How can I use my pension to invest in property? PLUS: How much do I need to earn from property to leave my job?

Pete Matthew from the Meaningful Money Podcast  joins Rob & Rob again this week as we delve into some personal finance questions relating to property investment.

Penny from Orpington wants to know how she can use her pension to buy property. It’s a question that crops up many times and this week, Pete shares his wisdom on whether this is possible or not.

Can she invest in residential property or should Penny consider putting her money into commercial property? Also, Pete shares some advice on SIPPs, PAIFs and REITs – and if you don’t know what these are, make sure you tune into this weeks Ask Rob & Rob with Pete to find out more.

Our second question this week comes from Rich in Romford. Rich owns seven properties and has dreams of leaving his job and live comfortably off the rental income from them. He wants to know how much he should be earning for him to quit his job when he’s currently bringing in around £2,000 per month before tax.

As Pete has told us previously, cashflow underpins everything – money in versus money out. There’s some great advice for Rich this week as Pete talks him through short term debt, contingency plans and the importance of having a ‘cushion’ for those unexpected things that crop up. We recommend tuning in to hear more.
