  1. Hi All, I've always been interested in the property market and have recently moved back to London from Dubai. I'm in a position where I have a £50k deposit and would like to make my first investment. I'm interested in Leeds. I was just hoping to get some advise on which specific area I should be looking at. I would preferably like to invest in an area which is popular with young professionals. I'm planning a trip to Leeds next month and have started doing some research. Could anyone who's had experience in the Leeds market give me any advise? A
  2. Happy new year, I hope you’re well. I have a hypothetical scenario based question and was wondering if you could help. Scenario: · I own a flat (~£550K – £600K) and my girlfriend owns a flat (~£325K. Both are mortgaged. She has now moved in with me and currently renting her flat out. · We have seen a property we would like to purchase together. We envisage funding the prospective purchase through equity release from the flat I own, the sale of her flat, the rest being made up of a mortgage and cash. · The intention is to keep the flat I own an
  3. Hello All, I am looking to make my first property investment this year and my decided location is Nottingham. I am ideally looking to buy a house (personal preference i have nothing against flats). I was just wondering are there any roads/streets that i should avoid buying. I have done some research and the post codes that stick out to me are NG1, NG3 & NG7. Would love to know what anybody thinks about these postcodes. Kind regards, Jay
  4. Hello, I'm keen to get started in property investing. Have a 5 year plan to gain £2000 net rental income a month. From my research I won't be able to get a HMO mortgage without a minimum of 6 months as a BTL landlord. So would it be correct for me to get a low cost BTL that generates positive cash flow then get a HMO property later. Have little saving and £25k salary, whats everyone's ideas on raising a deposit using 0% interest credit card? Also parents have 1 rental property with no debt attached to it and would like to invest in another property, ho
  5. Evening everyone, I'm Adam, I have always been floating around in the back ground reading forums, listening to podcasts but never wrote into the forum myself. (first time for everything I suppose). I see a lot of helpful people and answers all over the forums, I'm hoping now I have the courage to write a comment myself that this will give me the kick I need to just go for it. Right so hear goes. I have a annual salary of around £30k and I currently have one property which I am deciding to rent out after a light referb, due to moving in with my girlfriend in her pro
  6. Hi guys, at the risk of sounding like an idealist- does anybody know of any letting agents that offer individual property management services on a piece-meal basis, as opposed to the full suite? For example ONLY tenant vetting or ONLY marketing. It seems as though its all or nothing with most of the agents…
  7. Hi Tribers, My solicitor recommended I take out director's insurance against cyber crime as part of my limited company purchase- reason being its apparently increasingly common for company directors' details to be appropriated (simple companies house beta search) and frauded. Wondering if anyone else in the community has opted to take this up as part of their ltd co borrowing (or is it a bit of a red herring)? and whether the costs is reasonable? Thanks
  8. Hi guys, just a quick few questions on tax that come up less often. BTL insurance claim, if you claim on your insurance for damage to a BTL property, do you claim the insurance payout as income and claim any contractor repair costs as expenses or do you claim neither as its an insurance payout rather than earned income? If you withhold some or all of the deposit due to losses of time, work, rent, damage or whatever, either for actual contractor costs or for your own time and hard work to clean and repair etc, does this need to be claimed as income or not as the deposit
  9. Hi, I am currently stuck in a consent to let nightmare and I was hoping I could get some help or advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The issues I have span a long list, but I have summarized most of the issues. In 2007 I bought a 1 bedroom apartment (new build/off plan) in Sheffield City Center for £106k (100% mortgage), myself and my wife lived there until 2010. In 2010 we bought a 3 bedroom house together. Because I was in a fixed mortgage for the apartment, I couldn't move to a different lender. So after failed attempts to sell the apartm
  10. Hi guys, I'm looking for recommendations on what areas in and around Crewe would be good to invest in for a single/double buy to let? Done some initial research and aware of the planned regeneration of the town centre shopping mall/cinema, as well as HS2 in 2027- however would really appreciate input from any of you that have 1st hand knowledge/ insight of Crewe. Thanks in advance
  11. Hi Folks A quick question regarding transfer of a privately owned property into a LTD company. The property I want to transfer is without any mortgage so I guess that all that remains to be done is for a solicitor to register the property in the company's name at the land registry office. Has anyone done this before? Any idea how much I should budget for? And also when it comes to the stamp duty, will I have to pay for a valuation? and what stage of the process would I need to do this? I'm an 'accidental landlord', but now that the mortgage is
  12. Hey guys, I'm Tom and I live in Rugby in the west midlands. I'm new to the game and have just set out my goals. I'm looking to achieve a monthly income from profit of £2000 in the next 3 years. I'm pretty busy with work so I've set the strategy of BTL with buying low and adding value, with the intention of recycling my deposits. I haven't got a lot of capital at the moment, however I have my own home with some equity built up. My first SMART goal is to buy one property in the first 12 months, which requires me to save a certain amount and release some from my home
  13. Hi everyone !! I am looking to buy my first btl property. Can anyone recommend best Nottingham area to invest in..... Looking at properties up to 100k at the start so i guess options are limited... Many thanks to those who reply. Greg
  14. Hello everyone, I'm currently just starting on my property investment journey and am looking for some advice please. The story so far . . . I currently own my own home (mortgaged) . . . . the LTV is currently 68% with 96k o/s on my existing mortgage. I currently have around 30k equity in my home. Mortgage payments are currently around £450pcm, rental for my area is currently around £650 / £700pcm (there is currently hardly anything to rent in my area, rightmove currently comes up with 1 property) My partner does not currently live with me but is loo
  15. Hi all, Looking for some advice on the question below as I have been on the unfortunate side of being charged 3% on my new residential property price although my converted LTB was priced and remortgaged significantly lower than the new residential. Is it possible for me to convert my current residential property into a BTL and then rent/move in with a friend for a period of 6 months and then buy a new residential mortgage without incurring the 3% ADS on the purchase price on my new residential home and instead, it would be calculated off my BTL at the time of conversion
  16. Hi all. I hope you're well. I am currently looking at a property in Liverpool (Kensington) as a vanilla buy to let. This would be my first investment in Liverpool and I wanted to run it over with an experienced Landlord before going ahead with it. Just wanted thoughts on the location, price etc. It would be great if someone can help me out and offer me some advice. Thanks Naj
  17. Its amazing how much negativity there is at the moment amongst existing and long standing BTL investors (for negativity see propertytribes.com ) ..... I understand that tax changes have slimmed margins down. However the capital gains that most people have made and will make in the next few years if they have bought well and invested in their properties make it a lucrative market to be involved in. The property market has some way to go until it reaches the peak in this economic cycle.... London/South is dipping now for sure , however, huge infrastructure investment HS2/Cross Rail
  18. Hi there, I'm looking for advice/ suggestions on general areas to invest within Leicester city center. Currently researching 2 bed flats, with the primary aim being yield (net 6%+); and I'm keen to get a steer on which areas I should be targeting/ avoiding. Suggestions and input very much welcome!
  19. So. I’ve finally managed to figure out what the right strategy is for me once my deposit is saved. May father did tell me that he was willing to borrow me £20,000 towards my first project but as much as i have a great relationship with him I feel borrowing money from him for a first project is not a good idea. I can currently save 1,500 a month so it’s a better idea to just wait 17 months for a healthy pot to start. My strategy is for my first property to get a BTL mortgage and buy a house with the BRR model in mind as it’s slightly less risky than getting bridging for my firs
  20. Hi all Apologies if this has been covered previously, I have searched for it but could find anything specific. I have two questions, as follows: 1) I am resident in Guernsey - still part of the UK - does anyone know if this would be a problem for me in trying to obtain financing for a Ltd Co from a UK provider? 2) Do I need to be a homeowner in order to obtain a BTL mortgage through a Ltd Co? My partner and I are saving for a deposit on a BTL and would like to purchase this before we think about buying our own place (we have our reasons, m
  21. Hello All, Just a quick question, I have seen properties in the north like Blackburn and Hull starting from 40k. I would not be investing for capital gains, but rather cash flow. What are your thoughts? Is this acheivable? Many thanks,
  22. Hi Hubbers, I'm Matt and taking first proper steps on the property 'journey'. I wanted to make a move back in 2013 but learning from the Rob's and Pete Matthew, I took a step back to build my finances and a safe base. That's now done and realigning my efforts. Based in Stourbridge West Midlands, I'm planning to create a BTL company, forcing appreciation through refurbs then refinancing. The goal is to create enough passive income to quit my job. Stretch target is 45, but at least by 50. I'm a professionally qualified Civil Engineer with construction, site management and design exp
  23. Hello Hubbers! We have finally got an offer accepted on a one bed flat facing the sea! We aim to short-term rent it on booking.com and Airbnb. After speaking to two mortgage brokers, there is only one lender who will offer a mortgage to us as a holiday let through a limited company. They are offering an average 3.3% for a two year fixed rate but has £2800 of fees attached to it (property is only £160k). Plus really horrible rates for solicitors which I might be charged twice for (dual representation??) My accountant doesn't really understand about property s
  24. So, first post in the forum - be nice! Long story short, my wife and I own a rental property (3-bed house in SE18, London) that is tenanted for the next 11months. As we've slowly explored the challenges posed by the new tax regime on landlords, we believe our best move is to continue investing via a limited company...however it won't be cost effective to move our current property to one (switching ownership between us isn't optimal either). Question then is "can we sell a property with tenants in it"? Does anyone have experience of this? It clearly lessens the target ma
  25. Hi everyone, My name's Ben, and I'm a website designer based in Bournemouth, looking to make my first strides into property. So far I've been along to Property Hub Meetups, and absorbed lots of books, podcasts, videos, you name it! But I want to go up a gear and increase tangible action, which is part of the reason I'm here. I've been advised to start off simple, and so am looking initially at buying small flats for single let. However, I'm really interested in serviced accommodation as a longer-term strategy. Great to be here, and feel free to a
