Why Property-Owning Expats Need to Act Soon on UK Tax Hikes

Many UK nationals who are now resident abroad continue to own properties in the UK. For some, it is a way to avoid parting with their UK residence and turn it into a profitable investment while they are not using it. For others, it is simply because UK property remains an attractive asset to have in an investment portfolio. However, a number of tax increases and rule changes are due to hit UK property investment, starting very soon and continuing to roll out over several years. Those who are not resident in the UK are sheltered from some of the changes, but by no means all. In particular, there are two tax hikes coming up soon that will impact expat investors. The first of these is a 3% increase in stamp duty when a new UK property is purchased by somebody who already owns a property in the UK. This...

Near term price expectations reach 20 month high

RICS have just released their UK Residential Survey for December 2015. Here are the key facts: Buyer demand growth picked up due to the unseasonably mild weather.  This in fact boosted activity. New instructions increased for the first time since January 2015. Price momentum remains firm Strong Growth The survey shows strong price growth to the end of the year, with 50% of respondents reporting that prices have risen. East Anglia and the South East are showing the strongest price growth but all parts of the UK are reported to shown some growth. Buyers enquiries are rising at a faster pace than new instructions, thus giving a demand/supply imbalance. Stamp Duty Increase There is a view that this increased demand was due to buy to let investors trying to complete their transactions before the new tier of stamp duty is introduced in April 2016. New instructions to sell edged up slightly...

What can we expect for the property market in 2016?

  It’s always good to have a diverse portfolio, so perhaps it is worth looking at other investment opportunities as well as property.  This article will also discuss the economic factors impacting the property market. Stock market It’s important to have a serious understanding of the stock market before you get involved. The price of oil which clearly impacts many of the largest multinationals and some of the old favourites e.g. BP and Royal Dutch Shell, has dropped to 11 year lows, and was an incredible 46% down in 2015. It has gone from an incredible $116 a barrel, to around $34 a barrel and it would take a brave individual to predict that price will rise in 2016 with supply continuing to come onto the market from all sides of the globe e.g. Iran, Russia, Middle East, USA. The FTSE 100  This started the year at 6560 and ended the year at 6242, with...

The "Next BiG Thing" (property investors take note!)

I was on the phone earlier this week with Daniel Wagner (we met through one of the big London property conference’s a year ago) Im so excited by what hes told me: Daniels been teaching a group of VIPs at the UK’s biggest property training company how to build a deposit (as in £15k - £20k’s worth of cash) by posting product listings on Amazon for small, everyday items that make £10 - £20 profit PER SALE... I know that sounds STUPIDLY simple but he’s got no problem backing up the claim with proof. Daniel forwarded me this iPhone screenshot message from just one of the property investors he’s recently taught: Isn’t that crazy?? Quick, regular lumps of cash by posting listings on Amazon. It’s working so well because the marketplace on Amazon is VAST and no-one else in the UK knows how this works - No, nothing to do...

The Dos and Donts of Applying for an Extension

Many property investors purchase properties with the expressed intention of doing them up to sell on. A big part of the ‘fixer-upper’ process is determining whether or not it’s possible – and affordable – to increase the size of the home. This can be achieved in one of two ways; by adding an extension, or by converting existing space such as a loft.

Top Tips for Investing by the Sea

There’s probably not a British person alive who doesn’t look back with fondness on happy childhood days spent playing at the seaside. In fact, it’s almost certain that this sense of nostalgia has something to do with the popularity of seaside holidays in the UK, where every year hundreds of thousands of Brits will forgo a foreign excursion. In favour of a more traditional vacation in places such as Blackpool and Southend, whose popularity soared with the advent of ‘pleasure palaces’ in the Victorian era.

Joint Ventures...Its All Change!

 It’s a real favourite, isn’t it?  The ability to JV (Joint Venture) with someone on a property deal (as long as it goes well!) can create a real win/win situation for all concerned.  Making use of JV finance historically has enabled people to be involved in the world of property investment when they may not otherwise have been able, on both sides.  Many property education companies tell us how to nurture associations with people and work together in order for us to use OPM (Other Peoples’ Money) to help us finance deals.      FCA Policy Statement   This is great in principle, however... times have changed.  Since the 1st January 2014, the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) has brought in a new Policy Statement governing the way JV relationships may operate.  Policy Statement 13/3 defines some very clear rules to determine how we may or may not form a JV partnership.  In...

Property Investment - how do I raise the finance?

It’s the $64,000 question when starting out in property investment.  How do I raise the finance to begin?  If you are starting from the privileged perspective of having a good chunk of capital or you are able to release equity from a property to work with when you begin to buy property then that is great.  It makes the process much easier from many angles.  It gives you the confidence to know that any offer you make is backed up by funds in the bank and therefore offers you greater bargaining power.  Coupled with the right knowledge and guidance, it also means that you can start your search sooner rather than later and get going on your chosen strategy. Starting from scratch? If, however, you are starting from scratch, then things can be altogether different.  In my opinion it all depends on your mindset.  If you are truly open to...
