  1. It's no secret that leveraged property investment has been very lucrative in recent decades, but people have been made bankrupt as well, especially in 2008. I'm trying to get to grips with how people with larger portfolios sleep at night with lots of mortgage debt to their name. Let's say I have one Buy-To-Let worth £200k with £150k debt against it and it's held in an SPV with a 20% personal guarantee (PG). The most I can lose personally is 20% of debt, so £30k. This isn't too scary, unless I've spent all my money it probably won't bankrupt me and it's not an insurmountable amount of mone
  2. Hello, I have question for anyone who wants to contribute please.... How do you value a property in a 'hot' or quickly inflating market? For the last year or so, I have found it really challenging to confidently assess the value of residential property in the UK. The normal method I would use, which is mainly Rightmove/Zoopla sold prices for the street and immediately surrounding streets has started to bear very little resemblance to what properties are selling for in the current market. I started to pay more attention to the 'Under Offer' section on Rightmove to get a sens
  3. Hello, I'm looking for some advice around making offers on properties which may be suitable for conversion. I'm interested in converting commercial properties to residential but I'd also be interested in what people with purely residential development have to say. I've not bought a commercial property before and I'm wondering about the following actions and whether they would normally be conducted before making an offer or after an offer is accepted: - Appointing a planning consultant to advise on permitted development for change of use. - Appointing an architect and having them
  4. Dear Community, I'm an international first time investor who put his live savings into Student accommodation project called "Aura Liverpool". Their sales pitch was really attractive, 8% return guarantee for 5 years. My purchase (paying 50% of the value) took place on July 2018 with an intended completion date in September 2019 (and a long stop date on September 2020). Later on, they send a "project update" saying the completion will be on September 2020. And Now, due to a developer issue, they need to refinance the project and the lender is asking for all investors contracts to be r
  5. Hi Maybe I'm being negative, but what are all the downside risks (ways of losing money) from property investing? And the way to manage that risk so you lose as little as possible. Here is my list - please comment/advise! 1. Increased interest rates. Manage by making sure you are still cash flow positive even if they increase by +1% 2. Property market crash. Manage by making sure I wont need the cash that would force me to sell during a crash. 3. Reduction in rent value. Manage by working out what happens if rental income is reduced by 10% and make sure it's still cash flow po
  6. Hello, I am very new to property investment I am 40 and currently working. I have read a couple of books from Rob D already and I was thinking to implement one of the strategies in his book. Basically I want to start investing by buying 1 property (1 or 2 bed flat in say London) every 1.5 years. I will keep working during those 15 years and I will have the deposit coming from savings I made while working. After 15 years, I will end up with 10 properties and assume that property doubles in price every 9-10 years in London (and this is the big if), on average all 10 properties would
