How long should I fix for? PLUS: Is “no money down” the way to go?

Rob & Rob are back once again for another epic episode of Ask Rob & Rob. This week they’re trying to help two callers with mortgage advice and are giving their thoughts on wherever they think no money down deals are a good idea.

Our first caller this week is Adamish and his question is on to buy-to-let mortgages.

He’s spoken to a mortgage advisor and they’ve advised him to refinance his current property on a fixed five year buy-to-let mortgage as the checks are a little more relaxed.

So essentially he’s wanting to know what Rob & Rob would do if they were in his shoes as a first time investor.

Does the current property market have any effect on how long he should get a fixed buy-to-let mortgage for? Or should he even be going for a fixed buy-to-let mortgage?

The second question this week is from Ashley who’s calling from Wales and he’s been drawn in by the idea of no money down deals. Uh oh!

Ashley has done two previous flips so now has a bit of equity behind him. He’s looking at turning his strategy to vanilla buy-to-let properties but he’s wondering how to go about it.

Should he straight away set up a Limited Company and keep buying a single buy-to-let each year over the next 10 years and build his portfolio up that way? Or should he hold onto his money and explore the world of no money down deals?

We’ve heard The Robs views on this in the past, but what advice would they give?

Tune in to find out…
