So why should you come along?
We all know that the private rental sector has suffered some blows in recent months. Landlords have been hit with a barrage of tax changes and new legislation, meaning it’s more important than ever that you know how to approach these challenges and optimise your investments in 2018.
The London Landlord Seminar, presented by property expert Richard Blanco, will bring together leading industry experts to give an honest insight into today’s market and how to make money from buy-to-let in these conditions.
Carla Sateriale, of UK Finance (previously the Council of Mortgage Lenders), will open the evening, summarising the latest Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) changes and why buy-to-let lenders have devised new criteria.
Searchlight Finance’s Simon Allen will then give his thoughts on how the market and lenders may react to the PRA changes, and the best options for borrowers.
Next to speak will be Portico’s Regional Director, Mark Lawrinson, who will give a round-up of the property market in 2017, before giving an interesting house price forecast and data-driven outlook for the coming year.
After the break, Lawrinson will look at growing employment and improving infrastructure to pinpoint future property hotspots, before giving a key borough analysis of rental yields and an insight into how to optimise your investment by completely ruling out void periods.
Lending has been the lifeblood of most property businesses, but changes to criteria mean that landlords need to demonstrate higher rental yields to get the 75% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgages that were the backbone of the buy-to-let market. The evening will end in a lively panel debate, where industry experts will discuss whether Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) are now the better option for landlords.
The panel will also be accepting questions from the floor, and there will be an opportunity to network with other landlords and enjoy complimentary wine and canapés.
Lawrinson comments: “With the correct planning, you can still make money from property. But, unlike pre-2007 and even the past few years, the ability to make money requires great thought and attention, rather than being able to ride a rising market.
“Landlords and investors now need to surround themselves with professional advice and support from finance and lending experts, property gurus and tax specialists. The Portico and NLA London Landlord Seminar will equip landlords with the expert knowledge and data-led insight they need to evolve and continue to make a success of buy-to-let.”
