In this episode, we’ll be taking you through a real estate legal class. Today, I have the pleasure of hosting my attorney, Julie Anderson. Julie is the reason why I can go to sleep peacefully without worrying about my real estate investments. Julie and I have worked together for over a decade. Her knowledge of real estate law is vast.
We are living in difficult economic times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Landlords are taking losses since their tenants are unable to pay their rent. According to Julie, this shouldn’t be the case at all. Landlords deserve better than this. In this episode, we’ll be looking at how to protect yourself as a real estate investor.
Julie will educate us on the eviction moratoriums, pitfalls that a rookie investor is likely to fall into and share eight tips that real estate investors can apply in their investments.
