  1. Hiya, I am London based and started a while ago to focus on Leeds as my investment area. I have bought my first BTL in York about a yar ago and now looking to do student HMO's in Leeds around Headingley. It is article 4 yes, and while one does pay a bit of a premium for that you also get piece of mind of not having to worry about future competition (new HMOs pop up left right and centre these days) and a very low amount voids. So I don’t think it’s all bad. Also from deals i am finding, the number still stack up quite well (i.e. 15% ROI in a ltd with full mgmt.) Anyway, I started talking
  2. Hi everyone, I'm new to the hub and the world of property investment. I have lived on the Isle of Man for the last year, but will shortly be moving back to the UK (Manchester) in October to take up a new job and start my property investment journey! I'm trying to determine my strategy and would appreciate peoples thoughts. I've outlined my objectives, circumstances and available capital herein... Objective Create circa £5k monthly net income (before tax) from property within the next 5 years Circumstances and Available Capital/Equity I own a flat in South Man
  3. Hi, Has anyone had any experience on refinancing from a single occupancy dwelling into a HMO? The plan simply is to turn a single occupancy property into a HMO and pull the money out after a period of time to do the same. The deal would be done through a LTD company, so if there's any further advice to add to this situation it will be gratefully received. TIA Mike
  4. What advice would you give for someone looking to get into HMO's to begin with? Lucky enough to be at a young age (17) and would greatly appreciate any advice that can be given from anyone who has had or currently owns HMO's and what would they do differently if they were to start again/ what mistakes to avoid if possible. Thanks
  5. Hello to all, I'm Iain Large, Along with my business partner in Dubai, we have two 3 bed's and one 9 bed HMO in Chelmsford (our preferred area of interest) through Connection Investments Limited formed in 2013 when we decided to start investing together again after a lucky previous exit in 2008! Having let the business tick away for the last 5 years it's now full speed ahead! With space to build a couple of two beds in Chelmsford on different sites we formed Connection Construction Limited with a builder we've known for many years. Under our Co
  6. We have set up our Limited Company this month, it will do flips (to expand the investment pot) and later on it will start to buying-refurbishing-managing HMOs. We are in need of an accountant and would prefer one that also invest in property. Does anyone know one preferably based in London?
  7. Hi guys, Anyone got any experience or advice for successfully investing in HMOs in a different city? I'm based in London and am looking to invest up North (more affordable). Thanks
  8. Hi, I am new to the property investment game. Looking to flip properties in the Leicestershire area, buying at 100 -125k and then potentially trying my hand at HMOs. Would like to build some contacts around this area as well as hopefully receiving some of your expert knowledge on flipping and HMOs in this price region. Thanks Graham
  9. Hi all, I’m Drew, I’m introducing myself as a newbie here. I’ve been listening to all the podcasts, reading the magazines and looking forward to attending the meet ups. I’m living in SE London and am a landlady with a small portfolio of single lets in Cardiff. I’ve also just completed a 3 bed 2 bath refurb which I’m selling to buy my own home in S/SE London. I used to own and manage a portfolio of properties with my ex-husband and we had efficient systems in place with no void periods and increasing rents. We had lots of happy tenants - integrity, good quality homes and te
  10. Listen to the latest podcast here: http://thepropertypodcast.com/2016/06/tpp170-how-to-make-hmos-work-for-you/ Many investors are drawn to HMOs by their seemingly high returns, but then deterred (us included) by the amount of work they seem to involve. And there’s no getting away from it: HMOs are more effort than your standard single let. Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to boost your chances of making HMOs work for you – including some handy “HMO hacks” to automate or delegate a hefty portion of the management. This week R&R talk about: How to identify a suitable HMO locati
  11. Hi! I’m Steve. I’m a full time landlord (but only work part time if that makes sense) and predominantly own and manage my house shares. I rented my first rooms out in my own house in 1997, but being young and a little slow, it took me to 2003 to realise I loved doing it and just as importantly, could monetise it! After reading Rich Dad Poor Dad and The 7 Habits, I was able to replace my earned income (about £100pcm) in 4 months so went part time and quite my job a year later. I’ve built my portfolio up to 105 rental units since then (across 28 properties). I hand pick a
  12. Hello all - I have been a quiet member of the property hub for quite some time. I have certainly underused this networking opportunity.... the reasons for my silence are possibly because I'm a bit shy, I feel I may not be experienced enough to have a voice and I am also time poor with 3 young children!!! I need to break out of my comfort zone and start making connections so that I can speed up my learning... and actions!! I am using the questions that Rob suggests for the introduction... so here it goes: Q.What I have done in property so far?I have one vacation rental property in
  13. Hello, Can anyone recommend a good letting agent in Edinburgh who deal with letting HMOs to students? Thanks! Fiona
  14. Hi everyone, I am brand new to the forum and it is great to 'meet' you all. My husband and I are looking into our first investment property in Brighton and we are considering either an HMO or a 1 bed flat buy to let (or two). My main question relating to HMOs in Brighton - have we missed the boat for this year? I assume HMOs mainly caters for the student market and this tends to rotate on an annual basis. Thanks in advance for any insight. Ruth
