FT Adviser article: Can a property investor be sustainable?

Thanks FT Adviser for sharing my thoughts on how property investing can be more sustainable.

Are rent to rent and lease agreements legitimate investment strategies?

They are certainly popular in some parts of the market, but there are pros and cons. Some property gurus and trainers will insist that people starting out on their property investment journey can become financially free very quickly and very easily by using strategies such as rent to rent and lease option agreements.
