We need to wake up and smell the coffee!

Shelter might not be very good at providing any shelter but they are really good at raising cash. Great business really, a lot easier and way more lucrative than being a landlord. Hold on, i meant great charity since it gives away 90% of its money to the homeless right?... Read More

Since the alliance is still new and small, how about giving it a chance. The other “professional” landlord associations seem to have done very little to date so a new approach is very welcome.

Advice needed on re-finance of inherited properties?

Hi Nikki, difficult to give advice based on the limited information, but i would say you need to prioritise the refurbishment and to get the properties in a good condition ASAP. I can see you may have limited time and money, but try to get friends(especially trades or with diy skills) to help. Try to do as much as you can yourself to keep costs down, for the rest you should take a loan just to get it finished. Then the properties will be more rentable and create another income for you and be more attractive to lenders. Or you have the option to sell, but to get the best price and sell quicker, always best to market the property in good condition - so either way, get them renovated. It may help to focus on one at a time, then you will also have some income to help with the next one. Good luck!!... Read More
