….Welcome! 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.

Also, I have written a few, urgent pieces (non-property) about the coming digital prison that global fascists would like to impose on us. This is the most recent.

At LettingFocus we advise corporate and public sector organisations from a range of sectors. Please click on Consulting for more information on what we do.


We give personal advice on a consultancy basis to landlords.

So, whether you are an “accidental landlord”, a more experienced investor or just someone looking to buy a home for you 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 getting 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 advice. All the advice is with me, David Lawrenson on a one-to-one basis, either face to face or online.

My book – “Successful Property Letting – How to Make Money in Buy to Let”  – has been the top selling UK property book for 17 years and has sold  over 110,000 copies, easily outselling all the “TV Property Celebrities” titles. You can buy the latest edition of the book here.

I have published two more books. One is a new book 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 ePub and Kindle formats.

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 critiqued government policy towards the PRS and the poor lending practices of some mortgage companies in the buy to let sector.
