Why You Dont Have to Switch From an Oil Heating System

As an energy source, heating with oil gets a lot of bad press: too expensive, dirty and inefficient, not to mention non-renewable. In the past, some of these criticisms may have been true but modern oil heating systems have moved on significantly, and for many retail and commercial properties, there is no other option.

Modern, condensing boilers are highly efficient, with those rated ‘A’ being the best. In addition to fuel efficiency, modern boilers are highly reliable. Whether you need it for heat only or heat and hot water, a new boiler is worth the investment. And don’t be tempted to guess at the size you need.

On Wednesday 16th October Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action appeared on BBC4’s You and Yours show, to highlight the shocking risk to landlords of the latest money making strategy to sweep the property industry, “Rent to Rent”.  It’s a simple concept: Rent a house, then sub-let the rooms to sub- tenants and make as much profit as possible.  This will be available to listen to on BBC iPlayer This is a mushrooming phenomenon which has seen hoards of “experts” writing blogs, books and seminars on how to get started and even running courses costing up to £500 on how to bring in tens of thousands of pounds with virtually no out-lay. One such “guru” includes Daniel Burton who claimed he earned £35,000 a month from the get-rich-quick scheme.  Last week, The Guardian revealed he has gone missing, leaving tenants and landlords across London hundreds of pounds out of pocket.

Get the valuation you need!

Getting your property deal often seems like a succession of hurdles that the investor must go through including agreeing, negotiating and getting the finance. A further hurdle that is paramount to getting your deal is getting through the valuation and this is often an area where investors feel most out of control. Very few investors have attended more valuations than the new owner of Meet The Surveyor, Sonny Walia and his professional team.

Here Sonny gives his top tips to get the valuation you need. What kind of supporting evidence do you suggest the buyer takes to support the value they feel the property is worth?

Take a Tea Break and Reflect, is Property Really The Ultimate Asset Class? By Phil Martin

Phil Martin asks .... SO.... is property investment really as good as its cracked up to be? We are at a low point in the property market. We are bombarded by information from the media that we are in a Credit Crunch and that the Recession will continue to bite deeper. I do not internalise this very much and choose not to have a personal recession, instead seeing the huge opportunities that others miss.

The truth is that there have been recessions, crashes and crunches before, the breathing in and out of the collective economies. These appear in nature as well as throughout human history. There will always be times of expansion and times of contraction...

What are Self Invested Personal Pensions?

    A Self Invested Personal Pension puts the investor in control of their own pension planning. In other personal pensions and stakeholder pensions the investor can be at the mercy of the fund manager, however with a SIPP the investor has control and flexibility.   SIPPs can be sophisticated, complicated and costly, they can however, provide excellent tax planning solutions and provide an investor with more control over their pension planning through greater investment options.   A SIPP is most suitable for the self employed who enjoy good incomes, as administration costs are greater than ordinary pensions.   You can invest in a number of different asset classes through a SIPP, however purchasing commercial property as part of a SIPP portfolio can be particularly beneficial for purchasing ones own business premises.   Self Invested Personal Pensions like any pension are designed for long term retirement investment.
