Yesterday, at the Property Investor Show, we caught up again with investment commentator Graham Rowan, to follow-up our somewhat controversial video called "BTL is dead!" which attracted over 100K views on youtube.Graham was keen to up-date us on his latest views as much has occurred since our last interview in April.Labour plans to sell your BTL to your tenantLabour plans for landlords to pay council tax With this latest video we issue a "political correctness" warning, so, if you are easily offended, then probably best move on.Also, the political views expressed by Graham in this video do not represent the political views of Property Tribes, which is a discussion platform to express views, and is therefore neutral, as a piece of software cannot have a political affiliation.The video is shared (and titled!) to galvanise landlords into engaging with the challenges, and, through that awareness, being able to take positive action and find solutions to them:
Here is a reprise of Graham's brilliant video mini-series:Monday - Taking responsibility for your financial future and how to do thatTuesday - Get educated!Wednesday - Create your "income engine" and then turbo charge it!Thursday - Build your "wealth pyramid" to future-proof your wealth.Friday - Protect your assets within a "wealth fortress".Do you agree with Graham and has it changed how you view BTL?SEE ALSO - Buy to let still viable starting out in 2019?UP NEXT - Is BTL dead or am I just late to the party?DON'T MISS - Building your "wealth pyramid"NOW WATCH:

I don't have enough wealth to be an Elite Investor, but Graham has been a major influence on my decision making, as has Property Tribes. Its always a pleasure to them in combination.
One of the main pennies to drop was that there is a difference between BTL, landlord and property investor. I'm still coming to terms with opportunities outside property, but I certainly give them consideration.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback Gary.I think listening to someone who has different views to you is one of the best ways to learn. So many gurus advise their following not to listen to anyone with an alternative view. I regard that as very bad and disingenuous advice with a clear agenda behind it.I actively seek out those with a contrarian view to me, have a robust debate with them, and then look to revise my own opinions as the result of that interaction.I like to test my own beliefs against the views of others as I believe it vastly mitigates risk to be open-minded and be willing to consider someone else's viewpoint as part of the due diligence mix.This was discussed here:The importance of listening to skeptics
As you know I have had my concerned over BTL for a long time
Some Landlords have been quite hostile against me because of my views. But I stick with them and I have yet to be proved wrong
Rent Control will come regardless of who wins the next election
I haven't seen a Political party yet who supports the BTL sector
Boris spoke about wanting more home ownership at his last Political Rally
It's going to be interesting to see where this sector is in five years !
``Some Landlords have been quite hostile against me because of my views. But I stick with them and I have yet to be proved wrong``
I have proved you wrong DL many times
Your statements are extreme sometimes . Here is another one
``Rent Control will come regardless of who wins the next election``
You simply don`t know . You are guessing .
The parties themselves don`t even know - so you cant possibly know
I enjoy your views if only to give me a chance to counter them with my view

Yes but stretching a point . And that`s not what DL means I suggest
FTT is an appeal system against a single landlord charging excessive rents
Rent control in this case means across the board forced suppression of rents for everyone
The LHA freeze is perhaps a better example for across the board rent control as a concept
This clearly doesn't work though as DHP is used routinely used to top up LHA
It therefore makes the LHA freeze in essence a farce
I cant think of any good reason why we will not see rent control
BTL is heading down the road of More Regulation
The Redress Scheme will come S20 will go and Rent Control will come
Just because the PRS think it's a bad move wont stop it coming
Govt has never really listened to us up till now I can see that changing fast
We are an Evil they have to put up with, but I can see a lot more changes coming our way
It will all cost more and when Rent Control comes, Landlords margins will be tight !
If you look at the bigger picture of BTL you have not proved anything really
I have forecast a lot of the things that are happening now and in the future
I said there would be no change to S24
I said Rent Control will come and Now MPs are talking about it
I said there would be a redress scheme and providers are now starting to get ready to roll it out
I also forecast a slow down in the London and the SE this has happened and it will spread
I also said lending would get tighter and it has
You have proved you can buy a house for 200k on the outer edges of the SE
The only forecast you have made is Property Prices will rise ??? which I agree over a very long period
You have not changed my views on anything But it must interest you because you always reply to my thoughts
So they must have some importance otherwise you would ignore me.
