Coronavirus: Property insiders share what’s really happening

This week on The Property Podcast, Rob & Rob are talking to property experts and going behind the scenes to gain insight on how Coronavirus is impacting the property industry.

They’ll be talking to a property sourcer, a lettings manager and an investment consultant, and diving into what’s happening in their worlds right now.

And of course, they’re all experts from our own teams. Some people who might be new to The Property Podcast might not know that we have a number of businesses under the one roof including lettings, invest, tax and homes.

So, this is your chance to hear from the best of the best, and hear first hand on how Coronavirus is affecting team Property Hub.


In the news this week, we’ve actually got two positive news stories for you, can you believe it?!

The first is about mortgage holidays for buy-to-let investors, specifically those who invest in limited companies. And it’s good news! You are eligible for the mortgage holiday scheme, just like those who have bought in their personal name. That’s actually always been the case, there was just a bit of misunderstanding around it.

The second piece of good news is around the length of mortgage offers. Across the country there are a number of people who have exchanged on a property but it’s incredibly difficult for them to complete on them for logistical reasons and people are no longer allowed to move homes. The good news is that mortgage lenders are allowing 3 month extensions on mortgage agreements so you don’t have to worry about them expiring before you can complete.


Our Hub Extra this week is one we’ve mentioned previously in our Hub Extra email, and it’s Disney+. We all know Rob B is a huge Disney fan so we’re struggling to figure out if he’s subscribed for himself or his family. But what we do know is that a number of the Property Hub team have also been enjoying the classic (and remakes of) Disney movies.

So if you haven’t subscribed to it yet, why not try the 7 day free trial and maybe watch some of your favourite Disney movies as many times as you’d like?
