no agent could possibly care about my Walsall property as much as me.
