This week on The Property Podcast, buy-to-let is dead apparently. So will this be The Robs last ever podcast?!
Firstly, before we get into today’s podcast episode, we want to say thank you for all the lovely and positive feedback we’ve received over the last couple of weeks in terms of Property Hub Mortgages.
And on the back of that, Rob D would like to give a special shoutout to his mortgage broker, Amy at Keys Mortgages, who recently got him out of a sticky situation.
She’s a prime example of what a good mortgage broker looks like, so give it a listen to find out just what Rob D had gotten himself into.
Now onto this week’s episode, recently there’s been a lot of click bait headlines on the internet stating that buy-to-let is dead, but having nothing to back the statement up in the articles.
But this week, Money Week brought out an article headlining; ‘the death of buy-to-let property’ and it actually had a bit of substance to it. So we thought that we needed to address it.
And that’s exactly what we do in this episode. So, is buy-to-let really dead and is this goodbye? Tune in to find out...
For this week’s Hub Extra we’re bringing you Freetrade. It’s an app that’s available on both Apple and Android and allows you to buy and sell stock shares for free. Usually investing in shares involves a hefty commission fee when you buy and sell which can wipe out any gains you make. So if you decide to have a dabble, let us know if you’re successful, but remember to be sensible with it, we’re not liable for your actions.
In the news this week, not a news article, but a gentle reminder that the lettings and landlord fee ban comes into play at the end of the week! It’s already had an effect with some letting agents shutting down and some landlords saying that their fees have gone up to cover the loss. Someone got in touch and said that their fees have changed by a huge £500 per month!
