What services do we offer?The only London property finder, manager and developer you will need.
My Property Consultant can help you with all of your London property needs, whether it’s finding the best place to invest, sourcing the right property for you, or managing your property and your tenants.
We offer various levels of service, depending on your specific requirements.
Here is an outline of how it works:
- We find a suitable property in London that has the best buy-to-let potential, good development potential, or both
- We manage the purchase of the property on your behalf (dealing with estate agents, solicitors, conveyancers, mortgage brokers etc)
- If there is development potential, we can instruct an architect, organise planning permission, source reliable builders and manage all of this to a high standard of completion
- We organise any straightforward refurbishments to an agreed budget
- We can organise furniture and fittings to an agreed budget
- Upon completion, we arrange the sale/letting of your property, depending on your preference
- We can help arrange all finance on your behalf
- We work for you – no one else. We’re not tied to any agency, broker or building firm
Find you a London property
If you’re wanting to invest in the London property market, let us help you. We’ll find you a suitable investment property, in the best place to invest for your budget. We’ll then work, on your behalf, with estate agents, mortgage brokers and solicitors until the sale is completed. If you want to manage the property yourself, we will make sure it is ready to rent, including the arrangement of all relevant safety certificates. We can also arrange any decorating, furnishing and professional cleaning (at an extra cost) if required.
Manage your property
Once your property has been bought and prepped for rental, or if you already have a property you would like managed, you can instruct us to find tenants and manage any ongoing issues for you. We’ll arrange tenancy agreements and referencing of tenants, and can organise a professional inventory and professional cleaning on your behalf. We offer a highly personalised and trusted service that is up to 44% cheaper than most high street estate agents.
Develop your property
If you’re keen to add immediate value to a property, we can help you find the ideal development opportunity. We will source the property, oversee the development works, and bring your property back to market (either for sale or letting) as quickly as possible. This may be the installation of new bathrooms, kitchens, or a complete re-fit of the property.
For larger projects such as adding floor space (usually bedrooms and bathrooms), we work with architects and planning officials to get approval of the proposals. We will then oversee the building process through to completion of the project.
If you want to let the property out, we can also take care of the ongoing management for you.
If you live outside of the UK, but still want to invest in the London property market, we offer the same services as above. The rules and regulations may differ depending on your circumstances, especially where mortgage finance and the legal framework is concerned. We would be happy to discuss your circumstances, seek advice on your behalf, and deliver a proposal that works for you.
Not a day goes by without some sort of property related headline, usually driven by the release of a new set of data from a property related company. But sometimes that data can paint a confusing and contradictory picture. One day they’re telling us that prices are going up, the next they’re telling us we’re facing a market slowdown.
This weekend marks the end of January. How on earth did that happen? Before we know it, it’s going to be April, and a number of new tax rules will be introduced. One of which is the increase in stamp duty for buy-to-let landlords.
If you’ve been thinking about investing in a buy-to-let, but have never managed to take the plunge, read on. Here’s our top five reasons why we (and our happy customers) think now is a great time to be investing in the London buy-to-let market….
Last week, the buy-to-let industry was handed a potentially damaging blow by George Osbourne in his Autumn Statement. Stamp duty for buy-to-lets is set to increase by a surcharge of 3% over standard rates. This is in addition to the further changes that he announced in his budget…
It’s safe to say the Chancellor won’t be on many landlords’ Christmas card lists this year. Both the 2015 budget & the most recent Autumn Statement, saw Mr Osborne targeting the buy-to-let sector, making various changes to taxation in the hope of stifling the increase in this market & creating a more level playing field…
The Government has recently announced two key changes that will affect your position as a buy-to-let landlord. Further information from the Government is expected, but here are the high-level details as MPC understand them, and how the changes might affect you…
