  1. Hi rogerh and thanks for the response. Bought through an agent in Bolton and got them to manage as well.

That was a mistake and ended up costing me more and a lot of stress. However agents very helpful in attending property to let trades and delivery people in. Ordered a lot of IKEA furniture and got a company to put most of it together for 10% of price. I spent a day putting the rest together. I went up there 4 or 5 times in
  2. Thanks for your responses everyone. The article was a good informative read. I've now had the survey done and its raised a couple of problems.

So the first property I did was a 6 bed HMO in Bolton. Had a few problems but good learning curve and now fully let and managed by agents and making about £900 profit a month. I have just had an offer accepted on my second property also in the North West. Its a former pub which has been converted into 4 flats, 3 x 2 bed and 1 x 1 bed. It also has 4 garages with it. The flats are all let out and the annual rent is £19
