Just wanted to pass on that I used one of your “tips” from your book to great effect.
When inspecting a property recently I was fortunate enough to have the existing Tenant in there. As you suggest in your book, I had a good chat to the tennant to extract as much information as I could about the Property, problems, how happy the tennant was with staying, and if they intended to stay for a further lease.
She explained that the roof had a leak and that every 6 months or so the sewerage blocks.
When I contacted the builder for the building inspection I advised him of these issues. He then stated he would pay special attention to them & knew the local roofer and plumber and was going to get them out to give their opinions as well. He even advised me to contact the council as he believed the plumber was there fault.
So just by asking the questions of the tennant I managed to have the building inspected by specialists, get quote on repairs, and negotiate a lower price with the vendor!
Very useful tip Steve.

Ah (says Steve with a wry smile)… someone in the 1% of people who will actually use the information given.
Now imagine how much other useful tips are in the book just waiting for you to road test.
P.S. Thanks for the feedback… it is much appreciated [8D]
