Protecting yourself from property fraud

Property fraud is where fraudsters try to “steal” your property, most commonly by pretending to be you and selling or mortgaging your property without your knowledge. This is such a nightmare scenario as your property is your most valuable asset, which is why fraudsters target it.Properties that are more vulnerable to fraud are: Mortgage free properties Tenanted properties Empty properties If the owner lives overseas Where the owner has died and the property is held in trust Fraudster’s can attempt to acquire ownership by stealing an owner’s identity by using a forged document or impersonating the registered owner.

Are Leasehold Properties Good For Buy-To-Let Investments?

  For years now property investors have been arguing over whether it’s better to look at leasehold or freehold property. Both have their positives and negatives – it just depends on which strategy you believe will suit you, as an investor, best. What is a leasehold property?A leasehold property in the UK tends to be a flat. When you purchase it you retain the rights for the property for a particular period, whereas a freeholder has complete control over the building and owns the land on which it sits.A lease option is the written agreement between the freeholder and whoever is exclusively leasing the property. The latter has the ‘option’ to buy, rent or sell the property (depending on the document’s specific wording).Negatives of a leasehold buy to let Possible no letting clause.

Beating The Buy-To-Let Tax Changes

Any buy-to-let investments are now subject to a new, higher form of taxation. If you are one of the landlords affected, will you be able to cope with the new tax increases?

The result of this is a higher tax bill for many landlords across the UK. Taxation Changes The new rules only apply to private individual landlords, so those who own properties through companies should be unaffected.

What the New Tax Changes Mean for Landlords

As most of us in the residential property investment sector are already aware last Thursday saw the introduction of the first phase of a new government tax move to penalise landlords. Legislation cutting tax relief for higher earning landlords (those earning more than £40,000 per annum) will be phased out gradually over four years and replaced with a standard 20 per cent tax credit. Before April 6, higher earning landlords were able to deduct mortgage interest payments of up to 45 per cent from their tax bills. Like the 3% Stamp Duty on BTL and second homes, the new legislation is intended to hurt landlords in the pocket. And certainly, for some landlords, they’ll be paying more in tax than they make in profit. That’s because they’ll be charged on their full rental income (rather than just profit). Investor Steve Bolton, who led – and lost - a court challenge...
