Plumbing and Building Considerations for People Wanting to Renovate

In many ways, there has never been a better time to invest in improving your property.This is thanks largely to an increasingly robust property market in the UK, with house prices set to increase by an impressive 7% next year, despite the sustained uncertainty surrounding Brexit and stagnant real wage growth. This growth is particularly prominent in vibrant regional cities such as Birmingham and Manchester, and if you live in these areas you may well be keen on improving your property with a view to adding value.There are certain plumbing and building considerations that you need to pay attention to when renovating your home, however, including the following: 1. Single-storey Extensions Nearly Always Require Planning Permission One of the most popular home-improvement projects involves an extension, which can cost up to £19,500 while delivering an estimated ROI of 71%. You need to know that while single-storey extensions of three metres...

Lord Sugar received £181m Dividend from Property

  If you’ve ever been put off investing in the property market because of the odd bad-luck story or two, then Lord Sugar is the inspiration you need to get back on that bandwagon again. That’s because the star of The Apprentice, who became incredibly successful in the 1970s with his Amstrad computer company and is today reckoned to be worth around £1 billion, has just received another boost to his already massive fortune. This just happens to be in the form of a very impressive £181 million in dividend payouts from his commercial property trading and investing company. It’s a jaw-dropping sum and even more so when you realise that his London-based company has actually suffered a fall in profits of up to 40 per cent, mostly due to the fact that a ‘very competitive market and overly-high stock’ meant they didn’t expand their portfolio much in 2015. And,...

Comments and Reactions to the Spring Budget 2017

  Yesterday saw the first budget announcement by Chancellor Hammond. Whilst the property market as a whole left feeling disappointed, we have put together some of the industry leaders comments and reactions to the Spring Budget for 2017. So, who are we hearing from today? We have the reactions from the founder and chairman of Platinum Property Partners Steve Bolton. The CEO of the London-based award winning bridging lender Market Financial Solutions Paresh Raja and finally, the founder and CEO of the leading online estate agents eMoov, Russel Quirk.   Steve Bolton Commented: Steve Bolton stared by suggesting that, “The housing market is broken – but today’s Budget was completely devoid of any policies to help homebuyers. It’s particularly disappointing that the Government failed to comment on or reform the upcoming reduction in mortgage tax relief for landlords that threatens to derail the buy-to-let sector (BTL).” “The route to homeownership...

Why Manchester is competing with London when it comes to buy-to-let investment

  Overseas buyers, as well as domestic buyers, are showing an interest in the property market in Manchester, and that is putting it on a level that is rivalling London. Currently, Manchester has the best performing property market beyond London, with rental yields reaching a high 6.02%. As a result of this, Chinese buyers are showing a real interest in the Manchester property market as opposed to the London market. The economy in Manchester has improved at an incredible rate since the IRA blast in 1996, which tore the city apart. The economy has doubled, the population has grown and employment is on the rise; and this will all be reflected in the residential market as demand will continue to be higher than supply. Manchester is also attracting a lot of visitors from the middle East, with visitor numbers increasing by 33% between 2011 and 2015. Visitors from the Middle...

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...

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...

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.

Mortgage Cuts in Britains Future

Growing concerns over the state of the UK’s property market have led to a number of large institutions putting plans in place that would see a curb on the amount of high level mortgage lending being offered to consumers. Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, was recently quoted as saying, “… recovery [of the housing market outside London] is fragile and … it’s important we don’t disrupt this recovery.” He went on to point out high LTI mortgages as being one of the biggest risks to the health of the UK property market.
