Hi, I am about to complete on my first BTL property which i have managed to purchase around BMV (around £26k under). I will be looking to refinance after 6months to release my deposit, but, my qu is: should i try and add value to the property before refinancing, or as i have bought BMV, is that enough to pull out all of my deposit money after a refinance? The property is already tenanted, and is in reasonable condition. Plus, i don't really want to disturb the tenants too much as they are reliable and have even signed for a 2yr AST. Thanks! I look forward to the replies! Lee

My question is, if I'm buying away from where I live and I don't have a lot of experience with refurbishing properties, is this still a good strategy? I would have to find a construction company, trust that they do the right job, won't charge me a fortune, the refurb will not take too l
