Parasite? The Secret Diary of a Landlord by The Secret Landlord

parasite_cover_5-01 Final

Get ready to learn what really happens behind closed doors.

Landlords have become one of the most hated groups in society. Parasites, they’re often called. And there’s a lot of them. The Treasury estimates there are almost 2.6 million landlords in the UK with around 5.45 million rental properties.

But the real life of a professional landlord is very different to what most people think. From burglaries and break-ins to drug raids, police warrants, crazy tenant antics, bailiffs, squatters, lawsuits, wrecked properties, interfering council officers, game-playing freeholders to moments of heartfelt joy and happiness, the life of a landlord is never dull. Especially when the government keeps moving the goalposts.

This explosive front line exposé blows the lid off what it’s really like to be a landlord and the shocking reality of renting out a property. Hovering close to a nervous breakdown and likely suffering PTSD, The Secret Landlord exposes truths rarely shared. Stories that will grip you, move you and smack you in the face.

This is the truth, the other side of the door. 


A fascinating look at how things happen from the other side of a tenancy which had me hooked right from the start
This book is well written and made me understand more the trials of being a landlord, what they have to deal with and how it happens as well as what happens with different tenants
There were a lot of surprises in this book for me including learning more about the rules that favour the tenant and make things harder for the landlord as well as the huge variety of people who live in rented accommodation and some of their stories
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a non fiction read that looks at things from a different perspective and will have you hooked
