Welcome to the July edition of Fish Need Water’s newsletter!
With some of the warmest weather happening this month, many have been focused on keeping cool and getting through the heatwaves. How have you been planning to get through the cost of living crisis, have you thought about ways to maximise your most valuable asset?
Here’s what we’ve got for landlords and sellers to help you make informed decisions:
