Will pension reforms cause a property boom in 2015?

At the end of this recording, we remarked how the “boring” episodes are often our favourites. Including inflation, interest rates, and now pension reform.

Pension reform might sound like a dull subject, but it could have a huge impact for property investors. So in this episode, we asked: will the shake-up announced by George Osbourne in his recent budget set us up for a property boom in 2015?

Take a listen to the episode to hear all the details – we packed a lot in!

This week’s news story is from the Telegraph, which flags up the hidden charges charged by letting agents that could cost you thousands of pounds. We found this story via Property Hub member Richard Brown’s excellent newsfeed, where he adds his own commentary.

It’s not exactly news that many letting agents are somewhat opaque with their charges, it’s one of the reasons we started Yellow Lettings after all. However, it’s a useful reminder to always read the small print and brings up some extra sneaky charges that you should be looking out for.

This week’s resource was recommended by another Property Hub member, Nick Stott. He’s a big fan of the task management software Asana. Rob B has started using it in his business, and is seriously impressed.

It’s free, so no reason not to give it a try!
