How to protect my unencumbered properties?

How to protect my unencumbered properties?

I have over 30 properties in total of which I own 8 outright, and rest are on Buy to Let mortgages.

I am looking for some advice on how to protect the 8 I own outright in the unlikely prospect of an increase in mortgage rates like we had back in the 70s ( I think) so the mortgage company would not be able to touch them ?

Regards

If you were considering transferring the 8 properties to someone else to keep them out of a potential bankruptcy be aware that a trustee in bankruptcy can apply to the courts to have gifts or transactions at an undervalue set aside for up to 5 years afterwards.

On the transfer there would be a potential stamp duty and or capital gains tax liability arising.

We have all heard of " all is fair in love & war " I feel business should be added to this.

Hi Tony,

It might be worth investigating Trusts. We've got an aticle on the subject with Oliver Pughe from Penguin Wealth coming up in the April issue of Your Property Network that might be of interest.

Personally I would look very carefully at if it was possible to sell all but 10 properties and live of the income from these properties for the rest of your life. Hence not being a slave to the banks anymore. Cutting your cost of living and therefore being able to reduce the member of properties with mortgages, may work well.

“The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” I am choosing to make myself a “servant to the lender” at present, but hope I will be wise enough to know when I should buy my freedom, by selling up some properties.

Even 10 lots of the 1 bed rent for Birmingham (as an example) allowing 25% for costs, put you in the top 25% of earners in the UK. Maybe if you wish to sleep at night, you should not be as greedy...

But I was assuming you would keep your 10 BEST properties.... So do a lot better then this.
