Property investors wanted for new BBC One show

Are you a reputable landlord? Do you own 10 or more properties?

Boundless Productions - makers of Grand Designs and Escape to the Country - are making a documentary series for BBC One and are looking to feature landlords and property investors at the top of their game.

Boundless would like to show how you grew your property business and what role as a successful landlord you now have in the ever increasing rental market.

As a way of exploring how the rental market is changing, each landlord will spend a week as a tenant.

Can you remember being a renter?  How have things changes since you were last renting? Now tenants are renting for longer, how have their needs and expectations changed? Could seeing things from the other side help improve your business?

Boundless Productions start filming later this month and are looking for a number of landlords to take part. Applications are open to all.

If you would like to find out more email Laura Neal at laura.neal@boundlessproductions.tv

    I would strongly advise all landlords to boycott this programme. It will be a stitch up.

    I was contacted by Boundless Productions and the whole slant of what they wanted was a rich and arrogant landlord going back to find out what it was like to be a tenant. They said such things as "We'd like you to go and experience one of your rental properties, to bring you back down to earth as to the reality of the PRS for tenants".

    When I told them that I had a four bed rental house in High Wycombe that was nicer and valued more than my own home, and wouldn't that make for an interesting programme, they quickly ended the call!

    I am certain that this programme will cast landlords as wealthy people out of touch with reality and being forced to experience their own sub-standard "product". The whole concept is biased against landlords and any landlord appearing on it will be the subject of derision and hatred.

    15 minutes of fame? No thanks!

    So it will be a kind of property remake of the 90s TV programme 'Back to the Floor' then?

    Hello all. Firstly, thank you very much to Property Investor Today for taking the time to speak to us yesterday and helping to spread the word in our search for landlords. I'm sure there will be a lot of questions for anyone interested in taking part in our series. I urge anyone who would like to find out more to drop me an email on the address in this post and I can answer any questions you may have.

    Caroline, we would be more than happy to proceed with an application if you would like, we are encouraging a variety of property portfolios to reflect the diversity in the rental market today. We do however, require landlords with several properties. Our aim is to show how the changing rental market is affecting both landlords and tenants alike.

    The series is a brand new format, so I don’t want to compare it to any previous, unrelated TV programmes.

    Please do get in touch via email if you have any more questions,
    Laura

    Caroline?

    Our properties are all of a high standard and in good order. I would be more than happy to spend time in them, as long as you put our tenants up in comparable hotel rooms.

    What would your "angle" be with regards to the above?
