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...

Manchester: Defining the next 20 years of UK property investment

Britain's rental market is on the brink of change ─ and it’s the north-west city that holds the greatest opportunity for property investors. There’s one city currently on the lips of UK property investors more than any other. Manchester is already firmly established as the most popular investment location in Britain right now. It’s home to the highest average yields and a population that’s grown by three times the national average over the last 10 years. But the level of investment that’s already been made barely scratches the surface of what Manchester needs. The city has one of the lowest levels of housing supply anywhere in the country, despite the huge growth in the number of people that now call Manchester home. One demographic in particular has felt the pinch more than any other. Manchester’s population already has a high density of young people, and it’s estimated that 89% of...

Head to Manchester for the UK's new £50bn property asset?

  Britain's rental market is on the brink of change ─ and it’s the north-west city that holds the greatest opportunity for property investors.

But the level of investment that’s already been made barely scratches the surface of what Manchester needs.

Are More UK Investors Going to Buy Property Abroad?

  There are currently a number of reasons to suspect that the UK's property investors may be about to increase their interest in overseas markets. Not least of these is the continuous roll-out, over the next few years, of tax changes designed to target investors in the UK market. The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) expects that by 2017, the number of UK homes purchased as buy-to-let investments will be down by more than 20% compared to 2015. However, most of the investors who are no longer buying UK properties will likely be looking for alternatives rather than giving up on new investments altogether. Continuing to invest in buy-to-let but doing so in overseas markets that are sheltered from the UK's current anti-lettings climate could prove an attractive solution. In particular, many markets in Europe are just at the start of recovery from recession. For investors, this means the chance to...

Tory peer slates his party's attack on buy to let investors

[caption id="attachment_14268" align="alignleft" width="190"] Lord Flight Lord Flight, the Tory peer has urged his party to re-think their 'sudden attack' on buy to let investors. He warned it could trigger a sharp drop in house prices and destabilise the market, which could potentially lead to a crash. Lord Flight, a former Conservative Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury is the first prominent politician to openly criticise the government's surprise attack on private investors. Many private landlords have pledged to fight the tax changes through a judicial review. Unfortunately, George Osborne has gained Royal Assent for a new tax on landlords and property investors from 2017. You can read the full article in The Telegraph here.  If you haven't already, you can still sign the petition against these tax changes. As of today, there are 50,094 signatures. We need to get it to 100,000, then it will be considered for debate. The link...

The Importance of Property Portfolio Insurance

Investing in property often involves years of hard work and canny decisions to build up a diverse and successful portfolio. Something so precious should not be left unprotected and vulnerable to loss or damage by the whims of fate. Property portfolio insurance offers a straightforward means of protecting ones assets against risk and loss and helps to provide peace of mind concerning ones future financial security. What is Property Portfolio Insurance? Property Portfolio Insurance is sometimes also known as Landlords Insurance and like any typical insurance, its primary purpose is to protect your hard earned assets from potential risks. The key benefit of this insurance is that multiple properties across an entire portfolio can be consolidated into one policy, making the organisational logistics more straightforward and simpler to manage. Different policies cover differing circumstances and there are certain criteria that must be met to qualify, depending on the chosen insurer. With...

Between a rock and a harder place

    Stephen Moss, CEO of Pring.co.uk the UK’s leading property investment search engine, takes a look at the impact of ‘Corbynmania’ on the property market and landlords in particular… Many landlords are still coming to terms with the Government’s plans to penalise and fine them for offering tenancies to people who have entered the country without the necessary authority. It seems grossly unfair, in a situation where border controls are ineffectual and hundreds of thousands of people from the Middle East are being displaced across Europe through no fault of their own, that landlords should become the arbiters of who should and who should not, be housed. To add to landlords concerns, there is speculation and official hints that interest rates are about to rise, throwing as many as one million households into the position where they cannot honour their mortgage obligations.  The private letting sector is somehow expected to...

How is the global property market performing?

  After a difficult period during the economic crisis of 2008, the housing market all over the world has been recovering nicely. However, not all areas are improving at the same rate, and if you want to invest internationally, it is worth comparing a few different regions of the world. Best performing countries in the property market Hong Kong property prices are estimated to have risen faster than any other country in the world. In the year between March 2014 and March 2015, the prices have risen by more than 19%. One of the reasons for the rise here is that there is a shortage of property. The second biggest climber in the global property market is Turkey, where prices have risen by 18.6%.

Why Student Property Investment should not be impacted by rising interest rates

For the first time since 2007, interest rates are set to rise in the United Kingdom. This is something which an investor has not had to worry about in a while. However, they are going to have to start. A rise in interest rates is going to have an impact on your mortgage and the amount of yield you get from the properties you own.

Is Student Property Investment a Risky Option?

In the early stages of this year total investment value in the sector is expected to hit the £2 billion mark, according to a recent Aspen Woolf report. Investors are being drawn into student property largely by high returns. Last year, returns averaged 13.7%, well ahead of the average buy-to-let property, so it is not hard to see the allure.

Why Invest in Central Europe?

For many UK based property investors, buying abroad means two things rather than one. The location of the property is half of the reason many of us choose to invest overseas. The second, of course, is the expected return for the investment. In many cases, the decision to invest is made when the two elements combine. Put another way, many British investors opt for a second home in the sun which provides a bolt-hole and a growth opportunity

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.
