  1. Thanks for reply Conrad. Really appreciate the help. The answers that I have to some of your questions are; Purchase Price £79k, Currently let at £465/month. Tenants have been there just under a year and I’m let to believe no missed payments. The house was immaculate when I went to view, though they did have a full day of viewing so could just have staged that, I suppose. I will go back to the estate agent and add your questions about affordability and history to the list I’m already asking. Thanks again
  2. Hi all, We have had a few great bits of advice from this site and I’m back for more. We’ve had an offer accepted on our first BTL and the property has existing tenants.

  4. Hi all, We are currently looking at a deal with an estate agent where the property is currently rented out on a company let. The company are keen to extend the AST for another 12 months. It is currently occupied by three unrelated people, each with their own room, with a shared kitchen and bathroom. It’s my understanding that the property does not require a HMO licence as there are less than 5 occupiers. My questions are (I’m sure I’ll think of more); do we need to consider anything specific for a company let? What should we do differently than a vanilla BTL? Are there
