Calling UK Landlords: How to Get Prepared for Tax Relief Changes

As you may already know, there have been a lot of reports published by the press showing how young people in the UK are struggling to get onto the property ladder. In fact, they have been labelled as “generation rent”. Arguably, this is due to savvy investors choosing to make a good living through buy-to-let mortgages. To be more specific, a greater demand for properties drives up house prices and rent in certain areas. As a result, the government have decided to make a set of changes to tax relief. Arguably, this is a thinly veiled attempt to reduce the attractiveness of the buy-to-let investment strategy, thereby allowing more people to jump onto the property ladder. Depending on your investment strategy and financial strategy these changes could affect you. Let’s delve into the tax relief changes, and how you can use the information to gain a legal advantage. Notably, the...

Furnishing options in rented properties

  For many people, renting a property offers many advantages over owning a home. Rather than being fixed to one particular location and having to deal with the costly maintenance of a property, people who rent have the flexibility to pick and choose how and where they want to live. However, such a choice can have its downsides. The relative insecurity and eventual cost of renting can lead to many people joining the property ladder. And a big decision that people face when renting a property will be whether to go furnished or unfurnished. Unfurnished home For many people, renting an unfurnished property allows them to feel like the house is much more like a home. It allows them the greater opportunity to use furniture and furnishings in a way that reflects their own personality and tastes. And for many people who have been renting for a number of years, they...

Demand for London property increases

  Research by leading online estate agent eMoov.co.uk has found that demand for London property has increased for the first time this year, having declined steadily since June 2014. Demand across London’s boroughs has climbed by 7% since March, although it is still down -15% since this time last year. Founder and CEO of eMoov.co.uk, Russell Quirk, commented: “It doesn’t surprise me that despite the market cooling in some of the capitals more prestigious boroughs, house prices in London have continued to rise. It’s long been accepted that London is one of the most expensive cities to live in the world, let alone the UK, but now that the average house price has tipped above the half a million mark, it really highlights how out of control the property market has become here. The main factor in price growth is always demand and our latest Property Hotspots Index found that...

A Little Look at House Prices

House prices are on a lot of people’s lips a lot of the time and so I thought that perhaps I could contribute by collating some recent news items from across the country. The gist of them all is that house prices are rising rather quickly across the UK and especially in large metropolitan areas like London. They’re great for the sellers, not so much for the buyers.

Anyone who likes to keep up to date with developments in the private rental sector (PRS) will no doubt be familiar with the phrase generation rent. This term has become commonplace in the industry in recent times and essentially refers to the growing number of young people who are living in rented accommodation rather than buying their own home.

Tenancy Disputes on The Rise

Amid continuing high spirits over the continuing rise in property prices, it would be easy to forget that this optimism is not shared by all.

Buying your main home without the resource of the "Bank of Mum & Dad"

How much will I need to save? Typically, you’ll need to save at least 5% of the cost of the home you want to buy to get a mortgage. So if you want to buy a home costing £125,000, you’ll need to save £6,250. The larger the deposit you can save, the cheaper the mortgage you can get.

Michael Holmes, broadcaster and self build expert, explains how to save up to 50 per cent on your self-build costs

The latest Government announcement that new home building has fallen below the 100,000 mark in England (with under 8,000 built in Yorkshire and the Humber) indicates further problems for people looking to buy properties.  What’s more, recent taxes such as the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on new developments and self-build is also discouraging those who would like to go it alone, according to Homebuilding & Renovating magazine. However, Michael Holmes, editor of the magazine and spokesperson for The National Homebuilding and Renovating Show, believes that building your own home is still the best option as careful management of your self-build budget can save up to 50 per cent on your build costs and help you put a foot on the property ladder.

Getting On The Property Ladder

  As costs rise and incomes stagnate, first-time buyers may feel they are relegated to paying rents to live.   Those who do manage to find enough deposit money however, must identify the best financial package for their circumstances including where to source their property!   If you answer these 5-simple questions positively, you will be reassured you could progress successfully to becoming a property owner.   1. Is My Bank Account Clean? ~ If your bank statements balance more often than not, it shows you are actively managing your money; something lenders like to see. Lenders normally want at least 3-current monthly statements showing your income and expenditure. Though an overdraft may reduce the maximum loan you could obtain, in itself it is not a problem provided it is not out of control. Unpaid cheques, direct debits or excessive bank charges are red-flags.   2. Can I Get A Mortgage? ~ Paying a lender administration and survey fee only to be turned down is really frustrating and...

Is Property a Sound Investment?

For many of us, the property ladder and the housing market can be complex. Low house prices are good for buyers and bad for sellers which means there is never going to be a win win situation. However, we can all hope for an ideal situation for both sides of the table. The latest figures from the housing market aren’t clear to those who are already on the property ladder and those who are planning to climb onto it. It has been warned by estate agents that it could take another five years for the market to fully recover from the economic downturn. The figures show that sales are increasing but the prices properties are being sold for are falling. Amongst this uncertain time homeowners should find some comfort in knowing that the majority of people feel that owning a property is still the best, long term investment. The investment...

More First Time Buyers in the Property Market

The first time buyer sector of the housing market has increased yet again for the eight consecutive month. The recent stamp duty relief is the reason for this, estate agents say. January saw a 2 percent increase on December, where 23 percent of sales were first time buyers. Most people are stuck in the rental sector, paying heavy costs for rent and tenants content insurance with no property gain, as raising money for a deposit on a property is very difficult at the present. So, many first time buyers are taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday. The relief will end next month and The National Association of Estate Agents, NAEA, are worried at what this change will do to the housing market as it will cause a great disruption. The NAEA say that a “key factor” for first time buyers getting onto the property ladder was that they did not...

The Benefits of Part Buy, Part Rent

Lenders aren’t willing to lend, house prices are high and the required deposits are growing as a result. Getting that first foot on the property ladder in the current climate is incredibly difficult, but with private rental rates increasing year on year, many feel the need to escape private housing and invest in their own property. Shared ownership (also know as Part Buy, Part Rent) gives first time buyers the opportunity to invest in a property by purchasing between 25 and 75 per cent of the market value of the property. The rest of the share is taken on by the housing association the property is bought from. Generally, the purchase will require a deposit of 5% of the share that is purchased, requiring a mortgage to be raised for the rest of the share. With the average price of a deposit sitting somewhere between the £20,000-£22,000 mark (at roughly...
