All landlords require financial advice from time to time, I’ve listed some of the many reasons below. My question to readers of Property118 though is how you select an adviser? Do you want to be able to meet them or do your prefer to communicate by phone or internet? Do you prefer to work with people who are landlords themselves? Is age, sex, cultural background a deciding factor?
These are the some of the areas I’ve sought financial advice in the past:-
- Mortgage advice
- Estate planning and IHT
- Capital Gain Tax
- Income tax
- Other tax planning and deferral/avoidance schemes
- Life Insurance
- Landlords building and contents
So, back to my question, how you you decide who to work with when you want financial advice?
