What should I do as the property cycle reaches its peak? PLUS: I’m an expat – can I get a mortgage?

Rob & Rob are back this week for another episode of Ask Rob & Rob and this week they’re offering advice on releasing equity and purchasing property as an expat.

Our first caller of this week’s episode has a question about one of Rob & Rob’s favourite topics, the 18 year property cycle.

He wants to know what you should do at the height of the market? Essentially, should you release equity from your portfolio to purchase more property after the crash or should you sell up completely and then start again post crash?

If you need to refresh your mind on the 18 year property cycle, head on over to Property Hub University and take a look at our free online course.

Rob B tackles this question head on – ultimately, it all depends on if you plan to be an active property investor after the crash. He answers this question in two parts so it’s certainly worth listening to.

The second question comes in from a chap all the way from Dubai.

His current situation is that he’s living off his rental income which is through a limited company, however his broker has now told him that he won’t be able to purchase any more property through that limited company.

Is this true and should he look for another way to invest in UK property?

Tune in to find out.
