Why buy-to-let is cheaper than ever

Why buy-to-let is cheaper than ever

When it comes to letting property, the news is filled with doom and gloom - landlords selling their portfolios, and news of yet more regulations making letting property trickier. With this in mind, why on earth are we suggesting that now is actually the best time to invest in the buy-to-let market?

Background

In 2015 mortgage tax relief was abolished for landlords as part of the Section 24 Finance Bill, and this will start to have an impact on buy-to-let investors this January. Not only that, the criteria for buy-to-let mortgages were toughened towards the end of 2017. The effect of these changes has made many landlords stop to consider whether investing in property is still viable for them. Recent research from the National Association of Landlords (NLA) noted that 20% of landlords are planning to reduce or sell off their portfolios this year.

Young people need more support in rental sector

A series of proposals that could significantly impact on London's rental market have been suggested in a report by the Resolution Foundation aimed at reducing intergenerational unfairness.

The publication, titled A New Generational Contract, offers a range of steps to tackle the wealth gap between generations and much of this focuses on the issue of housing, both in terms of the difficulty faced by young people trying to get on the housing ladder and the challenges they face in the rental sector. 

A key proposal that could boost the supply of rental housing is for build-to-rent developments to be made exempt from stamp duty. This measure would have a major impact on areas where build-to-rent is well established, such as London and the north west, as well as aiding its growth on other parts of Britain.

Other measures are designed to make life easier for renters, not least when it comes to the security of tenure - with all tenancies being made of indefinite length as they now

The Dos and Don’ts of adding value to your property

The Dos and Don’ts of adding value to your property

Let’s face it, homes are a work in progress; there is always something we want to do or change. Even when we think we have finished, after a few years the impulse is there to revamp or reconfigure to suit our changing tastes and needs. It is natural to want to find ways to add value to your home, so before you start knocking down walls or building an extension, be aware that not all improvements add value.

Don’t believe any improvements add value

Before you jump into the improvements, you need to understand the market and where your home sits within it. There may be a ceiling price that a person will be prepared to pay for a property in your area, so it is always good to do your research to ensure any changes you make will add value to your property.

Sadly, sometimes even the most impressive improvements will not translate to a reciprocal increase in the value of your home. Ask an estate agent their opinion before you start, they

A new north-south divide in rental property?

For decades, people have talked about a north-south divide, with London and the south-east being established as the engine room of the UK economy and the Midlands and north suffering a decline as old industries slipped away. Inevitably, such trends have impacted in the property sector. 

This may appear to be particularly true after the publication of the latest Hamptons International Monthly Lettings Index, which has shown that although rents have risen by 1.9 per cent on average across the UK, there is significant regional variation; in the north they were down by 0.3 per cent and in Scotland they plunged by 5.3 per cent. 

go and co south

By contrast, London, the south-east and south-west, the Midlands and Wales all saw increases, while the East of England witnessed the largest rise at 3.6 per cent. London's 2.7 per cent increase represented a recovery from last year's two per cent fall. 

All this might suggest that the south remains the main place for rental investors to go and most of the nort

Although the time comes when we know its’ time to say goodbye, it still holds a special place in our heart. The difficult part of selling your home is changing how you view your property, from a home to a property for sale.

home staging tipss alexander

To achieve the ‘property for sale’ look we use what are called home staging techniques; follow them, and you increase the chances of your property being SOLD.

Where to begin?

When should you begin preparing your home for sale? The sooner you start, the less stressful it will be. You may not have made the decision to sell yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start to organise your home - just in case.

Organise

Your first step is to de-clutter your home. As you look around all the ‘stuff’ you have stored and piled in every room, cupboard, and drawer you may start to get overwhelmed. We always recommen
