An Introduction to Property Options

Described as the Power Steering of property investment, Options are powerful problem solvers and cash-flow creators. Though not suited to all situations, they are transforming the way investors view and transact residential property in the UK. They can fast-track you to financial freedom.   Property Options in Brief Purchase Options, Lease Options and Sandwich Options are becoming familiar terms with Property investors. Perhaps you are already using these powerful legal agreements to add to your portfolio, to generate cash-flow, to sell property which might otherwise stick, or to secure your family home.   Understanding Property Options and using them with skill is important.

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...

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...

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...

Beating the Buy-to-Let Tax Hikes

  George Osbornes most recent budget was bleak news for many landlords. New rules, to be phased in between 2017 and 2020, stand to cut gross returns on buy-to-let properties by almost 11% and could leave many investors with loss-making investments. Tax relief on investment mortgages has been dramatically cut for higher rate taxpayers, limited to 20% of interest. According to London & Country Mortgages, this would turn a £160,000 property with a £120,000 loan from a £612-a-year profit maker to a loss maker of £588 annually. However, there are several quite legal steps that landlords can take to reduce their tax liability under the new rules, reducing or evading the impact of the changes. These include: Sharing Couples Personal Allowances It may be possible for couples to share their personal allowances to some extent in order to reduce tax liability. If you are making money on a buy-to-let investment...

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%. The figures were published in the Knight Frank Global House Prices Index, and the countries that complete the top five are Ireland, Luxembourg and Estonia. Measures...

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?

Student property has thoroughly shed its former status as a niche investment. 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

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...
