Portfolio Growth Seminar



14/03/2017 by Mark Manning

Our first Portfolio Growth Seminar took place last week and was a great success.  Current and prospective landlords gathered to hear our experts discuss the current market conditions and outline relevant legislation changes on the horizon.

Mark Manning opened proceedings by welcoming the assembled investors, then we got down to serious business.

Mark Glenn, from our Northampton office, and Sarah French from our Daventry Lettings discussed the state of the current lettings market.  It’s busy, although the lack of stock is having an upward impact on prices.  However, they gave practical advice on which areas are proving to be a good purchase with promising yields.

Next Independent IFA Brian Juffkins talked through the mortgage arena, and outlined the best deals and products available to the property investor.  There are lots of lenders out there at the moment, as well as borrowers, so some expert advice is always welcome to ensure you have the best deal.

Insurance was our next topic, with Roland Cox from Stuart and Co giving his expert advice.  Insurance provides the investor with the ability to guarantee rent, cover legal fees and protect against damage to your investment.  Making sure you have the right cover for the right property could save you thousands.

Tax is always a hot topic in any investor discussion, and Ross Phipps led us through the myriad of legislation changes coming into force, with increases in tax liability on profits, particularly for higher rate tax payers, which are coming into force in April 2016.

Our Legal expert, Amanda Brady, from Taylor Rose, gave a thorough overview of what to expect when buying a rental property, together with a rundown of the legal responsibilities and requirements being a landlord entails.

Finally Craig McClurg, from ML Investments, gave advice on managing a wider portfolio, and the importance of not putting all your eggs in one basket.  Spreading risk across a variety of investments is essential to protect against the ebbs and flows of the market.

All our experts stayed behind afterwards to talk to our guests and share even more of their expertise. There were lots of lively conversations to be had and everyone reported back that they had found the event useful and enjoyable.


We even received feedback the very next morning.
