The Increasing Need For Student Property

Student Property: Just How Great Is

The Need For It?

When it comes to tactical property investment, it would appear that the UK student property sector could be one of the shrewdest and lucrative choices property investors can make right now.

In 2013 over £2 Billion (GBP) was pumped into the student rental sector by savvy property investors who calculated the increased potential yields were well worth the risks.

This is because demand for student accommodation is at a record high and seems almost certain to continue increasing due to the growing number of UK and overseas university applications being made by prospective students and the increasing number of places being offered on courses by universities in order to attract student interest.

The UK is the current leading host country for attracting international students, with higher demand for places from foreign students than the USA, making our nation the world’s unopposed central student hub, and with good reason, our higher education system is among one of the best in the world, so it is of little wonder that many world leaders are choosing to send their children here to give them a head start in life. And the way current demand for university places is growing suggests that this top education status will not be changing any time soon.

Year on year there has been an increasing number of international students seeking a decent place to live, among fellow undergraduates, while they embark on their studies. Property investors are looking for properties within the

This means that in many UK university towns and cities, market rental prices will inevitably increase due to the increased demand for dedicated student properties, and property investors are virtually guaranteed to see a quick return on their investments because of the overwhelming need for their services.

Yields in student housing are 5-6% higher on average than the standard residential property in the private rental sector returns are well worth the effort.

Looking For A Buy To Let Mortgage?

Quarter Of Potential Property Investors Don’t Know How To Apply For Buy To Let Mortgages

New Research Discovers That Quarter Of Potential Property Investors Don’t Even Know How To Apply For Buy To Let Mortgages

New research by a specialist mortgage lender has discovered that an amazing 28% of would-be property investors don’t know how to apply for a buy to let mortgage in order to finance their property purchases.

The figures show that 1 in 4 potential property investors considering investing in property to boost their retirement income don’t know how to apply for a buy-to-let mortgage to get started on their property investment journey.

The research, conducted by specialist mortgage lender Kensington, also found that 54% of people approaching retirement age would consider investing in property using buy-to-let mortgages in order to help increase their income in retirement, but many didn’t know what they needed to do or what evidence to provide in order to apply for the correct type of mortgage.

Are Your Rental Properties Ready For Christmas?

Are Your Rental Properties Ready For Christmas?

Landlords Urged To Ensure Rental Properties Remain Occupied over Christmas Holidays

This is the time of year when most amateur property investors and landlords start to wind down ready to enjoy the festive session, whilst the more professional property investors and portfolio landlords start planning their goal setting for 2015.

However, there is one thing that landlords need to make sure of over the festive holidays – Will their rental properties be occupied for the whole of Christmas and New Year?

If tenants are going to be away over the Christmas period then they need to make sure that the landlord or their letting agent is aware, because the majority of rental property problems happen during the winter months, with the highest concentration of issues recorded over the Christmas and New Year holidays, especially if the tenants decide turn off the central heating in order to save money while they are away.

Bigger problems can also occur if the tenant decides to notify the whole world on social media sites that they are going away on holiday or to visit family and their rental properties will be empty!

The last thing landlords need is a call from your tenants or their neighbours because they think your rented property has been burgled, so any broken doors or windows will need repairing quickly, the same goes for tackling burst pipes!

Beware Of The Rogue Traders,

There are a number of rogue traders back in the property investment community as the UK property market picks up pace again following the financial crisis that saw all but the most serious property investors continue to purchase properties.

The emergence of rogue traders and dodgy dealers is nothing new in property investment industry as scammers try to part willing investors with their savings by offering property deals that don’t stack up, costly property investment educational courses and worthless seminars and workshops designed to provide some cover for a high pressure pitch fest full of ill conceived propaganda designed to trigger reckless spending.

 Avoid Committing Mortgage Fraud

Avoid Committing Mortgage Fraud

How To Guard Against Mortgage Fraud

Following fresh warnings from the National Fraud Authority about the rising level of mortgage fraud in the UK, lenders want more done to protect their interests.

Mortgage fraud was a widespread problem before the financial meltdown and collapse of the property market back in 2007/8 due to the availability of self- certification mortgages with buyers, brokers and mortgage advisers able to ‘self-declare’ earnings with little, if any, proof required by an industry too busy to carry out proper rules and checks on applicants.

Mortgage fraud costs the industry around £1 Billion (GBP) a year, leading the Financial Conduct Authority to want to instruct mortgage lenders to better acquaint themselves with the solicitors they work with.

The new stricter mortgage rules introduced in the Mortgage Market Review in April 2014 are intended to reduce the number of people who attempt to make false claims and self-certification mortgages are now a thing of the past.

However, this won’t stop mortgage fraud or prevent homeowners and property investors from being a victim of identity or registration fraud.

2014 UK Property Prices To Increase Further

2014 UK Property Prices To Increase Further

UK Property Prices Continue To Increase

There could be more good news for UK property investors over the coming months as projections for the rest of 2014 indicate that property prices are set to rise even more, providing the potential of greater Return On Investments (ROI).

Since the UK housing market crash in 2008, UK property prices slumped and were depressed for some time afterwards due to uncertainty in the economy, however, the end of 2013 saw the UK property market spring back to life.

According to data from the Halifax House Price Index (HPI), there were over 1 Million residential property transactions in 2013 for the first time since 2007, and residential property sales increased for the ninth month in a row in December 2013,  30% higher than in 2012.

The data from Halifax is great news for property owners and shows that the UK property market is well and truly back on its feet.  So, if you’re a property investor who is planning on investing in property in 2014, you can expect to see property prices continuing to rise.

2014 started with residential property prices on the increase and more people buying and selling. The introduction of the 2nd phase of the Government’s Help-To-Buy scheme in October 2013 allowed property purchasers to get 95% Loan-To-Value (LTV) mortgages, heralding the return of the first-time buyer to the UK property market.
