Looking to buy to let?

By Shannon Lynch - 09 May 2017

Despite recent changes to both Stamp Duty and Mortgage Interest Relief linked to those buying to let, it still proves to be an attractive alternative compared to other mainstream types of investment. Returns offered on savings by many banks and building societies are negligible yet properties which are rented out generate monthly income and provide potential Capital Growth as property goes up in value over time.

For many the thought of entering this sector of the market can prove daunting mainly due to not really understanding all that’s involved. However Beresfords retain a specialist buy to let team who have been offering advice now for many years. They provide ‘hands on’ support throughout the entire process and will advise what type of property to buy and where.

Once successful Beresfords then market the property for the landlord, source suitable tenants, conduct stringent referencing and can manage the tenancy whilst they are in occupation. This proves ideal for those landlords wanting to invest but do not want to get too involved with every day matters.

We have included a few current buy to let options and if you want to explore the concept in more detail then why not contact our buy to let team for a confidential discussion without obligation.
