Is it time for fixed-rates? PLUS: How do I increase the rent?

Rob & Rob are back to answer more of your questions! 

The Bank of England have been increasing interest rates, and there’s no signs of this slowing down anytime soon – that’s why Tom wants to know what he should do about his mortgage. 

One of Tom’s properties is on a 5-year variable rate mortgage with the possibility to leave at any time with no fees. 

With the potential for interest rates to continue to soar Tom wants to know “Is now the time to switch to a fixed-rate mortgage?”. 

Next up, we’ve got a question from Shaz in Derby. 

He’s currently looking at purchasing a tenanted property, where the tenant is on a rolling, short-term contract. Shaz isn’t too impressed with the rent they’re paying though, as it’s around 20% under market value. 

He wants to know what his options are, and the best practice for raising the rent to meet the current market value. 

Tune in to find out what advice the guys have got this week.
