I'm a landlord and have a great property manager, Fiona, up in Glasgow, but I've heard many complaints in the past about other property managers. It would be great to get some feedback from UK landlords on this group to see if there's anything that can be done to improve the experience. Thanks!

Brit Abroad Starting on the Property Route
joarton_gmail_com posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHello Everyone! I'm a born-and-raised Brit who is currently living abroad and is seeking to invest in property back home... Property History In Nov '13 bought my own home (3 bed 2/3 floor ex-coucil maisonette) in SE3, London over three years ago for £170k. I bought because I needed to live in London and couldn't afford to rent. I remortgaged, in Nov '15 and now have a personal (20%LTV, fixed for 5 years, repayment over 25 years) mortgage with consent to let costing c. £625 pm. It's leasehold, with service charge and ground rent costing approx. £54 pm. Since I moved abroad I have rented for £1550 pm, through an agent (12% charge - fully managed). The property is now worth approx. £240k. Areas of investment interest One of my problems, being abroad, is that I don't have any particular place of interest. I would like what most of us want: BMV with opportunity to add value, high net yield, likely high increase in capital value. I intent to use an agent to let this property, as being abroad it's too dificult to manage/find tennants etc. Future Plans I am currently setting up a LTD Company through which to buy and invest in property. My intention is to re-mortgage the first investment house I buy once I have added value, doing the usual freeing up the money which I have invested to re-use on the next. I plan to continue with this process until I have £5k pm passive income - planning on getting there within 5-10 years. I am open to ideas about commerical conversions and have been reading up on those also - but initially I plan to start with a basic BTL. I will be back in the UK in February/March - in Kent over the 24-26 Feb weekend and South Manchester 4-10 February. If anyone with experience in starting out would be willing to meet me to help me get started over a coffee or some lunch, please do get in touch! Looking forward to contributing to this excellent community, Jamie

Hungry For Hungary
Malcolm Haynes posted a topic in Other AdviceI have just inherited some money from the sale of my parents house. I am very new to the property market but in my search for houses via RightMove, I have had several people I know who live near me in Doncaster say that they would love to be my tenants, That is great, but another friend has offered me his house in Hungary for a fraction of the cost of house prices in UK. I have checked out house prises in his area and it is at a reasonable price and it it is close to a large city. Not sure if my first house that I buy should be overseas where I have no tenants (but letting agents could help) or buy close to home where I know the tenants?
