Absent Landlords own property in a town, city, country etc in which they are not resident.
The further away landlords reside, the less likely they are able to attend to local issues, promptly or at all.
Unless they engage letting agents, problems are very likely.
Landlords who attempt to manage property from abroad are often criticised for not properly looking after their properties.
Neighbours complain when grass is overgrown and maintenance matters are left unattended.
