Vanessa Warwick

Along with her husband Nick Tadd, Vanessa Warwick is a full-time residential landlord and Co-founder and Community Manager of Property Tribes, one of the UK’s leading landlord forums.

Vanessa and Nick started investing in property in 2004 and founded Property Tribes in 2009 to help educate landlords on their legal obligations, and promote best practice in the private rented sector. They also wanted to learn and grow themselves as landlords and business people and adopted Kevin Kelly’s mantra, “None of us is as smart as all of us”.

Vanessa in particular has immersed herself in the private rented sector and is now regarded as  a leading authority on landlord and property issues.


She consults for such professional bodies as the National Approved Lettings Scheme and SAFEagent, and has also been called upon by the Home Office to give input. She is regularly asked to give commentary in the broadsheets including the Guardian and the Telegraph.

Property Tribes is a major influencer within the private rented sector, bringing clarity to issues through robust and healthy discussions, and as a result attracts high profile and professional contributors. It is free to join and all members receive a bi-weekly property intelligence newsletter to keep them informed of the latest news and important issues.
