  1. Thank you, I thought as much. The help to buy has certainly helped me move my family to a better home and area, it is more now a case of my impatience getting the best of me as so keen to get started with my property dreams. Not to worry, I will make the most of the time with further planning and research
  2. Good morning all, I recently moved house last year with the use of the help to buy scheme this now means I can't own any other properties without breaking the terms.

If you have any suggestions as to which course I should move on to next that would be great although I do plan to make my way through them all ... eventually 🤣
  5. Hi all, My name is Laura and like so many others I've dreamt my entire life of becoming a property mogul and owning my own empire (mainly from overdosing on Sarah Beeny and Homes Under The Hammer as a teen). I worked as an estate agent in my early 20s mainly being the point of call for the property investors I so desperately envied! Still I had young children and so no action was taken. I'm now well into my 30s, I am a full time working Mum and the pandemic has put things into severe perspective for me that I spend far too much time at work and not enough with my family. I wa
