Having been at the forefront of news, advice and legal information for landlords since 1999, there are few successful landlords who haven’t heard of LandlordZONE.
In fact, their website is a bit of goldmine for reliable information with a wealth of articles on a broad range of topics.
However, it is their legal information and advice that really makes them stand out and plays its part in attracting a reported 3 MILLION people to the website every single year. That’s pretty impressive and shows how popular this blog is.
What They Offer:
At the time of conducting our LandlordZONE review we found their blog consisted of the following:
- A heavy focus on the latest news affecting landlords
- Various articles offering good, easy-to-follow advice on property investing
- Plenty of articles, tools, and forms covering the legal aspects of being a landlord
- A helpful forum where members exchange tips and advice and answer questions
- An online directory featuring over 9,000 suppliers to the property industry
Actually, we’ve seen very few independent resources that are quite as vast as this for landlords.
Most tend to be tied to a particular product or service, but it doesn’t seem that way with LandlordZONE.
Perhaps the only criticism is that the design and layout of the blog is starting to look a bit dated, probably down to the fact it has been around for so long. However, that shouldn’t take away from the fantastic resource it is that any landlord, old or new, would benefit from.
The articles are obviously the stand out feature, with the news posts a particular interest point. But, don’t forget all the other useful tools and info that’s available. The Podcasts, for instance, can be really informative.
How It Works
Obviously, as a blog there isn’t a great deal to it. You go to the LandlordZONE website and start navigating through the information that you most want to know.
Because of the amount of information available, this can actually be a little more tricky than you might first imagine.
However, a quick click on the magnifying glass on the top right will allow you to search the entire site for posts related to the information you’re seeking.
There is an email list you can sign up for too via the ‘subscribe’ button. This will guarantee you the latest news and tips delivered to your inbox.
How Do They Use PropTech?
The PropTech that LandlordZONE use is subtle in that it’s mostly about delivering the content via an online blog. Very tech but not especially unique to the property industry. However, the tools they offer, alongside their supplier directory help to justify the ‘PropTech’ tag a little more.
As you might imagine, there aren’t that many reviews out there for LandlordZONE given that they are a humble free blog. That means, with no product or service to sell, they don’t really have the buyers who would be around to leave reviews. However, their forum is a thriving hub of landlords that seem to be making the most of the resource the site offers.
