Private landlord

It’s a big responsibility to be a private landlord. You are a private landlord if you have decided not to hire the services of a property manager. Instead, you are going to manage your rental property, whether it is a room or part of your family home, a granny flat in the backyard, an apartment or separate dwelling at a different location.
