Weekly Property News


  • The Winter Economy Plan: The Government have announced at New Jobs Support Scheme and extension tp self-employment income support with over £1 million businesses also receiving extra flexibility in paying back Government loans. With the end of the furlough scheme predicted to cause many household difficulties in paying rents these measures will help to combat this as private landlords across England have faced rental losses of up to £437 million as a result of COVID-19. The Government should follow hardship loan schemes set up in Scotland and Wales to help support tenants to pay their rent as a result of the COIVD-19 pandemic and landlords are now seeking out Government-backed tenant income to ensure rent is paid through schemes such as supported living and housing benefits.

  • Landlord Today: Capital gains tax changes could result in landlords paying less, not more tax. Historically capital gains tax is not applied on all profits, only those that are above standard measures of inflation. If the Government is to reform capital gains tax regulations then they need to reintroduce a form of inflammatory relief, meaning a potential benefit for most landlords that purchased property in the 1990s and 2000s.

  • What do you do when a property purchase is down-valued? There has been an upsurge in property prices due to furlough, people moving out of the cities, an influx of foreign money coming into the UK, stamp duty holidays etc, however, lenders who value the property are concerned about a downturn in the market in 2021 and are assessing the property from a safe loan to value metric, not simply how much is the property worth. Also, remember that if you’re purchasing a property and it is downvalued that is a net=benefit to you as the investor.

“The Government should follow hardship loan schemes set up in Scotland and Wales to help support tenants to pay their rent as a result of the COIVD-19 pandemic.”
“A lot of landlords are looking for Government-backed income through new schemes such as supported living and housing benefit tenants to ensure rent is paid”
“You’ve always got to have income coming in no matter what is happening in the current economic climate.”
“There are interesting times ahead with how the Government is going to try to recoup all of that furlough money.”

How Much Money is EVER Enough?
Do you ever find yourself wanting more money and wondering, when will it ever be enough? Join Rob today as he discusses how you can know how much money is enough for you and your goals. Discover how to become financially opulent, how to work out the overheads needed for your ideal lifestyle and how to invest your money wisely.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  Think about your desired lifestyle. Do you want to be financially secure, financially free or do you want to be financially opulent? Being financially opulent means you are able to do what you want when you want, however this comes with huge responsibilities and massive costs.    There are two types of income when it comes to how much is enough; Capital and Income. Capital is the cash that you have as the asset and the income is the stream that is kicked off from the capital. The capital can be held in cash and give you a low level return. You can take your capital, turn this into assets and get leverage on those. To be financially opulent, you need both capital and income.    Work out your ideal lifestyle and what the overhead of this would  be. Itemize your expenditures for both your current and ideal lifestyle. When you are doing your personal overhead, be realistic and generous with your current expenditure and how much it would cost monthly to live your ideal lifestyle.    You need to invest your money wisely in order to see returns. Use Hargreaves Lansdown investment service to learn how to self-invest into your ISA , invest in diverse stocks or even property investment to get a higher return.    The capital that you are investing into assets should be preserved. Many people save but quickly spend. Preserve and grow the capital because the capital is what creates the income whether leveraged or unleveraged. Save those lumps of capital and protect them in ISAs, stocks or investments.   BEST MOMENTS    “Capital creates security and income. “   “You want to invest your capital wisely.”   “A million should give you  £50,000 per year.”   “Don’t erode, spend or slay the golden goose that is laying the golden eggs. You mustn't erode your capital, you must increase your capital.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The 7 Excuses That Could Stop You Investing
In this week's show Simon discusses the seven most common reasons or excuses he hears, for people not wanting to begin their property investment journey, and why with just a little insight and re-framing, you can overcome any of them! KEY TAKEAWAYS Many see a lack of capital upfront as a stumbling block, but there are many creative strategies out there that require no money to get going. Deal sourcing on behalf of others is a superb way of making money for yourself, building relationships with investors, and helping to build a more robust knowledge base for yourself. Everyone has 24 hours in a day. If others can find the time to create wealth and others can't? It all comes down to making the decision to take action, and making this action a priority. Work with motivated sellers - finding them is key. Only buy properties in areas with strong rental demand. Only buy properties that can provide you with cash-flow today! And remember that you're buying for the long term, and always have a cash-buffer. BEST MOMENTS 'These might seem like very valid reasons, but they're really just excuses' 'There are creative strategies where you don't need to put in a lot of money' 'It boils down to a lack of knowledge, and a lack of mind-set and belief' 'Learning how to find really good deals is one of the best things you can do'   VALUABLE RESOURCES Property Magic: How to Buy Property Using Other People's Time, Money and Experience by Simon Zutshi To find your local pin meeting visit: and use voucher code PODCAST to attend you first meeting as Simon's guest (instead of paying the normal £20). iphone: Android Register at Mindset For Property at -  ABOUT THE HOST Simon Zutshi, experienced investor, successful entrepreneur and best-selling author, is widely recognised as one of the top wealth creation strategists in the UK.

Doug Lemov – The Coach’s Guide to Teaching #160
Today we are joined on the Brain Booster by a VERY special guest Doug Lemov. Doug is a former teacher and school principal. He helped found Uncommon Schools, a network of high performing schools in under privileged communities. His book ‘Teach like a champion 2.0’ describes techniques used by exceptional teachers. It has sold more than a million copies and been translated into a dozen languages. His other books include ‘Perfect Practice : 42 Rules for getting better and ‘Reading Reconsidered’. He played football at Hamilton college where he says he was the worst player of the decade! His latest book which we discuss today is called ‘The Coach’s Guide to Teaching’ Doug has had a major influence on many teachers around the world and our discussion today can only help you in your quest to be better at ANYTHING. We had a wonderful chat around some key elements of Doug’s book. Most notably the area around ‘forgetting’. As coaches and players we ignore this crucial element at our peril. The fact is we forgot most things. Most of our learning does not stick. To be efficient on the field of play learning needs to be embedded into our long term memory. We want and need to be on auto pilot to be able to perform at our best. Trying to hold strategy in short term memory is a poor way to perform. Doug reveals some brilliant strategies to make learning stick. To make your training session more effective. This is so important to consider. A great session with a great teacher!!
