Accidental Landlords!

Accidental Landlords!

Even celebrities are turning to the life of an accidental landlord. The sales market it a tough one at the moment which means selling and buying are taking more time, if happening at all. Sellers are rethinking their property decisions, leading to the rise of the accidental landlord.


Homeowners who want to sell, but have ended up becoming landlords because it is easier and possibley more rewarding to wait for the market to improve before tying up a sale. 


Heather Mill has had the same idea with her Arts and Craft- style home in Robertsbridge, East Sussex which she bought following her divorce in 2007 from Paul McCartney.

Heather’s eight bedroom home, set on 15 acres of woodland is on the market but also available to rent for £7995 per calendar month.
