  1. Hi everyone. My first time on any kind of forum like this, so not sure exactly how it works! I have just started a new job and a complete career change working alongside a property development manager who helps landowners develop new homes. A new avenue the company is taking is to start managing custom builds, where we would plan and develop the project from start to finish, on a fully serviced plot of land. There are a few points I need to learn on, one of which being funding for custom builds. I understand that the (eventual) homeowner can get a specialist self/custom build mortga
  2. Hi all, I've found a plot of land we are potentially going to purchase. It has full planning permission that has previously expired, so I'm in the process of going through all the documents on the planning portal. With this being our first self build, and the first time at really looking at this info in detail, it has obviously thrown up a few questions (that someone will hopefully be able to help me with!). There is a very detailed 'Design & Access statement'. This includes statements about the following : + Having a ground test to check if suitable for soakaway- and
  3. Help!! Myself and my partner currently own 2 buy to let properties as well as our residential. For years, I have had my eye on a juicy bit of unused land close to where we live. It's sort of tacked-on to a very popular residential estate, and it's just sitting there, totally overgrown and with a fence around it. Finally today I got myself in gear and did a Land Registry search and found out who owns it, and it turns out to be privately owned by a couple who live in the cottage backing onto it. They purchased it back in 2005 and are clearly not using it, so I have a cou

Hi all, I am looking for a few pointers regarding mortgages and things I should be aware of when I start to meet mortgage brokers to discuss our (potentially complicated/interesting) current situation and future plans. My girlfriend and I have a mortgage on our current home of £210k, but having renovated it and built extensions etc it is now worth around £400k. We both want to start investing in property (I am an accountant and she is a property manager for a letting agent, so we earn a reasonable wage at the moment and our skills should stand us in good stead to work with property)
  5. Enjoyed the book, thought I'd sign up to this forum and find out a bit more. I don't know everything but an happy to help where I can. Areas of interest: Development - Big rewards, big risk. Investor/B2L - Capital growth plus income - Holding 1 x Reading flat, 2 x 4 bed homes. Hope I can help out. Darren
  6. Desperately seeking a financial wizard/accountant/bookkeeper to help me prepare for my first re mortgage to release equity for a self build / BTL strategy I have a salary of £26k incl overtime, plus around £20k of self employed + rental income (commercial property sub lets, lodger and parking) I've been doing my own tax returns for years and as I'm so conditioned into maxing my expenses to pay as little tax as possible, I feel it would be wise to employ a suitable wizard with a sound understanding of the current requirements of lenders to give me the best outcome. I need to be sure what
