  1. Hi everyone hope you are all well and keeping safe. I have been using the time off to get my property business started. I am currently writing a business plan that I intend to show to potential investors when required. Can anyone give me some advice as to what to put in it with regards to legal requirements? The sections I have included so far are; Business details Key personnel The business idea Business goals Legal requirements Market research Managing market risks Potential tenants Promotion and advertising Back up plan Any other advice or information I should add in would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance James
  2. Hi everyone hope you are all well and surviving the lockdown. I am looking to JV with someone I am based in the Scottish Borders, I would like to focus on BRR on 1 or 2 bed flats I would be looking to do all the management and renovation myself. Would be interested in having a chat with anyone who thinks we could help each other and work together. Please get in touch here or look me up on linkedin. Cheers James
  3. Hi all looking for advice on a good deal analyser app. Any advice would be appreciated James
  4. Cheers James. Good to know I can get advice from someone up here on Scotland
  5. I am based in Galashiels in the Scottish Borders. This is probably the area I will invest in once I start as I know the area so well. I have been attending a couple of investor meetings in Edinburgh which has been good. I hear Glasgow is a good place to invest just now. Have you got much going on there just now?
  6. Thanks James. I looked into it further and I found the link you shared. At least we can charge the tenant for this but still something that needs to be considered. Are you based up in Scotland?
  7. Thanks Craig this is what I thought already. I feel the solicitor my be getting confused or perhaps clueless.
  8. Hi everyone. Just a small query about stamp duty. My wife is in the process of renting out her commercial property in Scotland and her solicitor has brought up the possibility of having to pay stamp duty on this. I have never heard of this but wondered if anyone could shed a bit of light on the subject. As I am looking to invest in residential property in the future I would be keen to learn more on this as its not something I have taken into consideration until now. Any advice is welcome and thanks all in advance. James
  9. I am on audible and the release date on that book is 29/01/16. So I am guessing its not been updated
  10. Cheers Alex. I would love to come to the meetups unfortunately none are anywhere near me. This site and podcast seems to be a really good source of information and everyone on here has been super helpful and friendly. It's good to hear that you have used this site for your research and now have 2 properties with a third in the pipeline. I can't wait to get stuck in and buy my first on. I am sure I will be looking to you all for advice when the time comes.
  11. Still trying to work this site out guys, I hope you both got my replies of thanks
  12. Thanks guys going to book into the next pin meeting in september.
  13. Hi everyone. I have been looking into doing some property investment courses but I'm very unsure as to whether they are all a con. Has anyone here been to any and could anyone recommend some?
  14. Hi everyone I have been thinking about a mentor recently as the more research I do the subject keeps coming up. But to be honest I wouldn't even know where to begin when looking for one and should there be a charge and if so what sort of price range. At the moment I do not have any properties as I am still in the research stage of my journey. I am based in the Scottish Borders about 30 miles south of Edinburgh so someone with a good knowledge of this area would be helpful. If anyone can point me in the right direction or wants to help in any way it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi all Just joined the property hub after listening to the podcast. Just wondering if anyone is investing up in Scotland or from Scotland? I am at the start of my journey and looking to learn as much as possible. I think this might be a great place to speak to like minded people and i look forward to getting to know you all.
