How much should I pay for this deal? PLUS: How do I structure this joint venture?

It’s Tuesday, so we’re back with more listener questions. 

First up this week is Becky from Essex. 

Becky’s about to complete on her first buy-to-let deal (three cheers for Becky!), but she’s already looking at her next deal… 

She wants to buy the flat above hers, off-market, and she’s wondering how much discount she could get with a deal like this?  

Becky’s also hoping Rob & Rob can shed some light on how off-market deals work, and how the process differs from a standard purchase. 

Next up is a cracker of a question from Alex in Devon. 

After using a cash loan from a friend, Alex purchased his first property a year ago and now he’s about to repay the friend after increasing the property’s value and remortgaging. 

His friend wants to extend this partnership and re-loan him the money. Alex wants to go ahead with the loan and split it into two £50k deposits, but he’s hit a roadblock. 

His broker has advised that lenders aren’t likely to loan to him due to his friend wanting to have a second charge for security. 

Is there a way they could restructure the loan to suit, or are they just asking the wrong questions and dealing with the wrong lenders? 

Tune in to find out what the guys have got to say.
