Landlord Mortgages offers buy-to-let training day

Specialist buy-to-let broker Landlord Mortgages is offering a property entrepreneurship course for buy-to-let investors.  This seminar, which aims to provide experienced as well as novice property investors with practical expert advice on all aspects of buy-to-let, will take place on Saturday June 26 2004 at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel.  


Ranjan Bhattacharya, a property investor with over 14 years&#39 experience, will host the course which will cover how to research, find and finance property as well as portfolio management.


Lee Grandin, managing director of Landlord Mortgages, says: “Over the last few years, buy-to-let investment has become a much more common part of many people&#39s portfolios.  Unfortunately, the information available on this sector hasn&#39t kept pace with its growth and many of the seminars offered are simply vehicles for companies to sell expensive off-plan property investment opportunities. 


“We are seeking to address this need for practical useful information with our property entrepreneurship course, which we believe will give investors the strategies, tools and techniques they need to make a success of their property investment.”


The course costs £395 + VAT per delegate or £495 + VAT for a couple.  In addition to the information provided on the day, delegates will receive regular invitations to further networking events.


Bhattacharya will also be hosting a series of free talks at the Property Investor Show North at Manchester&#39s G-Mex Centre on June 18-20. 


To book a place or for further information on upcoming courses, investors can visit or phone 0800 917 3324
