This week we have another video for you. There is some interesting opinions here about buy to let properties and the effect that the changes made by the UK government are having on property investors. The video does refer to London quite a lot but the principles can be applied anywhere in the UK.
There are some alternative suggestions to the conventional buy to let properties. These include HMO’s and commercial property. This is not supposed to be a training course on property investment but some of the advice is well worth noting. These guys are active in the property investment space so they know what they are talking about.
It has to be said that this is a typical video about property investment in the UK that is doing the rounds at the moment. The landscape has changed in the last ten years because of the financial crisis and it is true that it is tougher to obtain buy to let mortgages now but it is not as difficult as this guy makes it out to be.
The government changes are certainly real and higher stamp duty, capital gains tax and all of the other measures need to factored in to your property investment plan. But there are still opportunities for property investment success if you are smart and look hard enough.
Is it likely that the property investment business will get easier or more difficult? Well that is really hard to predict. It is unlikely that the government will hit property investors again for a while, but lending institutions could make obtaining funds more difficult if there are a high number of defaulters.
