  1. Hi All, I am interested in investing in Hull, but wanted to get a gauge of the areas to avoid or focus on. Goal is to purchase a single btl aimed at the professional market. I will be taking a wonder around the city in the coming weeks but wanted to gain some local area insight. Thanks in advance! Steve
  2. Pleased to meet everyone, below is my introduction (following Rob D’s best-practices), So far in property I have been accidental landlord for about 7 years after moving into my partners home. Following my father’s death in 2017, I sold the South London rental flat to retain a family house and support my mother’s care home costs. My mother had mixed dementia and sadly passed away last December (2019). The family house I jointly owned with my mother has remained dormant since she entered a care home in 2017 – anyone who is familiar with the UK social care system in respect to dementia may appreciate the reasons why it has been difficult to make use of the property. The house I have inherited is in Kingston Upon Hull. I like the idea of investing in Yorkshire, which is good as it seems to be priced about right, however, I am based and work around London. My plan for 2020 is to have one property that I own, in good repair and not too leveraged. This will be a property I can move into myself in due-course, should the need arise, and will otherwise be rented out to pay for upkeep and to provide an income – this may well be the inherited family house which is in need of considerable renovation. If this goes well, in the future, I intend to invest in a second leveraged rental property. I work as a commercial artist developing information/educational and entertainment interactive-products and games, including for virtual and mixed reality. These skills may be of use to other members, and I am always open to discussing new projects. I don’t mind talking about my experience regarding finance/property-ownership and a relative with dementia. I will initially be looking for feedback on owning rental property in Hull, and about budgeting and managing renovation work. Thank you for taking the time to read
  3. Hi, My name is Steve and I've been an active subscriber of all things property hub for the past few years. I have always been interested in property and earlier this year decided to take the plunge full time to focus on my passion - leaving behind a decent career in construction. I live in Leeds but my focus and business activities are in Hull, East Yorkshire and I'm interested in discussing the market with anyone with an interest in the area. I'd love to speak to new investors who are interested in making the jump themselves, experienced investors with interesting challenges as well as anyone in between who just shares a passion for all things property. I am currently in the process of building my business so always happy to share my experiences and learn from others! Looking forward to hearing from anyone who wants to chat about Yorks, the Humber, and Hull. Speak soon Steve
  4. Hi All. I am a newbie investor from London. I have been looking at Hull as a potential location for my first BTL. The property I am looking at is already tenanted (terraced house) which has been split into two one bedroom flats. The yields seem pretty good. My first question is, as it is 2 flats would I have to pay 2 sets of fee's for this? (solicitors, stamp duty etc) Secondly I wanted a recommendation on any mortgage brokers anyone may have used. Would also be great to get talking to other investors in Hull to learn more about their experiences within the City. Thanks in advance Naj
  5. Hello lovely people! This forum has been such a useful find! I've learnt so much scouring through all the posts and I'm so glad to have found the podcast! My partner and I are intending to visit the North and hope that you guys can recommend any sourcing agents/estate agents in the Northern areas such as Glasgow, Hull, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham & Crewe as we will be investing remotely. Please feel free to comment or email me at sh.propportunity@gmail.com for a chat! Thank you so much! Cheers SH
  6. Hi all. I am looking for a solicitor for a property I want to buy in Hull. Would be great if I can get a recommendation for one who is tried and tested. Thanks in advance
  7. Hi James Kelly of York here. I am currently looking for bridging finance brokers - preferably in the north but not essential - tradesmen & letting agents in these areas, if you are one or know any please get in touch. I have been religiously following all things Property Hub related for the last 18 months whilst planning my first steps. Began whilst looking to buy my first house with my wife. We have now bought and refurbed our own home and are looking to invest in BTL in Leeds, Sheffield, York, Hull area whilst also doing other flip projects to recycle our initial capital. I work in sales and have been able to use my negotiating and project management skills to complete our refurb on budget and time, I intend to maximise this in future projects. I am of course happy to help in anyway I can in return. Best James
  8. Hi there, I'm looking for a specialist property tax advisor in Hull or the surrounding area. Thanks in advance for your help!
  9. Hi there, I'm looking to speak to people who have started property portfolios in the North of England. I'm from Hull originally and still regularly go back there because my family are still there. I'm interested in that area but also the rest of Yorkshire and the North West. I'm in the process of trying to work out which strategy would be best for me as I live in London but I'm ready and able to invest in 2 to 3 properties in the next 12 - 18 months. I'm particularly interested in speaking to people who have done refurbs, HMOs, multiple property portfolios, investing in areas they don't live in, or all of the above. Thanks in advance!

  11. Hi all. I am looking to buy my first property (exciting times). I have found something I really like. I was wondering if anyone had any mortgage brokers they can recommend me in Hull. Would be great if I can get contact details of someone who is tried and tested. Thanks
  12. Hi there, I'm new to property investment. I've been researching for a while and decided I will start with basic single lets, 2 -3 bed apartments or houses. I also think that I do not necessarily need to invest near to where I live, which is the West Midlands. Although I'm still looking into the area, and haven't ruled it out. I keep getting drawn back to Hull and interested in some local information about the area. As it's won the UK city of culture 2017 I'm hoping this might have the same effect as it did in Liverpool a few years ago with investment looking promising. The house prices seem reasonable and the rent, although obviously low for some parts of the city, do seem to yield OK for the cost of each property. I am however a little concerned about the demand versus supply in the area. Does anyone who already invests in Hull have any advice please? Areas to avoid or to aim for, type of property to target etc. Regards Martin
  13. Hi everybody and a big hello from Paris! I recently joined the world of property investment. The advantage of being "green" is that I don't have any bad habits to unlearn and I am 200% teachable. I have decided to jump straight into HMOs and multilets, my target areas are quite vast: South Wales, Wiltshire, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Hull (for now!). I am looking into a property in Wales and it is stated that the Leasehold tenure is "99 years from 4 April 2003". My question is: using that information, how do I calculate how many years are left on the lease? From what I understood in my training, 70 years left on a leasehold is short, so it's important to know this basic information. Don't laugh, told you I was green! Thanks in advance to all who will read/reply to this post. Cheers! Katherine
  14. Hello all, my name is James and i am a new investor in Hull looking to build my team to begin my investment journey at the start of the new year. I am working through a limited company which i have just registered as i do not intend to touch my portfolios profits until retirement from work. i am new to the property investment networking circle but have booked my place on my local PIN meeting in Hull. But i am looking for any referrals on independent mortgage brokers and property specialist accounts in the local area. If you or anybody you know has used or are using any body they would recommend i would love your referrals to speak to them about moving forward. Or similarly if you, yourself are an independent mortgage broker or accountant i would love to have a chat. Many thanks for any help, James.
