[fa icon="calendar'] 23-May-2016 13:34:48 / by Brett Alegre-Wood

“The best property investors aren’t born, they’re made.”

That’s one of the first things one of my mentors drilled into me. What he really meant was that I needed to learn about the market, how to spot a good property investment, and the red flags that would stop me from sinking my hard earned cash into the Money Pit (still one of my favourite films!)

Buy-to-let property investors will face new affordability tests, Bank of England decides.

[fa icon="calendar'] 30-Mar-2016 10:03:43 / by Brett Alegre-Wood

Don't be put off by the fear mongering, most investors will be unaffected.

In the continuance of the full blown battle against small landlords and property investors the Bank and England has released guidance for lenders of buy-to-let mortgages.

It’s said that if adopted, the new rules could reduce lending to landlords by up to 20% over the next three years.

[fa icon="calendar'] 14-Jul-2012 12:00:00 / by Brett Alegre-Wood

Hey guys,

It's disappointing when you type 'YPC group scam' into Google and find that other pathetic investment companies have used these keywords in order to entice you to their site.

There are many companies out there that are providing training, seminars, courses that offer you the fast track to property investment. The fast track to property in my books is certainly something that is worthwhile, but at what price?
