It’s widely acknowledged the U.K. housing market is broken.  Even the government recognises that it needs to be repaired. So, in this episode we’re going to share our ideas of how things could be improved.  We talk about the legal system, stamp duty and what the government can and should be doing to not only stop making things work, but actually start to fix it.

NEWS THIS WEEK

We’ve got 2 news stories this week and both echo our thoughts on this week’s topics.

 

First is a report about plans to reduce the huge costs of buying a freehold - this bold idea could be a game changer, but as usual there’ll be strong opposition.

 

The second story investigates why housing transactions have slumped.  It seems equity release is on the rise.  Does this mean more people are simply staying put?

There are landlords and then there are Super-Landlords.  

 

In issue 13 (May 2018) of The Property Hub Magazine, our cover story was “Supersized - The Landlord heavyweights on Success and Regrets".  In it we spoke to serial landlords who have built very sizeable portfolios. Phil Stewardson and his brother Mark were a couple of the Super-Landlords we spoke to.  We couldn’t resist asking Phil to join us on The Property Podcast and he was extremely gracious with his time and knowledge.

NEWS THIS WEEK

There is talk about proposals to give tenants minimum 3 year tenancies.  The government argues that it’ll give renters more security, but there are reports that some landlords appear to be furious.  Is the sky falling again or is it all a storm in a teacup?
