The Property Investor Letting Workshop is an 8-week online course with 32 Lessons and over 12 hours of video presentation. This workshop is uniquely designed to teach property investors how to build and manage a successful property letting business for their buy-to-let property investments.

Together with wealth of information provided, property investors also get a Residential Lease Agreement that is specifically designed for property investors interests.

If you need a Residential Lease Agreement urgently, you can reserve your spot in the course and send us a reply email with your order requesting the lease urgently and we will send you the lease prior to the workshop for your use.
