According to most things that I read in Guardian Money, I'm one of the evil property-owning elite. As a buy-to-let landlord, I'm automatically lumped in with notoriously bad landlords, living in luxury while my tenants pay extortionate rents to live in slums. Tenants tell of their stories of despair at the hands of people like me, while I'm blamed for, well, pretty much everything.
So I'm here to tell the other side of the tale – what being a landlord is actually like. For starters, many landlords aren't rich.
