On hindsight, what would you do different ?
I thought I would post a different kind of post here and ask about things you should or shouldn't have or wished you had done differently so I'll kick off with a couple of things I cetainly would do differently if I was starting all over again;
1. I would NOT have a single gas central heating system installed in any of my properties ever again. If I was buying now and refurbishing I would install individual electric radiators in each room along with a separate hot water cylinder system - reason ? The vast majority of my call outs are C/H boiler problems, PCB boards, plus the expense of certification every year.
2). Where possible, I would install one master lock/key system in all of my properties; therefore alleviating me of the problem of carrying bunches and bunches of keys around.
3). Home owner guarantors on a large number of tenancies - so that I have a fallback position - it really does work.
4). Issue S21(b) at the outset of tenancy - which I have done for a number of years but didn't in the early years - to my cost.
