    Best websites for trades people?

    Hi,

    I was wondering what other websites do you use other than mybuilder or gumtree for locating trade people for fixes to properties?

    any sites which you have found good?

    Checkatrade.com is very good! alternatively use forums like this one or The Property Hub to connect with investors in the relevant area, and get some direct recommendations Smile

    Hi Amrit,

    Property Tribes' partner for this is CheckATrade. 

    As the previous poster suggested, you could also use our "Wanted and Recommendations" category to ask for recommendations for a specific trade in a specific area, and you may get some responses.

    I'd prefer speaking to other Landlords, either in person at NLA or other landlord meetings, or on forums like this or property118.

    The only peverse thing I've found is that when some landlords find a good tradesperson,  they keep it a secret - hidden away like the Crown jewels, lest other landlords get to monopolise them so they''re too busy to do work for the landlord that found them and keeps them a 'secret'.

    Bark are excellent in my area.  I use it as a landlord to source tradespeople if I am overstretched and also as a contractor responding to queries and pricing jobs.  I get around 8 applications for quotes per day.
