  1. Good afternoon, I hope you don't mind me reaching out for some advice. First time investor here so please go easy on me I have around £100k to invest in a cash purchase but I'm still unsure whether to go for a property of around £100k and recycle the money 6 months later with a BTL mortgage or to buy two smaller 2 bed BTL properties worth a much lower price "up North". I am interested in the following (BMV?) deal in Burnley BB11 as a cash purchase with a view to mortgage it at 75% at the earliest possible stage. Comparable sales (2019/2020) in the area were between £97.5k - £11
  2. 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?
  3. Hi! If I buy a BTL as a first time buyer (of any property ever) and then I later purchase a home for me to live in (without selling the buy to let), will I be liable for the higher rate of SDLT? The reason I ask is I have read that you avoid the higher rate of SDLT on your home if it's your main residence and is replacing a former main residence sold within the previous three years. Obviously in my scenario, I would not be replacing a former main residence as I don't have one to replace! I do have reasons for buying the BTL first. Doe
  4. Hi all im looking at buying my first investment property in Liverpool. I’m unsure about my strategy- whether to buy a flat off plan in the city centre or just go for. 3 bed already built house a bit further out? im looking for long term growth but a yield that will cover my costs with a bit of a profit. it seems that there are some financial benefit to buy off plan but given the covid situation I’m worried about completion dates/ if at all/ and it seems there are so many extra costs here and there that I feel it’s quite complicated...( ground rent, service charge, fur
  5. Hey all, By way of introduction my name is Indy - recently stumbled across the property hub podcast and have been addicted since - listening throughout lockdown with most episodes repeating throughout the day. i recently was fortunate enough to purchase my first property that I currently live in . Starting at zero again and putting my goals and strategy onto paper I have come to a road bump - I need some advice / guidance if anyone could be so kind ; My aim is to save as hard as I can , possibly a grand a month for 2/3 years , in that time I would have built some equity to
  6. Hello Everybody. I'm Denis from Ireland and have just gone sale agreed on my first BTL property in Belfast. Just wondering is there anyone else from the Northern Ireland area either a beginner or more experienced investor who would like to meet up and share experiences/knowledge etc. Thanks Denis
  7. Hi all, I am contemplating my first buy-to-let investment and I am wondering if I should be targeting a city flat to or a bigger 3 to 4 bedroom family home with garden. I am thinking about investing in Birmingham or one of the other midlands or northern investment areas recommended by Property Hub. Which property type would you chose and why? Thank you. Barry.
  8. Good morning guys and girls I recently bought my council house with my mum through the right to buy scheme. Paid £199k house is worth 310k. I have 30k In saving which was originally for my first house until we decided to buy this one. I now want to buy a house cash (my mortgage is 1k a month so don’t want a btl mortgage aswell ideally) . My plan is to buy a 2 bed terraced in Grimsby for 34k and rent it out give it 6months then get a 100% remortgage and buy another and get 2 streams of rental income and have only 1 remortgage to pay (still paying residential obviously) . However talki
  9. Hi there - first time buyer here looking to begin a BTL portfolio (as a limited company) without buying a main residence first (plenty of detail as to why in the 'Newbie' section!). The main issue mortgage-wise appears to be access to the best rates as a FTB and first time landlord, as a SPV. Question: If I was to purchase a property with cash (via an SPV), let it out, then 'remortgage' (unencumbered remortgage?) after 6 months to release 60% the equity, would this effectively leave me in the same position as getting a 60% LTV mortgage at point of purchase, but open up more (and cheaper)
  10. Hi all - nice to meet you via the forum. I’m Whitney and I’m based on London. I have 10 months left of my maternity leave and now have the opportunity dedicate time to put together a long term strategy on starting a limited company in property business. A bit of context: Seven years ago a relative asked for advise on how to get young professionals (like myself) interested in their rental property. On visiting, I advise him to renovate the property so it would appeal to his desired tenant. Surprisingly he asked me to run the project and then fill it with tenants. Six months late
  11. Hi All, I could do with some advice on how to get started on my property investment journey. I am 21 years old, still living at home in North Manchester with my parents and trying to figure out the best way to purchase my first house and a BTL property. I don't have a huge budget to work with so I am trying the make the money I have go further. I don't want to use the money I do have to just buy my first house and then all my wage's go towards paying the mortgage off and not be able to save a penny for my first BTL. The idea I currently have is to purchase a 2/3 bed semi detached hou
  12. My mother owns her own home outright which is worth about 110K. We are looking to invest in BTL together and have 60K capital between us; how do we go about releasing the equity in my mother's home so we can use the capital to cash-purchase a BTL property? Any advice greatly appreciated!
  13. Hi, My name's Rob and after buying my own house to live in, I'm now moving onto BTL. I've got experience in setting up a business, so am comfortable with that side of things and with all the information on this site alone, my education is rapidly increasing. Where I'm looking for a bit of a safety net as such is a checklist by which a new landlord can cover off a first BTL. The purchasing process I'm fine with, it's the actual letting. I have sourced a good agent who is assisting, but would appreciate input from the forum. It's going to be a HMO so I know I need to ensure the proper
  14. 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
  15. Hello All! Over 2019, my partner and I have been educating ourselves about property and all the ins-and-outs of BTL. We have managed to save £30k, and now we need to take the leap of faith and actually start DOING some investment!! I'm the kind of person who has to have a clear plan of action, and I'm really struggling to nail down the process to purchasing our first BTL. After many discussions and considerations, we have decided that buying property as an SPV Ltd company will be the best option for us (both in terms of tax implications, and long-term goals). We would be so grat
  16. Hi all, I am in discussions to purchase a property which my partner and I intend to move into. The house is relatively small, although plenty big enough for us at the moment, and for the foreseeable. The property needs some work done. I estimate the property will cost 95k with 15k of work to be done, and I'd expect the property to be worth 135k at the most with the remodel. I live in an area where serviced accommodation works quite well and a rental would probably return 500-550. Does anyone have any advice or guidance on purchasing a property with the short term intention
  17. I am a newbie to property investment, I don't currently own my own home (Living with parents) and want to invest in property. I currently have 40K in my savings. As far as i'm aware, I'm unlikely to be able to get a BTL mortgage as you I will need to get a residential mortgage first? I want to know whether I should get a residential mortgage on my first property then wait out 2 years before I remortgage to a BTL mortgage? Is there another way around this? My aim is to build up cash flow and my portfolio over a few years through remortgaging and releasing equity to purchase additional
  18. Hi i want to purchase my first BTL property. I spoke with a mortgage broker and he said i will be best of waiting till i am 21 due to lack of lenders, my income is terrible but i have the deposit and my mother has a house she owns and will go guarantor, her income also isn't great around 14k a year. I am hoping the owning of a house may improve the situation... Will it? (My mothers house is around 240k and the house i am looking at for my first BTL purchase is around 60, i don't know if this makes a difference) Any help? or good mortgage broker suggestions? Thanks a bunch in advance.

  21. Hi there guys, I am new to property investing and wanted to introduce myself to the Property Hub community! A bit of background, I've always been interested in property but it has been from a far as the large capital start up costs have always been a barrier to entry, I live in the Greater London area. Having just bought my own house earlier this year with my fiancé I've spent the last few months educating myself and trying to learn from others experiences within the community - after the wedding next year has been paid for I can start looking to use my cash flow to inves

  23. Hi, I've just bought my first BTL and whilst I'm waiting for everything to go through I thought I'd get my record keeping strategy sorted. I was thinking of setting up a seperate bank account and then using a spreadsheet to log everything. I love spreadsheets and would like to make a fancy one with lots of macros that does all sorts of clever reports, making tax returns and cash flow predictions very easy. However, I need some inspiration to get me started. Does anyone have a template they wouldn't mind sharing? Or does anyone know exactly what things this spreadsheet needs to r
