  1. Please can someone help! I am in the process of buying my first property through my new ltd company. My guess is it will complete in 6 weeks or so. It is a 3 bed property that will be a single let. The property is perfectly habitable now and could easily be rented out as it is, however I want to do a fairly big refurb. E.g. replacing the kitchen and bathroom, new carpets, redecorate etc. This will mostly be a like-for-like refurb and I don't think the majority of it will count as a capital expense. If I do this work before I first put tenants in, am I right in understanding th
  2. I have bought my own home (3 bed semi) on with a 5 year fixed rate mortgage back in the beginning of 2018, now around 18 months into the 5 years. My plan for my first BLT property is to remortgage this house into a BLT mortgage, and extract the capital as part of the deposit on my new home. I am concerned that because I have committed to a 5 year fixed rate mortgage, I am not sure if I can remortgage or change to a BLT mortgage without paying excessive fees. Having just listened to TPP064 about mortgages, I now see the error of my ways in committing to a 5 year fixed and not weighing up
  3. 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
  4. I’m currently going through my books and something has occurred to me... If I’m spending £20,000 as a capital expense in the acquisition of a property, I will only be able to claim that as an expense when I sell the property. If I don’t sell for another 20 years in line with my business model, that £20,000 will likely be worth much less to me then as it is now due to inflation. I have 2 questions: When we claim against capital expenses 1. Are we allowed to add inflation & if not 2. Is that fair?! Many thanks, Jordan
  5. Good morning all, I have just written this on the way into work on the train, I am hoping to really get started in property and it would be a dream to eventually do up and sell on properties full time. I have never purchased a place before and I wanted to use this forum as a starting place to meet people and gain knowledge. Can anyone recommends some reading firstly on how I can get started? There is so many questions like how much do I need, do I buy post Brexit? Do I hope for another crash and then buy? Is help to buy good etc? If anyone can point me in the right direction as a starting of
  6. Hi Folks, So for those of you who are keeping up with me, you'll know I'm searching all ways of building up my capital to start my own portfolio, so here's my next potential scheme, that I'd like your advice on please! So me and my partner are looking at getting our first home in the next 8 months, looking to get settled and secure before investing. The original plan was to find a nice house that's ready to live in, however! Now I'm learning more and more about property, my thoughts are as follows; could we, buy a BMV home, refurbish it, settle in for a year maybe two then address any furth
  7. Hi again guys! So I have luckily found myself a mentor to help me gain more experience on property, which I'm really excited about! I'm still learning lots from the podcast and reading book after book, however I am eager to start to get some hands on experience. My now mentor flips property and has agreed to bring me along for the ride, taking me to auctions and letting me see how it all happens. My plan is to go with this for a while and learn as much as I can along the way. I have this idea which I don't know if it is viable or not so here goes. For those of you who have read my ot
  8. Hi Folks, I’m after a bit of advice here regarding getting started in property investment. So I’m still currently learning as much as I possibly can about real estate so sorry if I come across like a novice as I pretty much am, I have my future set on being a long term investor it’s what I’ve always had an ambition for, and now’s the time to start! Now I’m pretty young in the scale of things at 22, me and my partner are close to getting a mortgage on our first home. Once we are settled we want to start work on investing. We will have a total of roughly 20k saved dedicated for inves
  9. Hi Folks, 20k isn't a lot I know, Me and my partner have been saving for a long time, we'll have more in a few years. What would you do with this money if it's all you had? How can I build my capital in the quickest way? Thanks Guys! Brian.
  10. Hi guy's, I have a total of £15K in a current account paying 3% interest. With Inflation at 1.8%, I am looking at a return of just 1.2%. I am really keen to invest in a buy to let property and as an Architect feel that I have sufficient knowledge to choose the right property. However, I am aware that £15K isn't a great deal of capital but am keen to make the most of it. At 75% loan to value, this means a property with a value of £60K. In Galashiels (Scottish Borders), where I work, £65K will buy you a 1 or 2 bed flat. We do have the ability to increase this amount by between £300 and
