YAY! Today we are ten!
About eleven years ago I had this crazy idea of running a subscription service – somewhere landlords and tenants could find out their legal rights and obligations at a modest cost.
I had a good feeling about it from the start, so borrowed an extra chunk off the house and commissioned Gill Bishop (then working for another company) to build it for me.
The Landlord Law site went live on 21 November 2001. It was one of my better ideas.
The site has gone from strength to strength and now the subscriptions form the larger part of my income. But it was by no means certain that this would happen at the start. So thanks to my poor husband (afflicted with an entrepreneurial wife) for agreeing to let me do it, and putting up with it all since then.
Sometimes you just have to do it
You never know in business quite what is going to work and what is not. But it is VERY exciting when it does work. I am still thrilled when anyone signs up to Landlord Law, even after all these years.
Landlord Law has also given me freedom. Freedom to do the work that I enjoy (writing and developing new ideas), freedom to say “no” to work I don’t want to do, and freedom from what many solicitors are finding is the tyranny of traditional practice.
Into the future
As you will have seen (if you read this blog regularly) I have changed the membership types around a bit, and am introducing new content. I am also very excited about my new School for Landlord project which I am hoping to make live in December.
This is going to involve free instruction videos for novice landlords, but I will be doing a separate post about this soon. In the meantime, I have a special offer for loyal blog readers who are not Landlord Law members (yet).
10th Anniversary Offer for blog readers
If you join Landlord Law as an annual +Plus member you can get a refund of £50 by emailing me (after you have joined) saying Landlord Law Blog 10th Anniversary offer.
If you join as a six months +Plus member you will get £15 refunded. Multi user members will have the setup fee (£90) waived. But only if you quote the offer words to me.
This offer will end on Friday 25 November at 10.30 pm.
