Episodes

TPP205: What does the Housing White Paper mean for landlords  

The much anticipated white paper has landed and it seems clear that the government are keen to bring institutional investment to the rental market. Is this anything to worry about? Not necessarily and it should clamp down on rogue landlords, but it's definitely something to have you your radar.

A key point in the paper states that ‘Encouraging more institutional investors into housing, including for building more homes for private rent, and encouraging family- friendly tenancies.’ Rob and Rob discuss what this really means and what impact this may have on private landlords...

The report goes on to state that more needs to be done to prevent homelessness, but predictably the detail of how this will be done, appears to be lacking. It goes without saying that in a country as wealthy as ours, we should do a lot more to help this issue.

All in all the white paper seems to have been watered down and we can't pretend we're anything other than underwhelmed with it. There's nothing for us to be concerned about in there, but there's nothing radical here at all.

 

Stamp duty receipts soar as buy-to-let investors are undeterred by tax hike.

So, the Treasury collected 18% more stamp duty from the sale of residential properties in 2016 compared with 2015

“One in five of all homes bought in the last six months of the year were additional properties, and this raised £962m for the Treasury's coffers, representing 21% of the tax take during this period.  This amount was higher than forecast by the Office for Budget Responsibility, which had pencilled in £660m for the 2016/17 financial year.”

So if the policy was intended to raise more tax overall, it worked.

If it was meant to deter investors to benefit FTBs, it didn’t! Read more here.

TPP204: The best exit strategies for property investment  

In this episode we're looking at something pretty different for us - how to exit property!

A lot of our listeners are at the start of their property journey but it's easy to not consider how you will wrap up your portfolio when that time comes around. If you're considering this, then here are some of your options...

Never Let Go

First up is Rob B's current plan - never exit.  If you have no mortgages, can just hold forever for income then pass them on.

If you do have mortgages, you can get mortgages until much later in life than people think. Or if the properties are in a company, as long as there’s another director they can keep the mortgages going.

Advantage: Keeps the income stream going and gives you something to pass on
Disadvantage: Maybe you don’t want to be worrying about interest rates if you have mortgages, or don’t want the hassle of holding property at all

Sell some

You could instead sell enough properties to pay off the mortgage balances on the rest, then revert to the first option of holding on. If you’ve had a long period of growth you might only need to sell one property to pay off everything else.

Advantage: You’re debt-free and keep an income
Disadvantage: CGT

Sell the lot 

Liquidate everything and use the proceeds to invest in other asset classes

Advantage: You get more diversification - can take the money and allocate it across a global portfolio. No hassle from property.
Disadvantage: CGT, nothing to pass on.

A mix of the above

Sell one to pay down debts on the rest, sell a couple more to give you a lump of income to diversify across other asset classes, keep the rest for income with low mortgages.

You might even want to buy different types of property at this point, e.g. if you’ve been focusing on capital growth but now what matters most is a strong income.

Could you be a refurb case study in The Property Hub Magazine?

If you've got a refurb story then we want to know. It's easy to let us know you're interested in the possibility of being featured in the magazine, just send us an email to hello@thepropertyhub.net and Vicky will get back to you.

Barclays unveils 10-year fix buy-to-let mortgage at 2.99%

This is a heck of a rate if you do want that security. It wont be for everyone, but it will definitely be of interest to some. A note of caution though: There are some hefty penalties if you think you may want to move away from that mortgage or sell before the end of that term. Check out more on this here.

TPP203: Dont be afraid of bridging finance  

In this episode we're going to speak to our very own Rob D in the capacity of 'guest expert'  and we're going to look in depth at bridging finance...

Rob D has been focusing a lot of his investment around bridging loans rather than purchases recently, and he tells us why this has worked for him. He even started his own bridging finance company LendSwift to formalise his involvement in this sector. 

In this episode Rob & Rob explain the basics of how bridging works, when it is a good idea, and when it's to be avoided.

The Robs also discuss when you can use bridging to buy properties that you can't ordinarily raise a mortgage for, and crucially give you their golden rules of bridging.

Go to lendswift.co.uk/borrow to check out the calculators to see how much you can borrow and what it would cost. Don’t use us without shopping around, but use the tool to increase your knowledge.

TPP202: How to invest in 2017 and what to look out for  

In this week's episode we're going to look at how to invest in 2017, which is a great follow up to last week's 'where to invest in 2017' podcast.

Rob B the radio star & a news of a new RMP office

We're also bowing down to a new radio star in our midst - Rob B has been appearing on local radio in Liverpool. He's also been 'up north' looking in and around Warrington for the second RMP office - exciting stuff!

Rob D - getting things done

Rob D has had a great week too though and has been making some serious headway into writing his new book which is going to be all about lettings and management. A HUGE thank you to everyone who took up the challenge and sent over their tips, the book will be all the stronger for your input!

The Property Hub Magazine - landing now

There's a cat on the front cover, what's not to like? Subscribers will be receiving their copies very soon, and we can promise you it's a great one.

The Property Hub Meetups - next week

It's nearly time for The Meetups again and Rob B will be heading to join Roxane and the Richmond Hubbers, while Rob D will be in Stratford, East London. Find your nearest Meetup here and head along.

What's on the agenda for 2017?

Negative Media

The media just love a good dose of doom and gloom, particularly if it is property investment based. It hasn’t happened yet, but we are giving you some advanced notice. It will happen this year and if you’re not careful could suck you in. When the media gets negative we get excited, this is when the best opportunities arise. 

Tax Changes

We have covered this in some depth in the following episodes -

http://thepropertyhub.net/tpp165-tenants-and-taxes/

http://www.propertygeek.net/budget-2015-mortgage-interest-relief-changes-explained/

thepropertyhub.net/Budget2015

thepropertyhub.net/Budget2015part2

http://thepropertyhub.net/should-you-use-a-limited-company-to-invest-in-property/

The upshot is bad news for landlords who have been in the game for a long time, not so bad for new investors because they can plan.

Lettings Fee Ban

The government has just confirmed consultation will begin in a few months time, with the outcome to be announced later this year. You might not notice changes immediately after implementation, but we expect see a trend of letting agents increasing their fees to landlords.

PRA - Prudential Regulation Authority

Sounds complex, but basically all this is means is mortgage companies increasing their stress test levels. Will impact investors in the southeast, investors in the north won't notice the changes.

Article 50

Uncertainty and fear are most likely to be on the menu (again). This will spook some amateur investors, but actually the effect of brexit hard or soft will be felt years down the line.

What should you do and how should you prosper?

Avoid London Remember your goal, don’t get lost in the noise Ignore the media and most of your friends Take advantage of any uncertainty Get your tax affairs in order Get practising your smug face for a few years time Resource of the week

TPP201 Where to invest in 2017  

It's the 201st episode of The Property Podcast and this week we're focussing on where to invest in the UK this year. Some of them you may be expecting from us, but there's a couple of wildcards thrown in for good measure. Listen to find out more.

Property Geek

A quick plug for Rod D's Property Geek Podcast - the latest episode talks about new mortgage rules which haven’t had much coverage elsewhere. Take a listen to get up to date. 

Rents are hitting an 'affordability ceiling'

Rob D chose this news story because it proved him right (again). The idea is that rents are getting so high in some areas that if they go up any further, tenants wont afford them, which will only produce more void periods in the end. Rents can't just rise forever as salaries are not rising at the same rate. This is obviously more of an issue in places such as London where tenants are reportedly paying up to 75% of their disposable income on rent. Check out the article here.

TPP198: 2016 in review  

If you're listening to this during that in-betweeny time between Christmas and New Year then well done you - that is hardcore podcast listening!

News

This would usually be news this week but is in fact more news of the whole year. We'll start with what's happened with us. We launched a gorgeous new website for The Property Hub, full of courses, info, and a fab forum. If you don't use it to do more than listen to the podcast then please go check it out.

Our Magazine subscribers doubled this year and it's fair to say we're delighted with the publication we put out. Our team work incredibly hard on this and it must be pretty good to be doubling it's subscribers this year. If you're still not a subscriber then you can sign up right here so you don't miss a single copy in 2017. We have a new features editor, some new big-hitting writers starting in the new year, and we're so excited with what is to come.

The Meetups have grown from a handful in 2015 to over 35 regular monthly events, and this has been entirely down to Abbey, Vicky and The Meetup Leaders who have helped to grow this project. If you're yet to come along to your local Meetup then please do come along and say hi, we'll be popping up at as many Meetups as possible to say hello in 2016.

We also held a Northern Summit and whilst our plans are not quite nailed down just yet - we are sure we'll do something in the North in 2017. Meanwhile there may be a couple of tickets available for the London Summit in February, but be quick because these could sell out any time now - check here to see if there are still tickets available.

News this week

This is the year that will be remembered for bringing us Brexit and Trump - and the truth is that any personal opinions aside, we're not scared of either. This is definitely not a time to be fearful if you know your stuff. We'll have a new course out in the next few weeks which is all about how the market may progress, so look out for that as it will definitely cover any potential impact of these big events.

Bigger news (in property at least) were the stamp duty changes for people with second homes and beyond - so basically all BTL investors. This one was particularly hard on investors in the South East. Definitely a big event for the property investment market.

What next for The Robs?

Rob D has committed to writing a new book (feel free to chase him up on that), we're going to up our game massively in social media (which wouldn't be hard to be fair!). Our social media channels will be bringing you really interesting content in 2017, so please watch this space and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

We have another big announcement or two which we hope you will love but we can't say any more about these for now. You'll just have to keep listening throughout the new year to find out more.

Resource of the week

There can only be one resource of the week this week. It's not new, but it is vital. It's the best time of year for setting goals and there is no better way than with our Goal Setting Course. Check it out here.

TPP197: Our favourite things of 2016  

Nobody can deny that 2016 has been a weird year for the world, but it's been a good year for us in general. This week's episode is a run down of the things we have loved in the past twelve months.

News this week

 

Shock - as BTL is over (apparently). This news story has some pretty depressing statistics attached to it, and if you read just the first paragraph it's not great news! But (as you probably suspected) there's a bit more to this! The statistics used are not exactly thorough, with data coming from only one firm of estate agents.

An excellent reminder of why we should always read beyond the headlines.

Resource of the week

This episode is really one long resource of the week list, so if that's your favourite part of The Property Podcast, then keep listening.

“Richard Donnell, insight director at Hometrack, said he expected Oxford and Cambridge to see falls in growth similar to that in London.

“The impetus for house price growth is shifting from the affordability-constrained cities in southern England to cities in the midlands and the north of England,” he sad. “Regional cities have more attractive affordability levels and house prices have significant potential upside for growth in the near term subject to the outlook for the economy.”
