  1. Has anyone experience with selling a btl flat with a tenant in place? best wishes Oz
  2. Wow! So many buyers from Hong Kong buy property in Manchester. I have been deal sourcing / investing in Manchester for years and I have never seen so much interest from Hong Kong. Nick - Smarter Property smarterproperty.net Are other people seeing a lot of new interest in Manchester?
  3. Hello Property Hub! Firstly I have to say I’m blown away with all of the content and knowledge sharing on here. I stumbled across Property Hub a couple of a weeks ago and my world and plans have completely changed. With that said I’m new to property and I’m looking to build a network in order to start investing over the next 6 months. I’m currently based on the south coast, channel island and London and I plan to invest up north. Liverpool - Manchester - Sheffield etc. but I’m very much an open book and not set on any particular location. My initial thoughts are BTL but aga
  4. Hello, I am a new investor and understand you can take £3k out of your limited company into your personal name / year tax free as a dividend. I have three questions relating to this. 1. really I would like to continue building money within the company to invest in further buy to let properties. Therefore is it possible to take the £3k from rent/ year and immediately re invest the money as back into the company so that you could take a tax free lump sum in the future as this would in effect be your company returning the money you lent it? Ie. The same as you can remove your initi
  5. Hi there I am very grateful for this platform. Thank you! I am going to be moving up to Liverpool for a few weeks to source and buy a BTL property. I am looking at L6 and L7. My aim is rental yields, not so much CG. I really want to network there but it's not that easy. For £150k with 25/30% deposit I am wondering if I go for a better built 3 bedroom house (easy to manage) or a simpler 4 bedroom place (higher yield +more risk). The aim, if all goes well, is to return before end of the Stamp Duty Holiday and purchase another property (Possibly an HMO) for bigger yields.
  6. Hi Property Hub members Having recently joined Property Hub I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I live and work in London and have had a keen interest in property and property investments for several years now. So far much of my attention was on purchasing and refurbishing my own home in London. Now that this is done, I would like to take the next step and invest some of my savings and recurring job income into BTL property. In terms of strategy, I am looking for BTL investments with a yield above 5%. That rules out most of Southern England. So I am planning to inv
  7. Hi all, I am looking to remortgage a BTL to release some equity, the BTL is currently let to an company on government AASC contracts to house asylum seekers (previous known as COMPASS contract). The company dealt with all the day to day issues, maintaining the property and paying the rent. The lease usually lasts 5-10 years. Is it possible to get a mortgage, if so, what are their typical terms please - LTV/Interest rate etc.? Many thanks!
  8. Dear Property Hub community, My name is Luis, I'm a Spanish Construction Engineer that has lived half of his life already here in the UK. I'm passionate about property investment, for now I've done mainly buy to lets and a couple flips. I'm MCIOB, so charted construction manager and I've got my own small design and build company in partnership with an architect and a Surveyor. I'm also working my way into becoming a residential valuer through RICS. almost there, but not just yet! I would be very happy to help anyone interested in investing in property so I can learn a
  9. Hey PH! After being made redundant in the current covid climate, I've taken the opportunity to learn everything I possibly can do about property investment. As things are progressing, I've started to pull thoughts together and I did want to come to the forum after I had a plan set in stone, however I'd like to build up the network base simultaneously with my education. With a career background in project management in marketing/advertising, I'm very comfortable when it comes to managing projects/portfolios; so I figured that stepping into property would be a smart choice for fu
  10. Hey guys, just thinking it would be great to connect with you all on instagram. Its a much bigger platform now with great content posted constantly from some very experienced investors Anyway my username is unsurprisingly: Leenorthrop Connect and I will follow
  11. Hi all, So myself and 2 other friends (All aged 23) are looking to put our funds together to buy a 3 bedroom property (£180k-£210k) next year, that is in need of interior renovation/modernisation - A relatively easy flip in terms of work to the house. Once flipped, we ideally would like to rent this property out and use a letting agent, possibly with full property management, and split the profit . However, my questions are all mortgage related queries: - How easy is it to swap from a residential Mortgage onto a BTL? Bearing in mind 2 of us are in the RAF so receive several exc
  12. Hi All, I am new to property investing and looking for some general advice early on in my property journey. My sister and I have £1 million in cash to invest and would most likely look to do this through using a limited company as a SPV. We both have limited time available to dedicate to property investing - I work long hours in a full time job and my sister is looking to set up her own non-property business. Ultimate personal goal: Ensure financial freedom, so I have enough passive rental income to quit my day job and and set up my own (non-property) business. General
  13. Hello! I've never used a property sourcing company i was wondering if someone could give me some info on how to find them, work with them and figure out what the usual fees involved are ? I am interested in sourcing property in Leeds and potentially Liverpool and Glasgow. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Hello My parents currently have a BTL property, value of £375-400k with no mortgage, yielding £15k gross per annum. They have pension income of approx. £40k on top of this. My wife and I have a plot of land at the side of our house, that could get PP quite easily for a 3 bed detached. Cost to build would be approx. £300k Could my parents get a mortgage on their BTL property for £300k for the build costs? The new build will be in the names of my wife and me. Possible? If so, which bank / broker should we use?

    HMO vs. BTL

    Hi, I'm new here and this is my first topic. I'm trying to make up my mind which way to go. The HMO way or the single lets way. I'm an expat so I won't be able to manage the property on my own. Since I will have to rely on an agent I think that investing in HMOs might be a safer bet. the reasons are: Rental yields are much higher. Less rental voids since you have multiple tenants. There is less exposure to arrears. The only cons I can find are that it might be more difficult to find an agent who specializes in HMOs. And that there is more wear
  16. Morning all Just wanted to ask for some advice off anyone who is a few steps in front of me or is where I want to be. I am a 20 year old electrician and have been studying about property investment/ development for about a year or two simply just reading books, articles, forums you tube videos etc... My best pal and I (who is also and electrician) have decided to partner up on our property investment journey as we both have very similar if not the same goals relating to where we want to be and also feel that we would work very well with each other. We both live in Caterham surrey and betw
  17. Hi all, My wife an I are new to the property investment game. I am just reaching out to see if anyone could share a basic calculation that they use to formulate an offer on a property that we would like to buy, refurb, refinance and then rent out. I am using figures that involve me buying in cash initially, then hopefully pulling my money out after the refurb, but the offers required seem too low and we haven't had much luck with our offers so far. I'm not sure if I should be focusing on buying with a mortgage so only putting 25% down then refinancing after 6 months?? An
  18. Hello Hubbers, This is week three in my journey into property investment, I have always had an interest in property but that was more towards finding a perfect forever home. After doing some digging and thankfully coming across Rob & Rob's podcast and subsequently The Property Hub it has really lit the proverbial fire into what will become a successful venture in the future. I currently reside in Herefordshire, as the title suggests, with my family so that is ideally where I would like to start my investment portfolio and eventually search further a field after getting my feet w
  19. Hello All, I have been working my butt off for the last two years on flips in the South. I work a 9-5 and have carried out nearly all the work myself, so i have learnt A LOT. Luckily the flips have been really successful and I am now in the fortunate position where i am able to withdraw some of the profits from those flips to invest in BTL properties. The next step is completely new to me. I want to keep my 9-5 (for the time being) and find BTL properties up North with decent yields but i am more focused on long term growth. Two questions; should i be looking at areas
  20.

  21. Hi All, I've been using 14days in an isolation hotel to research, educate and prioritise my investment strategy, to ensure a secure and free future. This forum has been trailed, books read and umpteen brilliant Podcasts listened to, so thanks firstly to Rob + Rob for their inspirational effort and to everyone else involved on this forum! Background: I'm a single 34yr old expat, but although I live abroad it's not essential to my job, so I now intend to move back to the UK at the end of this tax year. Seemingly a hard decision to ponder, but when taking advice and simply w
  22. Good evening, I apologise for how long winded I feel this may be. I feel like I am all over the spot and would appreciate the type of professionals that I could use to achieve my goals (accountant with experience in property investing, tax adviser etc) and even better specific companies who would be recommended. Ok, so I am currently a director of a ltd company which includes me and my senior director based in the North West. We have had a good few years business and have managed to survive lockdown with a reasonable pot of money in the business account. We have decided to take
  23. Hi all, Have finally decided to go for property investing as a way to reach financial freedom. Considering recent tax changes and updated regulations in this space, I’m considering doing it all via an spv and planning to start it out with an HMO. I live in London but want to steer clear of it due to high prices. So I’m looking in the usual suspects, the likes of Man, Bir, Liv... I am looking to share my experience with you guys as I go, but would also appreciate to get yours as I’m pretty new to all of this and feel like I don’t even grasp 1/10 of this subject.
  24. Hi there - first time buyer here looking to begin a BTL portfolio (as a limited company) without buying a main residence first (plenty of detail as to why in the 'Newbie' section!). The main issue mortgage-wise appears to be access to the best rates as a FTB and first time landlord, as a SPV. Question: If I was to purchase a property with cash (via an SPV), let it out, then 'remortgage' (unencumbered remortgage?) after 6 months to release 60% the equity, would this effectively leave me in the same position as getting a 60% LTV mortgage at point of purchase, but open up more (and cheaper)
  25. Hi All, I'm looking for some advice if anyone can help me I currently own a BTL in Nottingham with 61% LTV. The deal I currently have is a 2.58% repayment mortgage until the 31-12-2023. To exit the current agreement I believe it’s between a £3000-£4000 exit fee given that I originally got the deal on a 5-year fixed. My goal however is to change to an interest only mortgage and I’m looking for some advice on whether this is first and foremost sensible and whether it makes sense financially to do so given what’s available in the market? Because of the corona virus, is there anyway I
