  1. Hi all, I am looking for my first investment property in London with the goal of seeing a steady amount of capital growth and 3%ish yields over the next 3 years. I have decided to focus on houses given the supply and demand. I have a budget of £410k so I am limited to 2/3 bed terraced houses in areas such as Newham, Barking, Woolwich, Croydon and the likes. I currently live in Fulham, so as you can imagine, I am struggling to separate my emotions and let go of my opinions about these areas and see the potential given the amount of regenerative investment. Given the current re
  2. Hi all, Huge fan of the community. I'm approaching my first remortgage on my first property (residential). I'm looking to refinance after rennovating it over the past two years to get my first BTL. Exciting times. My original broker was not great, can someone recommend a broker to work with? A BTL specialist as I would like one broker to support me to build a portfolio. Sorry for the rookie question. There are just so many options online and everyone always says how important good brokers, just not where to find them! Many thanks
  3. Hi, I found the podcast during lock-down and have been listening ever since - thanks Rob and Rob. The hardest thing is finding information or advice on networking with (local) like minded people so have decided to just jump in here. Actually just completing on our first house to live in. So now want to learn more about all the other potential options and venture further into the property world. I'm currently based in London both living (South East) and working (Central). Looking for networking recommendations and to network with people in London and Kent (originally from he
  4. 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
  5. Hello there, My name is Juan, I own a property in SE London (Charlton). The property is an end of terrace (only 2 neighbors) where mine is the ground floor and I own the front garden, side return and half of the back garden. I just need to give access the upstairs neighbor to the bins and his section of the back garden. There's no service charge, the ground rent is only £50 a year and the lease for both flats is around 150 years. I was told that since the ground rent is so low and the lease is still 150 years I should approach the freehold company and offer them to buy the
  6. Good afternoon everyone, I am on my way to becoming fully compliant and want to source some properties for investors so I can build some capital in order for me to become an investor myself in the future. Are there any investors on here looking to invest in the North West area? I am based in Liverpool and have lived in and around Merseyside my whole life so i have a good understanding of the area. Please do get in touch and we can discuss things further. Kind Regards Mike
  7. Reintroducing myself, I am Jo, an ambitious woman in the world of property. I am a trained designer and qualified project manager, hoping to form a joint venture with serious and interested parties for the Manchester region over the coming months. Short term goal is to raise enough equity to start tying down equity for long term growth and gain some financial freedom prior to venturing into other opportunities. I already own a BTL property in the Manchester area which has done pretty well over the last couple years, but I am ready to start tackling some larger, challenging and shorter term pro
  8. Hi All, Given the current climate, a property investment in my mind is increasingly compelling. Ideally looking for studio in London zone 1/2/3 around ~£300k. I'm 27 and hoping to get some input from you seasonned investors, regarding my financing options. I'm currently working hard and full-time building a tech company, from which I take a tiny monthly salary of £1,700 net. I own an apartment in London outright, value is approx £800k and I have £60k currently invested in stock/crypto which I could put into a deposit. The aforementioned property is a three bed, I rent
  9. Hi everyone, My name is Marian and I have lived in London all my life. I am currently a Property Deal Sourcer with my business partner Kirielle. I find property deals in London for property investors and I will be using the funds from this to be able to invest in properties myself. I know quite a bit about HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupancy) which bring in great rental yield. I am happy to answer any HMO related questions
  10. Hi Guys, I’m pretty new to property investment and started out in back in 2016. I live in London where I built up some equity in my home so used that to get my investment journey started. I’ve attended a few property training courses, numerous seminars and networking events picking up some knowledge that I would never have been able to research on my own where I’ve met some fantastic, lifelong friends along the way. I have one BTL up in the North and will be picking up another 2 this year. I am very motivated and goal orientated but I’ve (surprisingly) lost the passion for my d
  11. Hi everybody! My husband and I are looking to get a BTL in Scotland (we have some contacts there). We're not homeowners and are wondering what's the best to do, buying through a joint personal mortgage or through a limited company. Our mortgage broker said that possibilities are very limited for us buying through a ltd, plus interest rate will be higher. Our idea is to build a small portfolio. Would it make sense to start with one property on a joint personal mortgage and see how things go? It looks that is more expensive to start with a limited company. I guess the problem would be
  12. Hi Property Hub My name is Suzannah. I provide property solutions and support by doing improvements to help maximise the value and potential of property. I have a PA background but it all started for me in property about 25 years ago when I was fortunate enough to inherit a low mortgage from my parents who were business owners and property investors in North London. I have always had in interest in property but never knew what to do with the accumulating equity of my property for many years. My second property was bought in 2013 in East London. After meeting my partner 2 years
  13. 9 months late and £590 million additional costs - How will the delay of Crossrail effect the London property market? Crossrail bosses have come under attack after it was announced the Elizabeth line will now open in autumn 2019 - 9 months later than originally planned. The service that will connect stations including Reading and Heathrow in the west all the way through to Abbey wood in the East. The delay has been put down to needing further testing and to improve railway software systems. Property owners and developers are facing another hit from an alre
  14. Hi everyone, I've just embarked on the magical world of property. I own a flat in East London that I bought to live in myself. A week from today I will be moving with my Swedish partner to Stockholm, and so I have begun the process of letting the property. I have been doing some research about this, but just at the beginning so am looking out for advice and practical tips that I can apply from a distance. Eadon
  15. Hi Everyone, I'm currently investigating what are the possibilities to invest in property. I'm not owning any property yet, I have limited resources for the initial deposit and I'm based in London. I hesitate between two options for my first property investment: - Buying my own property outside of London with a quick commute (ie Chelmsford or Milton Keynes). The positive point is that I would only need a 5% deposit and I can use the first home buyer scheme. However, I'm concerned that the property I could buy won't increase in value and building in equity will only be based o
  16. Dear Hubbers, I thought I might solicit your views on what seems to be an increasing trend. Namely, someone (often from London or the South-East) invests in BTL property in the North, which then means that money is effectively being transferred from the North - where it is arguably needed more - to the South. Of course, any modernisation undertaken in tired housing stock in the North (or anywhere else) can't be a bad thing. But the rental income is likely to be spent 200+ miles away and is not therefore helping the local economy. According to a comment on this thread ther
  17. I'm living in London and have been told to find a new place and fast. As I'm struggling to find a suitable house/apartment to move into I need some help with this. Is things such as shared ownership a good idea? I have looked more and more into the idea and it seems to be something of interest. From talking to multiple people and housing people I have come across the idea of this shared ownership. One friend even recommended places to look such as this website https://propertybooking.co.uk as they do all of that stuff. I am someone to want things done easily, can not be fussed with lengthy and
  18. Hello there I am having difficulty in deciding what the best plan is to flip and would be grateful to get people's opinions on it. My objective To flip residential properties to build a capital-base rapidly. Background I am able to devote a large % of my time to building this portfolio and have access to cheap finance (up to £750k) and plan to do this through a company. I am geographically agnostic, although having spent the last 10 years in London I know it pretty well, especially south-west London. I am new to the property developme
  19. Hey everyone, So we are Stephanie and Karen, we are new to property investing and have one investment property in South London through inheritance. So this is now the start of a big/exciting/scary journey! We have an interest in Kent particularly Swale and Medway as we know these areas, but also South London/ Croydon /Sutton as this is where we live and obviously have local knowledge. The property hub pods have been fab for me (Stephanie) as I listen on my commute to Canary Wharf and we are thinking of buying a property with Property Hub in the north and it would be
  20. Hi there, I own a property company in London with a mixture of residential & commercial property. I understand that Property companies are not exempt from inheritance tax for my kids. For 30 years I have owned the freehold and for a portion used the commercial sections of the properties for my own business. Now I'm looking to lease the commercial areas. We have 4 residential units and 2 commercial units. We also have a personal property which exceeds £1Million. I have a few questions that id be grateful for your help with. I'd like to con
  21. Hello everyone, Has anyone got any tips, opinions or comments on the best way to market and sell our small site? We’ve had some rough valuations and been told we can expect offers of over £350k. Any comments on any of these points would be appreciated! • Perhaps most importantly, auction? Or invite closed offers in a set (maybe 1 month?) timeframe? Which is likely to get us the best price for this sort of site in the current market? • If auction – any suggestions for the best firm, or any other tips? What sort of fees should we expect? • If closed offers – advertise it and deal wit
  22. Hello all I hope you are all well. I have a dilemma and not a bad one I guess. I have a three bed flat in South London which I rent out. It makes a decent yield but not as good as my properties in Birmingham. My dilemma is, do I keep my south London flat and wait for the next boom or continue to rent out. Or sell now and buy two properties in Birmingham which will more than double my income compared to the south London one. The thing is, the London property will always rent well and have good captial growth but I feel Birimingham is a
  23. Hi, i'm a fairly experienced landlord of 38 years from London. I have been offering a house or apartment to rent for most of that time, usually my own while away working overseas. Currently, i have a one bed apartment in London, Docklands which i bought in 2014 and i've been renting that out for the past 2 years. I self manage remotely, which is easier for apartments it must be said, especially newer ones. I'm 60 years old and retired since renting the apartment in London. After finding a tenant i decided to travel some of the world taking in S. America, Mexico, Balkans, Turkey, Caucuses
  24. Hi guys ! As I've been slightly studying the property market, I'm trying to imagine what it's going to be like in London after 15 years or so? I can hardly imagine the average house prices doubling. As from the investors point of view, the demand will always be there in order for it to build passive income. However, I can't see houses which are currently worth £300,000 being worth £500,000 or more. So for instance the rent is £1,700 that means after 15 years the rent should rise to at least £2,500 or so right? But I don't see any regular family paying such kind of money for the house. Eithe
