How do I get the ball rolling with a joint property venture? PLUS: What is a safe loan−to−value percentage?

This week on Ask Rob & Rob, the guys are answering another two cracking questions sent in by our Hubbers.

First up is Mike. He’s an avid Property Podcast listener and after just four or five months he took the plunge and invested in a great Liverpool buy-to-let deal we launched just a few months ago.

Mike is wanting more information on joint property ventures – particularly on how he can get the ball rolling. Now that he’s made his first investment, he’s got the bug and wants to see how he can secure his second property without having to wait too long to release some capital from his first.

Can an individual go into a joint venture with a limited company? A pretty decent question if you ask us. So what’s the answer? And are The Robs a fan of joint ventures?

Our second question comes from James who’s wondering what a sensible loan-to-value ratio is. Do The Robs think having a portfolio at a 75% LTV is a risky move?

Rob D explains that a 75% loan to value is pretty standard these days and for it to be a bad idea, the market would have to drop more than 25% overnight.

But there’s much more to be said on this topic. So tune in to find out what else Rob D has to say about loan-to-value ratios when investing in investment property.
