OK, so if you are doing the letting, how are you going to organise maintenance of the properties?
I run a company which as part of it, maintains estates, the biggest issue with letting, is maintenance,
we came into this because we are a construction company, and it is a natural extension of the building and development side of things,
We have gas, electric and every other trade on hand at all times, so we are instant response team, which is why our clients choose us.
A very successful business person once said to me , when I was seeking advice when setting up this company, Why do you need a partner? I was being pressured into a partnership with someone when I was making the big leap, He rightly pointed out, you then have two people to consider rather than one,
It is good to have someone to bounce ideas off, but there are many other options, without having to resort to a partnership.
I'm a member of a local breakfast networking group (a small independent rather than one if the national ones) and find that gives me the best of both worlds. I have a fantastic group to bounce ideas off but the business is all mine.
