Hello! I’m David Lawrenson, author of the UK’s top selling book on property and an expert on buy to let. I’m also a media commentator, blogger and consultant on all landlord, property letting and buy to let issues in the private rented sector.
SERVICES FOR ORGANISATIONS
At LettingFocus we advise corporate clients from a range of sectors.
For financial service companies we help with the underwriting, marketing, product design and training issues around buy to let mortgages, landlord insurance and other landlord facing products.
In the public sector we help housing associations and local authorities with Choice Based Lettings, Local Letting Agency Models and Private Rented Sector Access Schemes. We show them how to understand the private rented sector and procure property from landlords in a cost effective way.
We also work for city investors and property portals. In fact, we help any business which provides products and services in the private rented sector and to private landlords. Please click on Consulting for more information on what we do.
SERVICES FOR PRIVATE LANDLORDS
We also still find time to give personal advice on a consultancy basis to landlords.
So, for “accidental landlords”, more experienced investors and for people just looking to buy property to live in, we can help with our one to one property advice service.
We give information and help on any aspect of property investing, including where to get the best mortgages, what area to buy property in, what type of property to buy, the reality of “Below Market Value” and “No Money Down Deals” and general property letting and management issues.

BUY “SUCCESSFUL PROPERTY LETTING” and OUR OTHER BOOKS
Our property book – “Successful Property Letting – How to Make Money in Buy to Let” – has been the top selling UK property book for 13 years and has sold over 100,000 copies, easily outselling all the “TV Property Celebrities” titles.
The brand new, April 2017 edition, is now available to order. You can buy the book here.
In November 2016, I published two new books. One is for landlords and it focuses entirely and in detail on the business of how to find great tenants. It is called, “Landlords’ Guide to Finding Great Tenants”.
The other book is for tenants and is called, “Tenants’ Guide to Successful Renting” – both books are available in paperback as well as in E Pub and Kindle formats.

IN THE MEDIA
I’m a frequent and outspoken property commentator and speaker on property in the press, on TV and for companies and trade associations, well recognised as a critic of the “black hats” operating in the mainly unregulated buy to let and property investing business.
I have also criticised government policy towards the PRS and the poor lending practices of some mortgage companies in the buy to let sector.
