How To Be A Landlord Without The Headache


It seems like just about everyone reaches a point in their life when they want to be a landlord. From reality TV shows to glamorous stories of how a few stand-out individuals went from working full-time to making hundreds of thousands of dollars off their rental properties, there’s really no wonder why people think being a landlord is so lucrative and enjoyable. After all, at first thought, it seems like owning a bunch of properties and waiting for the rent checks to come in each month would be so carefree and simple.

Not to mention that you could make a lot of money by just making a bank-run every month.

Of course, in reality, life as a landlord is by no means simple.

Landlords have to deal with everything from small hiccups in the plumbing system to electrical problems, house updates, damage caused by tenants, and so much more. In many cases, they also have to provide lawn care for their properties, schedule maintenance check-ins, and pay for all kinds of repairs–most of which is likely caused by tenants who were on their way out. Staying on top of due dates and deadlines is yet another difficulty, and when you begin looking at the long list of responsibilities a landlord is expected to handle, it becomes apparent that it might not be such an incredible option after all.

But, despite all the headache, it remains very lucrative. And, if you get in the right tenants, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. However, even with these things in mind, landlords still have to be sure that the lawn is taken care of, that the house is maintained, that repairs are fixed in a timely manner, and that all issues tenants bring up are looked after. This means taking a lot of phone calls, scheduling a lot of handyman visits, and even fronting money for these things out-of-pocket. Typically, the rent checks are enough to keep landlords inspired to keep going since this hard-work surely pays off at the end of the money, but in-between paychecks, it can be difficult to handle everything.

That’s where a property maintenance company often comes into play. Whether you own one property or many, a property maintenance company can help you make sure that everything is taken care of quickly, easily, and with a smile. Rather than you spending countless hours talking to tenants, scheduling repairs, and meeting with the people you hire, a property maintenance company will take over that role and basically handle all of the headache of being a landlord.

Once you give the number to your tenants, they will from then on call the company to report any issues with the property. The company will then be responsible for handling all needed maintenance and repairs, and then giving you a summary of what’s going on each week. In other words, their job is to relieve your stress and assure you that everything is taken care of.

The end result is that you have more time and energy to put into marketing your properties, worrying about due dates, and cashing checks.

End of the Road for Micheno Fraud–Investors Set to Smile Again

Sadly all that is history as we speak.

According to report from the long awaited NASS public hearing which was attended by the following bodies;

1. The chairman and honourable members of the committee from NASS
2. The IG representative
3. All affected banks reps
4. The co-operative registration body in abuja; etc
5. And ofcourse the honourable petitioners representing all of lĺyou.
6. And a few of Mike’s spies

The police were not able to present Michael and Mbakara and the reason they gave was that EFCC has overtaken the issue from police; so the chairman ordered the police and EFCC to produce michael, mbakara and all the board members and promoters to appear in the next hearing.

As for the banks, the committee was not impressed with the brief they submitted as they didn’t include some important info about micheal accounts wit them, so the honourable members ordered them to fulfil all requirements on the next hearing. Keystone bank first denied having any business with micheno not knowing that the honourable members are very learned ppl, so they fished dem out.

The chairman asked us wat we wanted him to do; if we wanted our capital or with profit; so we said only capital. The NASS ordered the police to make more arrests and bring dem on the nxt hearing.

Finally he asked us to suggest tym for next hearing and one of Mike’s spies said next year ( wen selections are next year) so we rejected it. So NASS chose next week Tuesday 20th November as the next hearing. I want to appreciate Mr Ihama and his very learned legal team who spoke out to the committee quoting all the laws relevant.

Judge Orders White House To Return CNN Journalist’s Press Pass

Published

on

According to the ruling, Acosta will have his access to the White House restored for at least a short period of time.

 

Timothy J. Kelly , a Federal judge, has ruled in favour of CNN ordering the White House to reinstate chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass.

A lawsuit claiming that CNN and Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights are being violated by the suspension of Acosta’s press pass had been filed on November 13, 2018 in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Although Judge Kelly did not give a verdict on the underlying case during his ruling on Friday, he granted CNN’s request for a temporary restraining order.

According to CNN, this result means that Acosta will have his access to the White House restored for at least a short period of time. While explaining his decision, the judge said he believes that CNN and Acosta are likely to prevail in the case overall.

Kelly made his ruling on the basis of CNN and Acosta’s Fifth Amendment claims, noting the White House did not provide Acosta with the due process required to legally revoke his press pass.

He left open the possibility, however, that the White House could seek to revoke it again if it provided that due process, emphasising the “very limited” nature of his ruling, while noting that he was not making a judgment on the First Amendment claims that CNN and Acosta have made.

A statement read: “We are gratified with this result and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days. Our sincere thanks to all who have supported not just CNN, but a free, strong and independent American press.”

EXCLUSIVE: How Shehu Sani’s Senatorial Ticket Was ‘Sold For $2m’ To Oshiomhole Through Farouk Adamu

Published

on

According to the source, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Port Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman, singlehandedly gave the money to Farouk Adamu. He said Adamu collected the cash in Abuja on behalf of Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Details have emerged of how the Kaduna Central Senatorial District ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was sold for $2million to Uba Sani, Political Adviser to Nasir el-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State.

A source privy to the deal spoke exclusively to SaharaReporters in Abuja on Friday.

According to the source, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Port Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman, singlehandedly gave the money to Farouk Adamu. He said Adamu collected the cash in Abuja on behalf of Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He revealed that the sum of N50million was offered to the Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, by Uba Sani, which he turned down. The source also noted that Nabena had issued several press statements that Shehu Sani remained the only candidate cleared for the zone, and Nabena had insisted he would only do what the National Working Committee (NWC) asked him to do, as he had no power to upturn their decision.

Hadiza, however, threatened to do everything possible to stop Shehu Sani from getting the automatic ticket, whether the NWC liked it or not.

SaharaReporters gathered that after the failure of a series of attempts by the proxies to get Nabena’s cooperation, Hadiza decided to channel it through Farouk, who collected the cash.

The source also narrated how the Governor El-Rufai slept in the National Chairman’s office, and threatened to pitch tent with Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), if Shehu Sani’s name was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the APC candidate for Kaduna Central Senatorial District.

Farouk, who headed a presidential committee on the APC primaries, collected the money without the knowledge of other members. Members of the committee include Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu; Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

“He ignored the report of the committee and took charge of making phone calls to senators to inform them who made the list and who did not. Why is it that those who got the tickets have not come out to defend Oshiomhole against the myriad of allegations of bribery levelled against him?” the source queried.

Investigations revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Sani Mustapha, the senator representing Niger South Senatorial District, to return to the party.

Mustapha had announced his resignation from the party on October 22, 2018, stating that his decision to leave the party was due to the injustice done to him by the substitution of his name with that of Bima Mohammed, who was not cleared by the panel.

According to information obtained by SaharaReporters, the president has asked him to go to court to challenge the injustice, and promised that he would get his (president’s) support.

“As I am talking to you now, Senator Sani Mustapha has returned to APC and gone to court to challenge the manipulation of the results of the primaries,” the source revealed.

The backlash that followed the bribery allegations levelled against Oshiomhole compelled his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, to issue a statement on Thursday, in which Oshiomhole threatened to take legal action against further allegations.

However, Nabena has asked Ebegbulem to stop the media propaganda and face the reality on ground, as it had affected the party negatively.

He stated this while reacting to a statement on the Whatsapp group platform of APC Press Corps.

“Simon, please stop all this media propaganda and face the reality on ground; the damages affecting the party,” he wrote.

Some members of the National Working Committee are said to be pleased with the fact that the amount allegedly paid by the candidates to Oshiomhole is in public domain. A member, who preferred not to be named, said many of the committee members were oblivious of those deals, as they were sidelined from the beginning of the entire process.
