Foreign Property Income but no UK tax return?

Hi Nigel,
The requirements can be a nightmare to deal with yourself if you don't know it all.... I have property in both the UK and Aus (reside in Aus) and would not even consider attempting to deal with the tax on the foreign properties myself. I recommend you not only use an accountant, but a specialist who also understands the tax system. I use an Aussie company (GMTax) who do both aussie and UK tax returns, they are a specialist in this field and would be well worth contacting.
Good Luck.... Read More

The house needs to be fully furnished to a high standard - recommend having your chosen agent advise on what furniture to provide (double/single/twin beds etc).
It definitely has it's benefits and you end up maintaining the property really well so know its in a good condition for you when you want it back, the rental rates are great (mine was Devon). But it doesn't suit everyone and there is a high start up cost.... Read More

Is there an alternative to selling?

Reply to the comment left by Richard U at 23/10/2017 - 13:01
You will need to speak to the lender. I am the freehold owner and lease owner of 2 flats (converted house with just the 2 flats). I have just one mortgage covering the both properties. This will only be a pain if/when I come to sell, but was a means to buying both at the same time relatively hassle free!... Read More
