– Which Works Best For You?

There are many different approaches to property investment and a multitude of different methods and strategies that can be employed to generate profits from property, but which style of property investment methodology works best for you?

There isn’t enough room on this post to go into a great deal of detail about each and every different property investment method and strategy in use today, so we will just stick to a more broad descriptive about the advantages and disadvantages of active and passive property investment methods and we will focus on only the main points.

Politicians Want PRS Control

Politicians Want PRS Control

Labour Announces Further PRS Controls

The Labour party leader, Ed Miliband, has announced his party’s plans to reform the private rented sector (PRS), with longer term tenancies and rent cap proposals, should they win the May general election.

Labour have been at the forefront of the PRS reform movement for some time, campaigning for longer term tenancies for tenants in the private sector and now the political party leaders want to introduce even more legislation that would effectively cap rental prices so they cannot be increased by more than the rate of inflation (CPI) during the proposed secure three-year tenancies.

The PRS control proposals were supposed to win the hearts and minds of the 9.1 Million households currently living in private rented sector properties, however even tenant campaign groups can see that these new proposals have more holes in them than an old Swiss cheese.

The introduction of new legislation that Labour are proposing would require landlords and letting agents to disclose the rental prices charged to any previous rented property occupants, allowing tenants to have the upper hand in negotiating the best possible rental price with landlords, before the start of a new tenancy.

Do TESCO provide customers with information concerning the actual purchase price that they pay for items before they sell them on at a huge profit, do they reveal operational profit margins – No they don’t!
Prices fluctuate as do operational costs, why should landlords be singled out for special measures when other business sectors are left alone?

Property Investment Quick StartProperty Investment Quick Start With Simon Zutshi

Would be property investors who want to get their investment career off to the best start in 2015 should consider joining Simon Zutshi’s Property Investment Quick Start Programme (PIQS) to help them achieve amazing results.

Simon Zutshi’s PIQS programme teaches new and seasoned property investors how to buy property using none of their own money!

As many property investors will testify, there has never been a better time to make money in the UK property market, if property investors know what they are doing!

One of the most profitable ways to invest in property is to purchase from motivated sellers, who are more than happy to sell you their property for less than the true market value.

This allows property investors to make instant equity profits from day one, as well as positive monthly cash flow as well as long-term capital growth.

There are still thousands of property owners who need and want to sell their property but they can’t because there are just aren’t enough buyers in the market.

First-time buyers don’t think they are able to buy even with the aid of the Government’s Help To Buy scheme, and amateur property investors are waiting until they are certain that the market has recovered and is on its up way again before they buy.

What this means for you is that there is a HUGE opportunity, as long as you know what you are doing, and start taking action now!

After just one day with Simon Zutshi, property investors will know exactly how to profit in the current property market whilst minimising the risks.

On the one day “Property Investing Quick Start” (PIQS) seminar, Simon Zutshi will share with property investors the benefit of his successful property investing experience, as he has been in property since 1995 and has already helped many thousands of investors personally since 2003.

Property investors will know exactly what to do and even have their own action plan to make sure that they really do get a quick start!

Help-To-Buy Scheme Could Threaten UK Housing Market

Help-To-Buy Scheme Could Threaten UK Housing Market

The Help To Buy Scheme Could Be Scaled Back Amid Concerns That The UK Property Market Could Be Heading
For Another Property Bubble

George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has said that the Bank of England are being vigilant on UK house price rises and they would intervene if the situation becomes necessary.

The Chancellor’s comments come after the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warned that the booming UK property market could threaten the economic recovery of the country.

Possible action could include reigning back the Government’s Help-To-Buy scheme, which enables people with only a small deposit to take out a mortgage.

In a report the OECD said that “The UK should introduce measures to address the risks of excessive house price inflation, as property values now significantly exceed long-term averages relative to rents and household incomes. Access to the Help to Buy scheme should be tightened, and buyers should be required to put down bigger deposits for mortgages”.

In response to the report, Mr Osborne said: “I’ve said we should be vigilant about the housing market and this Government has given the Bank of England the power and the tools to do what they felt needed to be done to help to contribute to building a resilient economy in an independent way”.

The Help to Buy scheme enables the Government to place a second charge on properties purchased under the scheme, allowing them to have some degree of profitability and allow them a small degree of control over the UK property market.

People buying property worth up to £600,000 (GBP) using a deposit of just 5% may be grateful of the Government’s help but many fail to realise the full implications of the scheme, or spot the Government tactic of controlling properties.

The Government either top up the purchasers 5% deposit with 20% of the property’s value or it will underwrite a portion of the debt allowing lenders to advance purchasers with high loan-to-value mortgages that the Government guarantee.

The £600,000 (GBP) upper limit of the Help-To-Buy scheme has been widely criticised for being too high, however, recent figures show that the average cost of a property bought using the scheme was just £148,000 (GBP).

Concerns are rife that another property bubble may be formed in the UK property market following a continuing run of positive house price trends.

Mortgage lender, Nationwide recently reported that property values had risen by 10.9% during the last 12 months, the first time annual house price inflation has reached double figures since April 2010.

Data from the Land Registry also shows that average property prices in London have already surpassed the previous 2007 peak.

Recent property price increases have caused the typical average cost of residential property in the UK to rise to £262,770 (GBP), according to Zoopla.

New regulations to control borrowing were introduced at the end of April 2014 to ensure prospective property owners are not risking taking on too much debt.

Under the Mortgage Market Review, lenders are required to carry out stringent affordability checks, including making sure borrowers can continue to meet the mortgage repayments if and when interest rates rise.

However, data on the number of mortgage approvals for residential property purchases appear to suggest that the market may be moderating, with the Bank of England reporting a dip in loan approvals for the second consecutive month during March 2014.

Top UK property expert shares lease options tool on free webinar

You may recall that we posted on Spotlight a few days ago about Simon Zutshi holding a very special no cost webinar on Monday 2nd December at 9pm which we will definitely be listening into and we recommend that all property investors should register for as well!
Why?

Well, Simon Zutshi is highly regarded as one of the top UK property investment experts in the UK, as well as being the founder of the Property Investors Network (PIN), (celebrating its 10th anniversary this month), author of the best-selling book “Property Magic” and he will be sharing, for the very first time outside of his £14,000(GBP) a year Property Mastermind Programme, a brand new tool that he has created to help property investors make money from property lease options.

With increasing property prices in many regions of the UK, it really is a great time to be investing time and money into UK property and there are numerous opportunities to be making money from lease options right now, if you can work out exactly how profitable the deals are.

The problem is that most property investors just don’t know where to start with lease options, what is more interesting is that many property investors do not know the best way to make any money using lease options even if they can find great deals!

This brand new tool has taken a while to develop and Simon is confident that it takes all of the confusion away from using options to take control of and really profit from property.

Simon has explained that this brand new tool makes it very easy to work out the most profitable way of structuring any property lease option deal and it is quick and easy to use.

All will be explained on the webinar, but places are already filling up fast and numbers are strictly limited to just 500 spaces, so property investors who want access to the same tools used by the top experts need to act quickly.

Property Investment Case Studies – Peter Singh

Real Property Investment Success By Real People

Real Property Investment Success By Real People

I have been fortunate enough to interview many successful and high profile property investors for MyPropertyPowerTeam.co.uk and there is nothing more motivating than speaking to people who have achieved property investment success against all the odds.

Last week I spoke with Multi-Let Success Strategy founder – Peter Singh, who some of you may remember from the Super Conference at Wembley stadium in March 2013.

Peter bared his soul and shared his emotional property investment journey stood on a stage in front of over 1000 super conference attendees, and I can honestly tell you that it was both moving and inspirational.

From regularly gambling away every penny he had, to being unwittingly involved in a multi-Million pound VAT fraud, for which he had to stand trial, to controlling 11 houses of multiple occupation (HMO’s) or multi let properties, generating £7,000+ (GBP) per month cashflow, in a short space of time.

Peter knew that property investment would provide him with enough income to clear his debts and set him up for life and set about arranging his first property investment deal while he was in court during the day and working night shifts in a local factory to make ends meet. Everyone he talked to about his property vision thought he was mad, including his own legal team, family and friends.

Multi-Let Success Strategy with Peter Singh

A House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) or Multi-Let is a particular type of property which is available from Estate Agents and Landlords.

A HMO is an exceptionally high cashflowing investment property!

The property is leased on a single let at a fixed monthly rental price, and then the rooms of the multi-let property are rented out individually to professional tenants.

Property investors can build a huge portfolio of these types of property by buying at discount and / or adding value by refurbishment, then refinancing the investment and replicating the process, time and time again.

There is a hitch with this type of property investment strategy though…

  • It can take a lot of money
  • It can take a lot of time
  • It is not readily scalable
  • Investors are at the mercy of the banks for money

Imagine if you could control an unlimited number of these super-cash flowing multi-let properties with no mortgage, no deposit and no credit checks…

MP’s Table New Proposals To Regulate Private Lettings Market

MP’s Table New Proposals To Regulate Private Lettings Market

Two new proposals have been individually tabled by Labour MP’s calling for the regulation of landlords and lettings agents.

Former Labour housing minister John Healey and veteran Labour backbencher, Sir Alan Meale, made the proposals in the House of Commons separately but both are calling for better regulation of the private rental sector

Mr Healey’s Bill seeks to introduce mandatory licensing for lettings and property managing agents and a ban on lettings agents charging fees and is called “The Letting Agents (Competition, Choice and Standards) Bill 2013-14”.

The objective of the proposal is to establish a national mandatory licensing scheme for lettings and managing agents, with established standards and redress for landlords, tenants and leaseholders, and prohibition of lettings and management agent fees; to enable local authorities to administer and enforce the scheme; to require that tenants, landlords and leaseholders have written agreements; and to empower local authorities, either alone or in partnership, to trade as letting and managing agents.”

Fresh Warnings Over Rent-To-Rent

Fresh Warnings Over Rent-To-Rent

Rent-To-Rent Contracts May
Breach Mortgage Agreements

National newspapers are claiming that the Rent-To-Rent strategy for maximising profits from rental properties is immoral and illegal

Private rental sector landlords who utilise a rent-to-rent strategy, by which a property investor agrees to rent a property from the owner with the intention of sub-letting it to tenants for a profit, are being urged to check with their mortgage lenders that the practice will be allowed.

The warning was printed in The Sunday Times and follows last week’s news published by The Guardian newspaper and landlord news portal LandlordToday.co.uk, on the rent-to-rent phenomenon, which drew a mixed reaction.

Some lenders will not allow sub-letting, including The Mortgage Works (TMW), although BM Solutions does permit sub-letting.
