Hello My parents currently have a BTL property, value of £375-400k with no mortgage, yielding £15k gross per annum. They have pension income of approx. £40k on top of this.

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
Hello Property Hubbers, My name’s Tom and I am a first time poster on here. I am hoping to get in touch with a few people who may be able to help / get involved in a project I’m looking to start in the Spring next year. I bought a house in Croydon last year and with it came a small strip of land (circa 20m x 5m). As it’s in a relatively built-up area I went to a pre-planning meeting with the Council earlier this year to discuss viability of building on the plot. The outcome was essentially positive in that the planners are happy with us building a property there (in pri
