  4. 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 about what kind of projects other people do so please do not hesitate to contact me if you've got any worries or queries regarding current or future projects, building works on the go, issues with a fellow builder (we can be a handful sometimes but with patience and beer you might get a smile!) or any others that you think I might be able to help with. I specially love looking at projects to be, feasibility studies to explore the potential of a deal. I'm happy to give rough estimates free of charge and also my opinion as a construction professional on how easy - challenging the idea you've got in mind can be. Bests, Luis
  5. Hi everyone, My question is as it says in the title really... does anyone have any recommendations for companies that they've worked with in Northamptonshire who can manage end to end refurbs? I'm in the process of buying a 2 bed terraced house that needs a full refurb (gas needs connecting, damp dealing with, central heating putting in, new bathroom, new kitchen etc. etc.) so am looking to get some quotes and choose a contractor in the next month or so. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi, We’re approaching completion on a 3-bed Semi in Stockport that needs a full refurb including removal of one wall, installation of central heating and a rewire. Ca anybody recommend any contractors covering the Stockport area that take on full management of this type of project, or alternatively any specific trades people covering then same area? many thanks Tom
  7. Dear Hubbers, My partner and I have just acquired a big project... three, actually. They are semi-detached Victorian properties divided into between 4 and 6 flats each. They require a total refurbishment. Anyone know of a reliable builder team that could manage to do all 3 properties at once to relatively strict timelines? We do need quality fit and finish as we intend to hold on to the properties indefinitely. Thanks in advance! CD
  8. Hi Everyone Before I ask for some advice, I would like to offer up myself to chat to anyone who is interested in what I am doing. I am doing a flip of an off market property using none of my own money, and doing it through a profit share with my builder. It is my first renovation project and have managed to raise a substantial amount of finance for the project through mostly friends and family. I was wondering if anyone has a template for a profit share agreement between an individual and a builder? I am writing one out myself at the moment but was looking for someone who maybe has some experience of this to provide advice as to the 'must haves' in the agreement? Many thanks in advance and, as I mentioned, please do not hesitate to drop me a message! Cheers Matthew

  11. Hi, I am an investor and have a small portfolio in the area where I live in the South East, and after months of deliberation I have decided to take the plunge, expand, and buy a more affordable property in Liverpool. I have some viewings lined up for tomorrow and I have also arranged to meet a builder who worked on 3 properties for another investor last year, whose details I received from an estate agent. Can anyone recommend any companies or builders to project manage/carryout the works, or any tips in general. Any comments would be appreciated. Many thanks. Andy
  12. Hi all I have a Victorian 3 story house in Hastings, bought at auction. It needs a 'full refurb': i.e. new double glazing, new wiring and plumbing, new flooring new kitchen and bathrooms. Anyone have any experience of this area? Is there a good contractor anyone would recommend, past the usual checkatrade and google searches? Or is there a better place to search? Is it possible to advertise the job, and if so, does anyone know a forum? Thanks Mat

  15. Dear all, I’m currently looking into a small development opportunity around the Littlehampton area - can anyone recommend a good and reliable builder? TIA Charlotte
  16. I currently have a great deal on the go, a 5 bed HMO bought as a lease option. But it's in a bad state and in need of a renovation. The property is located in Great Yarmouth any contact details to good reliable builders in this area would be very helpful.
  17. Hi Guys Looking to start a major refurb project and therefore looking for a well priced but reliable builder in the High Wycombe area. Kind Regards Amir
  18. Help required please. Just made my first purchase in Manchester in the Whalley Range area. I've bought a one bed flat which is a 1970's build purpose built apartment. I need a bit of work carried out on the place, nothing too substantial, but enough that I'd want someone / a team that know what they're doing. Main jobs are: - light fittings changing - walls lightly reskimmed / smoothed out where required - plasterboard some ceiling areas - new bathroom suite fitted and tiling Should be maximum 7-10 days labour at a push based on previous renovations I've done down south. Can anyone recommend any decent tradespeople in the Manchester area? I've had a couple of quotes using mybuilder and rated people and the cost of trades was coming in over double what I've paid down south in the past - I wonder if that's because there's more competition / Eastern European labour available in London? Would really, really appreciate any leads. Thanks in advance guys!
  19. I'm about to embark on a build project & it's been suggested the builders work under a JCT - joint contract tribunal documentation. Anyone had any thoughts / recommendations / advice?
  20. Hi All. Can anyone recommend a builder/tradesmen in the Aylesbury area? The BTL refurbishment I'm considering would involve: - a kitchen refit, including knocking a wall through to an existing bathroom to create a kitchen/dining area - installing a new bathroom - installing two new ensuites - construction of several stud walls Thanks. Also, any estimates of cost? I'm assuming about £7000 for the kitchen refurb, £5000 for the new bathroom and £4000 for each new ensuite. Regards, Roger
  21. Hi All, I'm looking for someone to do a refurb in the Newcastle area for me. I work full time so am not able to be on site alot. Ideally It would be someone I could entrust the project management side of things to also. Can anyone recommend anyone please? Many thanks in advance Al Robinson

  23. Hi all, Going to see a property in North London which, by the looks of the photos, is in need of some work (probably new kitchen, bathrooms, plumbing??? etc) on Friday and was hoping to take along a builder to get some initial costings. This will be my first "fixer-upper" so wondered if anyone could recommend someone / a company they've worked with before that they trust and could help me ask the right questions and perhaps answer some of mine too? Thanks Jonny
  24. The two types of semi-detached house are either linked by garages, or living room/bedroom. What is the logic of the two designs? Why would architects/builders choose one over the other? Thanks
