  1. Hi all, I'm hoping someone out there with some experience can help me. This will be my third buy-to-let but my first leasehold property. I've run the figures and they add up well. It is a 1 bed top floor apartment with good transport links to the city. My offer is £125,000 and the rental estimate is £625-£650 pcm. However, my concerns are as follows: There is a £678 service charge per year. I have been told that this is £200 more than all the other apartments due to the need for the aqua system for fire safety. This seems a lot of money to me, and I asked if this
  2. Hi, I'm writing to enquire about any property finders on property hub that operate in the Midlands and North of England. We're looking for small apartment blocks close to local amenities and public transport in residential areas. Please get in touch to discuss our criteria. Kind regards, Jon
  3. 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
  4. Hi everyone, I have been meaning to do this for a while. I am a Belfast investor who having moved to the city this year am enthused by the dozens of cranes in the skyline that havnt been here in such numbers ever. I prefer professional new build apts in central belfast areas. I will be in the position to buy another property towards the end of the year and at the minute the north of England is the most appealing as frankly I cant find the deals here at home. I have tried to contact developers as an individual investor to get bmv deals to no avail and tr
  5. Hey all, We are looking at the potential of investing in new apartment developments under construction in the centre of Liverpool and Manchester. This is outside our comfort zone of purchasing typical housing and would welcome any advice. The investment companies/agents websites, promise 6-7% yields and near guaranteed lets. Is this sales patter or realistic expectations? Any positive or bad experiences? Property Investment/Agent Companies to avoid? Specific risks associated with this type of investment? What type of apartments
  6. Hello everyone! I am so glad to have come across this forum. I'm new here and have dabbled in small scale development in the past. I've recently acquired a large property that I intend to convert into Apartments on each floor. Several Architects have visited the property and said it wouldn't need major works to convert. Obviously, this would be subject to the necessary funding and planning permissions being agreed for the conversion. I'm unsure as to doing it via my personal name or as a Ltd Co. So.. I'm looking to hear from anyone i
  7. Hi, I'm looking for some advice for investing in property in Ickenham. I've come across a development called Harefield Place which I thought looked interesting: http://www.harefieldplace.com/ What do you guys think? It's close to London, good transport links and has a lot of land.
  8. Hi I have a small number of BTL houses and so far I have managed to add value and pull out most of my cash as I have gone along. I'm attracted to investing in apartments as the maintenance requirements seem generally lower and I have found some deals that seem to offer good returns. However my concern is how I can uplift the value in order to refinance and get my deposit back out. I can see it could be done with reconfiguring a 1 bed to 2 or extending the lease but with a newer build property even buying BMV I presume I would be waiting for the uplift in the general market? Am
  9. Hi everyone, 32 yo first time buyer, currently overseas but looking at buying an apartment in Liverpool this year. Wondering if anyone has any advice or tips for properties, prices seem to be rocketing up. Would a one bed flat in Aigburth be a good investment vs a CBD / Waterfront unit? budget is about 100k any comments appreciated, escpeically which buildings have said good reputation / which are best avoided..

  11. Hello everyone Completely new investor here, kiwi/Brit expat living in Dubai who wants to decide on future goals for family and sees property investment as a way of acheiving these goals and enabling us to live a better life within a certain time frame. Initially looking for assistance with releasing equity from a property we own in the UK (do I need a mortgage broker for this?) and then will need assistance of a property company for investment guidance/strategy and then a mortgage broker that specialises in setting up expat mortgages for our next purchase. We are completely seriou
  12. Hi all, I am about to do a pretty thorough refurbishment of a 1 bed city centre apartment in Dublin. It was built about 20 years ago so is pretty dated and needs new kitchen and bathroom and I'll probably do new floors while I'm at it. I like all my properties to have some kind of a hook, something about them that sets them apart from the hundreds of other more or less identifical apartments out there, and gets them let quicker and attracts tenants who can afford a higher rent. It can be something about the position, the view, the building, the facilities, or in cases where these
