Mixed private / rented accomodation

Recommended Posts

I'd be interested if hubbers have any experience or advice on this...

I'm an expat living overseas for most of the year, but spend some time in London. I have had enough of hotels and would like to buy a flat to stay in when I am over. But I would also like to rent the flat out when I am not there through a professional company. Longer term, I would like to keep the flat possibly for sole personal use or to give to my kids.  At the moment I would only need the flat for around 30 days a year. Clearly the yield in London is not strong, but this does not need to be a money spinner. 

I have a small property portfolio (mainly outside London) which is run through a Ltd company. 

Question is whether I should buy the new flat through the property company or whether I should buy privately as a (second) home or as a holiday let. 

I'm only at the start of researching this and will ultimately take professional advice, but it would be great to hear of any similar experiences/advice!

Cheers all!
