Leigh Robinson Critique: Legit or Scam?

A Look at Leigh Robinson and his Offering: Can he help you?

Real estate investor Leigh Robinson has made a name for himself in the area of property owner problem solving. His specialty is property management; he is experienced in all aspects of property ownership, dealing with tenants, eviction protocols, etc.

Gonna take a look at him a minute, but first a word about my royal screw up in real estate investing. You can read my story here.

Suffice it to say that real estate investing is often deemed easy or a no brainer move when it comes to you and your finances.

I’m here to say…uh NEGATORY, AND I found a better way, and as much as Robinson has some good info out there, I say, “I’m sticking with digital property management.”

On to the Robinson Review.

Leigh Robinson Bio, Background and Books

Robinson has created proprietary software that specializes in property management and landlording. These software programs are called Landlording on Disk and Pushbutton LandLording. They deal with problems and solutions specific to renters and managing renters.

Pushbutton is a software program that helps to track income, analyze it, and keep documents on file.

Eviction Forms Creator is a software that contains forms required for eviction tenants from California properties.

Owning a property can be difficult when you’re dealing with renters who don’t pay, pay late, don’t take care of your property, don’t hold their end of the bargain related to your agreement, or create an unwanted and often untimely vacancy. Landlording is a very hands-on process when done correctly. Leigh Robinson focuses on these types of issues and created books centered around evictions and what to do with the landlord. Certainly, his information expands far beyond such books as A Handy manual for Scrupulous Landlords and Landladies Who Do Their Own Evictions, Landlording, and What’s a Landlord to Do?

Robinson has updated his landlording book in a new version titled Landlording: A Handy Manual for Scrupulous Landlords and Landladies Who Do It Themselves.

The book covers a wide range of landlording issues and subjects. Among these subjects are:

  • how to find reliable tenants
  • keeping tenant records
  • civil problem-solving
  • maintaining tax records

This book was credited by the Chicago Tribune as one of the best property management books published at that time.

I remember when I first started landlord in having Book specific to my state would’ve been helpful. I never have to a bit because what I found was that the renters that I had simply left without paying. The Eviction Book for California:

A Handy Manual for Scrupulous Landlords and Landladies Who Do Their Own Evictions would have been helpful to me if it has been written for Florida. As a landlord, it is important to know what your rights are before you get into renting out your property. You also want to be familiar with the process of eviction and to know who you need to talk to at the courthouse in order to get the ball rolling. After the eviction is processed, you will also need to know how to handle belongings and deposits. In my particular county, I’m aware of that many say that the landlord laws rule in the landlord’s favor. But you’ll want to check your own local jurisdiction to find out what is best for you. However, a book like Leigh Robinson can be helpful in identifying the points that you will need to cover.

Robinson’s book called What Has a Landlord to Do? Landlording Q & A’s features real-life stories about owner/tenant situations. It gives advice and strategies on how to handle different situations and covers some of the variations that could occur with possible different outcomes.

Good luck to you no matter what you decide.
