  1. I'm preparing to buy my first property next year, and am getting my strategy together, and want to keep really good records from the start. I'm confused about when I will start making money. Let's say I need 30k to cover the deposit, legal etc costs, renovations, insurance, all of the costs, and then after paying the mortgage I make £100 per month. In my mind I don't make a profit for 300 (plus extra yearly expenses) months, because my initial outlay was so much, but I technically would have an income of £100 more than my wage. Is it a yearly thing, like i'd make a loss in the first year and t
  2. Hello! That’s my first post and I’m looking for strategy advice. Here’s a little background to my story. Together with my wife we are planning to buy our first investment property by the end of this year. We live in Bristol and plan to buy in Liverpool a 3 bedroom house and renting rooms ideally around £400 each. We have £10k savings and we can have another 10k by November. In August we are going to remortgage our residential property releasing potentially up to £20k. Our main plan is to become financially independent as soon as possible. I earn 35k and my wife 13k with little p
  3. Hi all. I currently have 2 BTL both tenanted and doing OK. I've recently been extremely lucky to get a windfall of 129k I was working freelance but I've stopped that ATM to focus on a property strategy. I have two in mind I live up North so my goal is to initially replace an income 1600/2k will be enough for me then in 5/8 years assess any equity for refinance etc. The two strategies I'm thinking is 1) buy cash 80k ish refurb, refinance and pull as much as possible 2) buy 3 off the peg ready to rent and get the cash coming in. I know the pros to recycling
  4. Hi, I'm keen to know if any of you flippers out there have had to revise your strategy in the short to medium term with all the uncertainty around coronavirus? I was thinking about venturing into flipping in July/August and felt I had a strategy that would allow me to reinvest profits over time into BTLs. I'm now not sure it's a good idea and wonder if it's better to research and focus on a different approach. Keen to know your thoughts and plans. Best wishes, Kris
  5. Hi may name is Dal, I'm from Birmingham and am looking to begin my property investment/developer journey. I have no experience but have some skills in DIY. Im not sure which strategy to go with, interested in flips but also like the idea of buy renovate and hold. I guess I'm looking more to invest in my area, is that good or bad? In the next 5 years I'm going to have minimum 10 property portfolio but be financially free in the next 12 months. thanks for reading all. onwards and upwards Dal
  6. Hi, I hope you clever folk on here can point me in the right direction. I’m looking to get started on the properly property ladder. I have around 100k to invest in and don’t currently own a home. My initial idea is to buy a new build on the help to buy scheme in North London with my partner, only put down 5% (say 25k all in), and then a couple of months down the line use the rest of capital on a 2 BTLs in Nottingham or Sheffield, where start up costs should be around 30k each. The hope is, to generate income via the BTL to cover my mortgage payments (or some part of!), a
  7. Hey all, By way of introduction my name is Indy - recently stumbled across the property hub podcast and have been addicted since - listening throughout lockdown with most episodes repeating throughout the day. i recently was fortunate enough to purchase my first property that I currently live in . Starting at zero again and putting my goals and strategy onto paper I have come to a road bump - I need some advice / guidance if anyone could be so kind ; My aim is to save as hard as I can , possibly a grand a month for 2/3 years , in that time I would have built some equity to
  8. Hi All, I am new to property investing and looking for some general advice early on in my property journey. My sister and I have £1 million in cash to invest and would most likely look to do this through using a limited company as a SPV. We both have limited time available to dedicate to property investing - I work long hours in a full time job and my sister is looking to set up her own non-property business. Ultimate personal goal: Ensure financial freedom, so I have enough passive rental income to quit my day job and and set up my own (non-property) business. General
  9. I currently work in London as a Management Consultant, where I earn 60k a year. Over the last 4-5 months, I’ve developed an interest in Property from a desire to supplement my earnings with passive streams of income. By the end of the year, I will have £30k ish saved. I’m not interested in buying my own place, as I like/need the flexibility in renting - and so am going to start to build a Property portfolio with that money, probably start with a BRR in Liverpool, and continue to funnel money into other deals from my day job. However, I’m still very new to Property and am without any
  10. Hello All, I have been working my butt off for the last two years on flips in the South. I work a 9-5 and have carried out nearly all the work myself, so i have learnt A LOT. Luckily the flips have been really successful and I am now in the fortunate position where i am able to withdraw some of the profits from those flips to invest in BTL properties. The next step is completely new to me. I want to keep my 9-5 (for the time being) and find BTL properties up North with decent yields but i am more focused on long term growth. Two questions; should i be looking at areas
  11. Good morning guys and girls I recently bought my council house with my mum through the right to buy scheme. Paid £199k house is worth 310k. I have 30k In saving which was originally for my first house until we decided to buy this one. I now want to buy a house cash (my mortgage is 1k a month so don’t want a btl mortgage aswell ideally) . My plan is to buy a 2 bed terraced in Grimsby for 34k and rent it out give it 6months then get a 100% remortgage and buy another and get 2 streams of rental income and have only 1 remortgage to pay (still paying residential obviously) . However talki
  12. Hi All, I've been using 14days in an isolation hotel to research, educate and prioritise my investment strategy, to ensure a secure and free future. This forum has been trailed, books read and umpteen brilliant Podcasts listened to, so thanks firstly to Rob + Rob for their inspirational effort and to everyone else involved on this forum! Background: I'm a single 34yr old expat, but although I live abroad it's not essential to my job, so I now intend to move back to the UK at the end of this tax year. Seemingly a hard decision to ponder, but when taking advice and simply w
  13. Hey all, I'm in the process of planning a new venture in property development. Over the past few months I've visited properties, built myself a comprehensive budgeting spreadsheet (that factors in all purchase, finance, holding and remortgaging costs), and gathered enough data to be able to run a simulation of my intended BRR strategy. The result has been discouraging! It would appear that given my starting capital of £100k, I'll run out of funds by my third purchase. Would an experienced developer sanity-check my simulation and confirm this? If this is indeed true, what would you su
  14. Hi PropertyHubbers, I'm new here and wanted to say hi. A short summary of my situation: I'm currently living abroad and own a property on the outskirts of London. Thinking of moving back to London in the summer and weighing up possible strategies that would enable me to work part-time and focus on property investment/trading the rest of the time. There seems to be a lot of knowledgable members on here and I would be keen to listen to any advice that might help. Initially, I was thinking about focusing my time on flipping property and then reinvesting profit into BTLs (I appreci
  15. Hi all, Newbie poster here (...go easy on me). I have one property (3 bed house) that I rent 2 rooms in with consent to let from my lender (residential mortgage).I moved away with work, so rent the rooms out whilst I'm away. Consent to let was granted based on this property being my only/main residence. As a result I hope to get tax relief in the form of the Rent a Room Scheme. I will probably switch this onto a BTL when the fixed period ends, and I'll rent the entire property out. I would now like to step further into property investment. My Mum and I wish to go 50/50 on a 2
  16. Hello, I’m after some advise on my strategy. I have 2 options. I currently rent out one property and have done for 5 years. I am currently living in rented accommodation at the moment. What would be the best option without going into too much detail I have summarised the two options below: Option 1: > Continue renting out my rental property. > Continue living in rented accommodation. > Buy another investment rental property for around £100k (add money by renovating) and rent out. Option 2: > Continue renting out my rental property. > Buy
  17. Hi everyone, just looking for some advice on a strategy I'm looking to go ahead with this year. Also would like to know people's opinions on wether to go down the personal route or buy through a ltd company in my situation. So me and my dad have £50k saved to invest, we are both lower rate tax payers, my dad owns his own property that he lives in, I don't own my own property. We are both self employed. Our plan is to buy a run down property, flip it and make a profit. We plan on doing this 2 or 3 times depending on how much profit we make. We will then purchase a
  18. Hi i am currently evaluating different strategies and was wondering if anyone knows of a model to evaluate different strategies? Happy to share my thinking thanks M
  19. Hi Hubers, In the latest "TPP 324: Is buy-to-let dead?" Rob mentioned this in regards to tax changes: I would like to build my portfolio for the next 15 years from now and I would like to start tomorrow . Does it mean I should set up an LTD Company and keep buying properties via the company? If yes, then what is going to happen with all that income from these properties? Keep it on saving's account for the next 15 years ? I was thinking maybe I could employ my partner in the LTD company and she would take that income instead of me . What do you think? What are your ideas about
  20. Hello I'm a business management Graduate with a good knowledge of locations in Brighton, Guildford, Farnborough and London. I do not own property yet and I'm a newbie in the arena.

  21. Hi, First time poster here but long time member.. Here’s my current situation I own 2 apartments in Manchester City centre – one I live in and the other on CTL. Property 1 – purchased for 137k now worth 160k. Property 2 purchased for 130k now worth 140k. LTV of both is around 80% I am 27 and see myself right now in capital growth phase and want to continue expanding portfolio and keep raising deposits. Until eventually (20 years time) have around 2k profit coming in every month. I see several options to expand portfolio: Q1 - which one would likely result in
  22. Hi all, My wife and I have been interested in the idea of property investment for a number of years, however have only really started to research it properly the last 12 months. Having attended seminars, read a lot of literature and researched online, we decided to go for it at the beginning of 2019! We had £20k in savings, so having consulted a mortgage broker decided to remortgage our house and release £30k, bringing the total to £50k. Mortgage repayments have gone up, however it’s more than affordable so we feel confident with our decision. We’ve then set up a ltd company whi
  23. Hi guys, Over the past 8 years me and my partner have completed a series of refurbishments which has enabled us to build up an investment pot of £200k. We both currently live in the north east and work full-time (Neither of us are higher rate tax payers). Our goals for the next 5 to 10 years are to build a property portfolio of £1m, providing us an annual rental income of £30-50k (this is on the basis of the average net yield across the portfolio being 3-5%). Our preferred strategy to achieve this would be buy, refurbish and refinance. Essentially our plan is to buy prope
  24. Hi hubbers, I was hoping for a little bit of advice. My wife and I are currently looking to buy our 2nd BTL and we are not sure whether to buy in a Ltd company or not. We are both basic rate tax payers and can afford to buy in our personal names and not be pushed into the higher tax bracket providing we equalise our salaries (although we will be close to the 40 percent tax bracket). We are both 27 and I would like to think that in the next 3-5 years we would have had pay rises making us higher rate tax payers (myself more so as my wife is now working part-time). So my question i
  25. 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
