  1. Hi everyone, I am in the process of purchasing 25% of a shared ownership flat and 2 of my mortgages applications (barclays and halifax) have now been declined for the same reasons : "they won't lend on the property as its an investment-led development property - It appears lenders are not liking the property due to the surrounding of the property and the development appears to be aimed at investors" Could someone explain to me why is this a problem for the lenders? surely that will not affect my capacity to repay my mortgage, and being a shared ownership, i would
  2. Evening all Chris here, a UK expat in HK. I’ve got a few properties in the U.K. (mainly London at the moment but exploring options back home in my Northern homeland). I am looking to kick on with my investments to move away from my current career into property full time within c5 years. Keen to be connected to fellow HK investors to build my network, share ideas and explore collaboration opportunities. Look forward to hearing from you! Cheers Chris
  3. Hi, I'm currently in the process of setting up up my rent2rent business, specifically HMO management. I have recently come across a few deals in manchester. All are 6 bedroom 3 story properties. After doing the dudilligance, I calculated that they all generate a cash flow of atleast £3000 and a profit of no less than £600. Unfortunately I do not have significant funds to pay for the set up costs. As a result am looking for a joint venture partner. Please get in touch if you are interested
  4. Hello everyone! Let me introduce myself, my name is Jordan. My brother and I have recently decided to get into property investing, creating a Ltd company called Best Step Property Ltd and buying our first buy to let. After both being made redundant in 2019 we decided to work on a plan together to help us put our future in our own hands, rather than someone else's. We decided to step into property after around 6 months of researching, reading books, listening to podcasts and speaking to friends already on their property journey's. After months of saving we are at a poi
  5. Hi everyone, hope you're all well. Seeing as though the lockdown has started to ease and more viewings, surveys are starting to pick up pace I thought I'd post a few links to the former mill conversion properties that will be coming onto the market over the coming years. These apartments will help change the face of Stockport as a place to live and work, there has already been massive investment in the last couple of years with new infrastructure, leisure and living space and with lots more planned this is great place to look at for your long term investment plans https://www
  6. Hello Property Hub! Firstly I have to say I’m blown away with all of the content and knowledge sharing on here. I stumbled across Property Hub a couple of a weeks ago and my world and plans have completely changed. With that said I’m new to property and I’m looking to build a network in order to start investing over the next 6 months. I’m currently based on the south coast, channel island and London and I plan to invest up north. Liverpool - Manchester - Sheffield etc. but I’m very much an open book and not set on any particular location. My initial thoughts are BTL but aga
  7. Hello everyone My name is Mike and im based in Liverpool looking to connect with investors and deal sourcers. Im on the road to getting fully compliant and wanting to source properties for investors who want to invest in the North West for a reduced sourcing fee as im just starting out, and a testimonial which would be very beneficial to me. Eventually I want to invest in property myself when i have a bit more capital behind me and gain some more experience. I have created deal packs/brochures on houses with property comparables, rental demand, sold house history, ROI, Net yield, Gross Yi
  8. Dear Property Hub Community I am a first time investor in Portugal, in Lisbon and I wanted to know from anyone with experience with long term lets and knowledge of property managers in the area. Can anyone recommend a good company experienced with long term lets in Lisbon/Portugal? From the majority that I have spoken with the service reviews seem to be mixed at best. I would be very grateful for anyone to come forward with a recommendation or lead to finding a good property manager in the area and/or any advice on pitfalls to watch out for when choosing one! Many thanks fo
  9. We are running a one off event this week to allow some of our more seasoned investors to share their journey and learnings from early beginnings through to seasoned observations of what they would do differently. Of of course it will also provide an opportunity to network and discuss the investing scene here in the vibrant and busy Nottingham. Further details from: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/nottingham-property-circle-investor-experience-tickets-59026406571
  10. 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
  11. Hiya, I’ve secured some investment from a family member, but need a legal agreement drawn up. I’ve approached conveyancing solicitors I’ve used in the past, but no response yet. I was wondering if any one on here had any recommendations for a good solicitor that they’ve used for something similar? please let me know! Thank you!
  12. Hello everyone I have been investing in property for about 5 years now - mainly in Liverpool but with experience in Manchester and Cheshire. Also run a specialist lettings and management business just for professional HMOs in those same areas on a selective basis. Selective means we choose carefully which landlords and properties we work with as there are many poor quality HMOs out there that people expect us to work miracles with. I am no magician. Here to continue learning and to connect with like-minded people. Also happy to offer advice from my experience whenever it might
  13. Hi All, My name is Tyrone and I am new to the Forum. I am looking to invest in a Buy-to-Let in Telford by the end of this year. Can anyone recommend a decent letting agency who could manage the property for me? I am looking for either fully managed or collecting rent and repairs. Many Thanks, Tyrone
  14. Hi All My name is Jonathan and i'm a first time buyer. Although i've been living in London for almost 9 years, london i thought that it was about time that i'll set out some plans to get a property for investment up north. it seems that i'm getting a bit of the 'analysis paralysis" syndrome as the more i read the less im sure about an area. for example, opening zoopla / rightmove on both rental to check the supply, quality and prices against the asking prices in Manchester for example it's hard not to notice that in many areas such as M14 there are an incredible amounts of prope
  15. Hi Everyone, I have made the decision to travel up to Leeds next weekend to carry out some viewings on property up to about £110,000. Only have 1 day and i want to make the most of the trip to get a feel and understanding of what and where is good new for a B2L and i don't want to waste any time doing it. can anyone advise me on some particular B2L hotspots in Leeds that i should make sure i go and see? I am split between going for a 1 or 2 bed apartment or a 2 bed terraced house that needs some TLC. any advise would be really welcome.
  16. Hi all Been a subscriber to the podcast for years (keep up the great work Robs) - just signed up to the forum and here is a quick intro. We have a portfolio of properties (BTL and HMO) in London that we have built over the years - now looking to evaluate flip opportunities in England - and maybe R2R / R2SA (cash flow) Our current thinking is to Finance the purchase of properties for <250K in hotspots in the UK, adding value and flipping for a Net Profit of 30K min - building up to 3-4 a year in year 2/3- willing to partner with someone who can bring the expertise of sourcing
  17. I have been thinking of investing my money in Manchester but don't fancy the travel. My question to you all would be would have you ever purchased a buy to let (or anything) without physically seeing it? if Yes what did it take to make you feel easy doing it? If No, Why? Thanks!
  18. Hi, My name is Dan. I have recently started a ltd company and am looking for recommendations for sourcing companies, investors and bridging finance companies. For the experienced investors... - what would you do differently knowing what you know now? And That you wish you was aware of when you started your journey? Thanks in advance Dan

  20. Hi I'm Laura and I'm new to the Property Hub. I've been training in property for about 18 months with my mentor (my background is in project management). I wondered if anyone had any good tips on how to find JV partners. I've been attending a lot of property and business networking events but so far haven't found anyone to work with. I've secured a piece of land using a purchase option and am currently applying for planning permission. If all goes to plan I'll need a JV partner in approximately 6 months time. Any tips anyone can provide
  21. Hi everyone, My name is Rob and it would be great if you can offer some advice on my proposed joint venture. I have attached an investor pack that summarises the joint venture and at this point just provides a brief overview. What would be great is if you can critique the proposed offer using your experiences? e.g. does it sound interesting? plausible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Rob McCarthy
  22. Hello, I have been observing the Property Hub a while now and can see the potential of finally joining in. After having gained experiences with redeveloping and refurbishing properties in the London market I now have a small portfolio of my own. Now I would like to expand into other cities such as Nottingham and Manchester. My goal is to buy several 2-3 bedroom BTL and maybe even join venture on a development project in Nottingham. I have a build up a small team that can take on any building process and have some more contacts in Nottingham and London. If y
  23. I currently have one residential mortgage but I would like to purchase another property to renovate and sell for a quick profit. Last year I decided to do some travelling and I am currently working a ski season in Europe. I rented out my house before I went travelling so the repayments are taking care of themselves (and I plan on leaving it that way). I will be returning to the UK in April and would like to invest in another property, but to buy and sell rather than rent out. I am a general builder by trade so (other than gas and electric) I can do most of the work myself.
  24. Hello, Everyone. I am new to property investing, I thought about this idea for years, never get started. I have £150k cash sitting in the bank that brings close to zero interests. It is quite a lot of money, I wanted to use this to invest in and around London, but the money just doesn't seem to be enough. I thought about going further up north, where it is cheaper to buy, but then I will be going to north often. I don't know if that is practical.
  25. Hi, I'm new to property investing and would appreciate some advice, accidentally fell into property 9 years ago not knowing anything, I have two joint mortgages (1 btl and 1 residential which my mum resides in, mortgage term ends in 6years). Sold another property in 2013 (didn't reinvest). I am currently renting where I live now in London (2 bed maisonette) and in Sept would renew the rental contract, I approached the managing agent to ask if the landlord would be interested in selling or proposed a rent to buy option over the next 1-2 years. The next day the agent called and came
