Interests outside property

  1. Hi, i'm a first time BTL investor. I would really appreciate views on whether this is a good investment. 1 bed flat £150k in Saxton Lane, Leeds LS9. It's off plan development to be completed Q3 2022. Rental yield 6.5%. I'm interested to know if Leeds as a whole is worth while and particularly this area of LS9 which is a 17 min walk to the station. Plan is to keep the property for 5 to 10 years. I've heard growth in Leeds is expected to be 3.2% p.a is this correct?
  2. Hello fellow investors, I am new to BTL (but have done 6 months of very solid research and am ready to invest!). I am interested mainly in Capital Growth (with positive cashflow of course...). Interested in simple BTL as I do not have time for HMO or short lets. I am planning on investing (via Ltd) in Sheffield and/or Leeds area but am based in London. I am also personally buying property in Poland (for yield and also for tax reasons) Currently I work in London and my work brings me to Sheffield quite often and I know that city. In the future I want to build Capital Growth
  3. Hello I'm James, If you are like me you'll have binged The Property Hub, bought yourself as many books to read on the subject, and spent hours researching investment strategies and properties because you live life wildly and that's how you get your kicks. I'm 26 and new to property investment, it'd be great to chat to anyone in a similar place, and build a network of like minded people. I may be able to offer some guidance on where to look for good research on local economic fundamentals. About me, I studied economics at university, and have worked in economic development roles
  4. Hi, Nice to meet you all. It's my first post on this forum. I planning to do my buy to let in the north. I was thinking that Leeds might be a great location to start (house prices are still decent compared to larger cities such Manchester) and it feels that the city is growing and attracting more businesses. I have seen this place on right move (https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/73474821#/). The price looks incredibly low and the yield pretty interesting (11.5%) - to be double checked though. I was just curious to have your opinion on the below questions: 1) I
  5. Hi, I am a BTL investor looking to purchase some 2/3 bed houses in Leeds. I'm currently living down in London and am well aware with the important of knowing the particular area of where i am purchasing. To this end, im looking for a local managing agent to work with who is knowledgeable and reasonable, does anyone have any experiences or recommendations? Thanks
  6. Hiya, I am London based and started a while ago to focus on Leeds as my investment area. I have bought my first BTL in York about a yar ago and now looking to do student HMO's in Leeds around Headingley. It is article 4 yes, and while one does pay a bit of a premium for that you also get piece of mind of not having to worry about future competition (new HMOs pop up left right and centre these days) and a very low amount voids. So I don’t think it’s all bad. Also from deals i am finding, the number still stack up quite well (i.e. 15% ROI in a ltd with full mgmt.) Anyway, I started talking
  7. Hi, just joined the forum! Been listening to the podcast for a year or so! Accidental landlord of one flat In Essex. Just got £30k of cash out of the existing property and considering low maintenance flat in Liverpool (or Sheffield or Leeds). Heading up north later this week to have first look at areas in city centre armed with Rightmove and Zoopla. Would be good to chat to some agents I guess but I am on step 1 of this so nowhere near ready to commit. Obvs loads of agents in liverpool, haven’t a clue if they are good bad or indifferent. Any advice/ recommendations welcome... looking at circa
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. Hi I am looking to add to our portfolio. I am particularly interested in a new or fairly new build apartment as close to the city centre as £160-£170k will buy me. I know the area reasonably well. If anybody has any knowledge of anything coming up or even on the market now I would be really grateful. Regards, Andy

    Leeds HMO Advice

    Hi All, I'm looking to start my BTL portfolio and am taking a trip up to Leeds this weekend to look at potentially buying a place there. Currently I'm looking for yield and so have decided that a student/ young professional HMO may be a good option for me. I used to go to uni there so I know the Leeds university areas well (i.e. Woodhouse, Hyde Park etc.) but I don't know much about the other areas. I'm looking to find out: - Which areas are recommended? - Would you avoid houses that don't currently have a HMO license? If it doesn't currently have one is it not likely t
  12. Hi there, I am purchasing two flats in Leeds and need a recommended company to do the surveys. Any recos? Thanks a lot Nick
  13. Hi All, I am looking to purchase a 4 bed HMO / Student Property in Sheffield or Leeds. I would like to purchase within the next two months, however I am worried that the 2nd – 4th year students would have already found their property for the academic year. Would you suggest purchasing and then renting out to young professionals (sourcing on spareroom etc.) on a short term let basis until June / July 2020 and then move the students in. Thanks,
  14. Hi Everyone, I have made the decision to travel up to Leeds next weekend to carry out some viewings on property up to about £110,000. Only have 1 day and i want to make the most of the trip to get a feel and understanding of what and where is good new for a B2L and i don't want to waste any time doing it. can anyone advise me on some particular B2L hotspots in Leeds that i should make sure i go and see? I am split between going for a 1 or 2 bed apartment or a 2 bed terraced house that needs some TLC. any advise would be really welcome.
  15. Hi all – first post in and hoping I can use this platform to tap into some great minds. I have been listening to Rob(s) podcast for a while now and have been doing a lot to try and educate myself on the ins and outs of property investing for beginners. I feel like I have a learnt so much over the past year, but I have the biggest frustration of not being in a financial position ready to start my venture. I have recently purchased a house (joint mortgage with my partner) so have limited equity available to release from that. I earn a decent enough salary that I am able to put away aro
  16. I’m looking to buy a BTL property in Leeds but I don’t know the city very well, does anyone have any recommendations of good areas and areas to avoid? I’m looking for a nice 2/3 bed house that can attract young professionals. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  17. Hi All, Sorry for the long post. I'm totally new to this and was hoping to gain advice from you all, so any wisdom imparted would be sincerely appreciated. I'm interested in beginning my property investment journey after gaining much confidence from the contents on this wonderful site. I'm from Birmingham but live and work in London. Initially, I was looking for a high yielding B2L property in somewhere like Sheffield or Nottingham, to potentially net between £500 - £1,000 per month cashflow to generate some passive income. As a newbie, I want a hands off approach, interested in mode
  18. Hi all, New to the forum and trawling through all the great content. Myself and my wife are looking for buy to let properties (mainly in the areas recommended by Rob and Rob on the podcast). Leeds stands out a bit for me, I've spent a couple of nights in Leeds and like the city centre a lot so am quite keen on the area for a buy to let. We're mainly looking for new or nearly new apartments that will require (hopefully) minimal effort in terms of management. I've noticed the LS9 postcode is relatively cheap and it seems there is a lot of regeneration going on neary by with the South b
  19. Hi All! I am super keen to build out my small BTL portfolio in Leeds. I found a stunning new build of townhouses but the developers say they won't sell to BTL landlords - is there any way around this? If not, does anyone have some advice of new builds/areas in Leeds city centre where I should be looking? Ideally 2/3 bed, unqiue feature(s)? Thanks in advance Nick
  20. Hi, I am a new investor doing my background work for my first BRR and am looking for some advise on areas to consider and/or introductions to trustworthy property sources in the area. kind regards
  21. 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
  22. Hi, Please can anyone recommend a residential surveyor in the Leeds/Bradford area (property is located west of Leeds). I've had a couple of quotes which are fine but time frames are too long. Any help would be be much appreciated. Thanks Rick
  23. Hi, I have undertaken a few renovations of projects in Hull in the past few years, so have a few tradesmen I use. However, I have just purchased a 3 bedroom flat in Leeds City center that requires renovation works. As I don't know any local tradesmen where would people recommend to try and find then? Does any one use any particular websites like Checkatrade.com? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Hey everyone! Becoming increasingly keen on an investment property in Leeds. We want to go for capital growth rather than a good yield and looking for advice on main areas of Leeds to focus on - whether that be new builds or we do have the resource for refurb projects if it will actually add value in areas that are likely to grow. We can't decide whether to go for city centre flats geared for professionals, or a larger property potentially for student accommodation. Have seen lots of lovely new build flats in the centre, but they seem expensive compared the rest of
  25. Hi all, Listened to the podcasts/ Rob D's audio books for over a year to prepare for investing. What triggered this was being faced with the decision to keep or sell a property that was my main home, once I bought a new place with my partner. With reading all about Section 24... I decided to sell, set up a limited company and get started! It started as educating myself to make sure I was making the right decision, but has developed in to something much more... where I have a 10 year plan to build enough passive income to replace my current income. I am curre
