I started property investing 5 years ago and despite making some mistakes along the way (and learning from them) I did quite well. My activities were part-time as I have a busy main career and a Daughter who is unwell. I often lacked time (or energy) to address shortcomings which I knew were costing me hundreds of pounds a month. No doubt this meant the project didn't flourish as much as it could have done. I eventually came to the realisation that I needed to rely upon the (paid) expertise of others and that this outlay would pay for itself. Unfortunately the numerous experts I engaged to date have all proved to be disappointing after I started dealing with them and then Section 24 happened (along with 2nd home SDLT and borrowing restrictions). The pattern of disappointing experts eventually broke when I engaged Mark Alexander. It was obvious from the articles on this website that he had the right balance of the skills I needed to adopt a plan to mitigate the effects of Section 24. Through my own research (a lot of it based upon the content on this website) I thought I had come up with a good plan. Nevertheless I decided to engage Mark's consultancy service for a 2nd opinion. Having checked the numbers he confirmed that part of my strategy was sound thereby instilling me with the confidence I was looking or. The other part of my strategy whilst also sound he managed to improve upon. He also put me in touch with recommended experts whom I could approach to progress the strategy. He was amiable, professional, responsive and spoke with fervour that was infectious! The consultation cost me £400 inc VAT but in actuality I am paying £240 as of course his consultation is a tax-deductible expense. That was money well spent.

I used Mark for advice on minimising my tax liability and the best way to structure future additions to my property portfolio. Very happy with the service offered, would highly reccomend.

I have had a consultation with Mark recently and after two years of anxiety, worrying about the viability of a substantial 20 year old business, I am completely relieved after receiving his guidance. After taking advice from other professionals, I was left with the thought I had no option but to sell up as the new tax rules would make my business inoperable. To have to call 'time' on a business I have put so much time and effort into, and enjoy hugely, would have been heartbreaking. I am delighted to discover there are completely legitimate options open to me (which I was unaware of, despite seeking advice from other resources) to protect my portfolio and keep it solvent for the foreseeable future. I am also benefiting from referrals he has given me regarding legal restructuring of my business. Without a doubt, the consultation I had with him is the most valuable I have ever had. Thank you Mark!

Mark took the time to read through my circumstances and prepare a detailed response to my questions. I was able to focus my future property investments based on the back of his advice with a plausible exit strategy. As my portfolio grows, there will be a need to consistently seek further advice at each milestone and I believe Mark is the man to turn to in such situations. I admire his patience and practical approach to the profession, it was well worth the investment. I look forward to consulting Mark again going forward.

All the best,

Hi Mark, I really enjoyed our meeting today and your advice was extremely beneficial. As a newcomer to the industry I have been a little unsure on how to expand without taking undue risk; After our meeting I had a clear strategy to start and progress my portfolio. The consultation was nice and relaxed, I will certainly be looking to book again in 6 months time to review progress.

My telephone conversations with Mark were extremely beneficial and an eye opener. It is very rare to find someone with real life life experience of making business gains from investments in property and also the ability to communicate strategies succinctly.

My whole perception about investing in property has changed as a result of just one hour with Mark. It's made me realise that it's not just about being a portfolio landlord with multiple properties and treating tenants well but also about having a business perspective on every investment and knowing what deals to buy and sell, having a formula for speculation and a strategy for holding on to properties for long term investment and income.

I would recommend Mark to anyone who needs a mentor and solid fact based advice.

Thanks Jonathan, I am very excited for you with regards to your future plans. I look forward to discussing your progress and the next stage of your property journey when we meet again in 6 months time.

You have already achieved superb results from the connections you have made and from the relationships you have built in respect of managing your HMO portfolio and property developments. It is reassuring for me to know that despite this you feel that you got sufficient value out of our meeting to be looking forward to the next one 🙂
