Where in the “Northern Powerhouse” should I buy? PLUS: Should Stamp Duty be scrapped completely?

Welcome back to another week of Ask Rob & Rob.

To get us started this week we’ve got Luke.

He’s only 22 and already looking into investing his money into property.

Luke knows that he wants to invest in buy-to-let properties through a limited company but he’s unsure on where to actually buy.

He’s been looking into the Northern Powerhouse locations but already knows that he’s priced out of Manchester and Liverpool city centre so has been looking at surrounding towns.

This issus is that Luke is struggling to find the confidence to invest in these locations and is wondering if Rob & Rob have any advice on whether he should just go for it.

Second up we’ve got Paul calling from Dubai.

Thanks to all the free content from Property Hub, Paul and his wife gained the confidence to invest and are about to complete on their third property in 12 months.

Pretty good going!

Paul is wondering if The Robs think that there’s potential for the government to scrap stamp duty altogether and try to claw back the lost revenue by tightening on capital gains tax.

What do Rob & Rob think?

Tune in to find out.
