  1. Hi there, we are looking to purchase a buy-to-let in Glasgow. My partner is from there and his sons live there. We have a few buy-to-lets in Nottingham, but our broker does not understand the Scottish system and the lenders he uses with don't work with freehold flats - this is much more common in Scotland than it is down south where flats tend to be leasehold. Can anyone recommend a broker in Glasgow? Thanks in advance, any help would be much appreciated.
  2. Hi all Planning to invest in a BTL in Birmingham soon. Please can you share your recommendation(s) for letting/property management agency(s) in Birmingham? Preferably a local business/boutique/family run agency, working with BTLs. If you recommend a chain, the name of a particular agent would be appreciated (if you would rather message privately, please let me know). Any recommendations on ones to avoid welcomed too. Thanks and good day Richard
  3. Hi all, Reaching out to the community as I am in need of a reliable Housekeeping Company for my Serviced Accommodation business based in Southmead/ Westbury-on-Trym area of Bristol. No one man bands please as I need flexibility and reliable cover if one person can't make it for whatever reason and needs to be able and willing to do bed changes, inventory checks etc.... Thanks in advance David
  4. Hi, can anyone recommend any courses/podcasts/audiobooks/forums etc for new business start up? I have a few ideas which I’m starting with but would really appreciate some guidance, I’ve read e myth but need some more. I follow the disruptive entrepreneur but I’ve found Rob Moore/progressive very much about selling the expensive courses which I just can’t justify at the moment. Don’t mind paying a bit for good courses but £3-5k for a couple of days is out of my reach atm. Any tips, recommendations all greatly appreciated
  5. Hi All, I am hoping for some recommendations for a Ltd company mortgage broker in the Cardiff or Caerphilly area (if anyone has any)? Thank you!
  6. Looking for recommendations for a good plumber and electricians (ideally both in one) in south London (Clapham/ Tooting area) I need the following looked at: - under the sink pipes re-worked and re-fitted - plumbing a dishwasher - wiring into the mains a dishwasher - fixing outside lights (wiring) - fixing ceiling lights (wiring) Any recommendations would be amazing!! Cheers Phil
  7. Hi My first BTL in Bristol (St Annes Park) is coming up for relet. My lovely long-standing tenant of 15 years is retiring and moving in with his family. Since it's so long since I've done anything down there (tenant has always been happy with flat and always declined the offer of decorating etc), I have no network and would really appreciate any recommendations for: painter and decorator carpet supplier (someone to measure up, remove old carpet and fit new ones) letting agent I did have a good letting agent in the area and they're still active but they 'lost' my tenant's deposit and never protected it after the legislation change since it was all so long ago. They eventually registered it when I proved they'd retained it! All advice gratefully received! Daryl
  8. Hi there, I am just starting out on acquiring a BTL property portfolio, with a plan to buy 2 properties (in Glasgow) over the next 6 months & a further 2 or 3 over the next year or so. I am keen to ensure I am set up in the best possible way before I get started (possibly as a limited company?) & so am hoping to get some recommendations on any Scottish based (I live in Edinburgh) BTL tax advisers. Rita4rent has been suggested to me by one of the letting companies I have visited, but Id be grateful if anyone here has had any positive personal experiences, which they would be happy to share. Thank you!
  9. Hi there, I'm hoping to get a recommendation or two for a quality & reliable mortgage broker - ideally based in Edinburgh (but would also consider any other Scottish recommendations). Anyone have personal experience which they are willing to share? Much appreciated :-)
  10. Hi Everyone I've had an offer accepted on a flat in Norwich. Does anyone have recommendations for solicitors in the area? Thanks for your suggestions regards, Chris
  11. We've given out plenty of book recommenations on the podcast - now I'm looking for yours in return! If you've read anything good recently (property/finance related or not) please let me know so I can fill up my Amazon wishlist To get the ball rolling, I've just read: "How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World" by Harry Browne - it was written in 1976, but the ideas are still totally relevant today (except maybe the bits about phonograph records). I think its pragmatic philosophy will appeal to investors a lot. "Rubicon" by Tom Holland - a history of the Roman Republic which doesn't feel like a history book at all Your turn!
  12. Hi everyone, I did some viewings in Woolwich (South East London), over the weekend, thinking they would be just for research but unexpectedly found a good option & made an offer! I'm now (hurriedly) looking for a recommendation of a good solicitor that people have used, preferably a lot, to buy properties in the London market. This particular property is actually for me to live in myself, so a owner-occupier mortgage, but I don't think that will make much difference as far as choice of solicitor. Any advice anyone is able to give would be hugely appreciated! All the best, Emily
  13. Hello Fellow Hubbers, I am looking to change a building management company who currently manage a block of flats where I own one of them. The other flat owners are in agreement with me and I am now on the task to find a better management company for us to work with, but this is proving harder than I thought. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for building management companies based in the south of England (ideally Surrey) and can pass on their details? Thanks in advance. Russ
  14. Hello to everyone I'm new to the hub having discovered the podcast six weeks ago (just caught up with all the episodes!) I've been educating myself for the last couple of months and I'm now ready to act. Viewed 2 properties over the Christmas period and another 2 booked over the weekend. We're looking to invest locally initially, in the Bolton area (about 20 mins from Manchester). I'm fast approaching 50 and having spent too much time looking at all sorts of investments and sitting on cash I've finally been persuaded of the merits of property and am ready to start the real education. If anyone in the hub has any local recommendations for professionals please let me know. PS A big thanks to the 2 Robs for making the difference. Paul
