  1. Hi all, I have heard that once you convert your house to an HMO it will not enjoy as much capital appreciation ( because your potential buyers are only HMO investors) My question is as follows : When you come to sell the house can you cancel the HMO licence and sell as a normal house and thereby widening the pool of potential buyers?

  2. Hi everyone , I have recently launched a property sourcing company based in China and focussing on the UK buy to let residential investment market . This thursday I am meeting with a developer to look at a few potential sites where they have developments . The areas are Bradford street , Smithfield and London square.

The agent says that the seller can provide a RICS approved valuation on request. I am not familiar with this method of valuation . Does anyone have advice . Charlie
  6. I have 600,000 pounds to invest as a buy to let landlord . I am looking in London but can't help thinking there are better returns elsewhere . Any advice welcomed. Charle
