Property Is Not The Answer...

Recommended Posts

Property is not the answer to the UK's retirement plight.

The FT's economics editor has written a very interesting article in today's FTfm supplement (I couldn't find a link to it on their site).

If anyone else can find it and post a link, I think it is a good read.

Anyway, he goes into some the detail of residential property/Sipps (at the risk of driving people insane with yet more talk of Sipps) and suggests there are only a few real solutions to our retirement issues... save more, pay more tax, live more frugally on retirement etc.

Apparently BTL is not going to rescue us.

There were some details on annuities, inheritance tax etc that he suggests puts up potentially big problems for Sipp-holders.
