  1. Hi all I am new to lease options and had a couple of detailed questions. I may not have fully understood the mechanics of the investor 'babysitting' the vendor's mortgage but where does the risk of non-payment of the mortgage sit? Is this still with the vendor or the investor. I presume lease option only work if the mortgage company grants permission to let?

  2. Hi all I am looking for a ‘bank account aggregator’ or budgeting app that links to my accounts that also allows me to categorise my cash spending and provides up to date remaining budget information instantly on my phone. I know a recent resource of the week was Toshl but I don’t believe this has the bank account link.

  4. Hi all, long time listener of the property podcast and reader of the forum. I wanted to become more actively involved now I own a B2L and feel like I have some experience, if only a couple of months. I’ve recently moved from a house I owned (mortgaged) to a joint mortgaged property with my partner. I have however retained my previous property as a single B2L. The move was more stressful than a normal move due to preparing the house for rental and the timing. We only just completed on 31st March avoiding the SDLT surcharge. I am currently based in the west midlands, north of Birmingham.
