Paul Lewis doesn't like to alarm his core audience...don't expect any predictions of falls in prices. Prices only go up and all is well in the world.

Be aware of anyone who has a personal interest in property rents and prices to keep increasing over and above inflation, living costs, and interest rates......some have put most of their eggs in the land and property basket.;)

Me too - she's insufferable.

I don't thing the world really needs the kind of 'balance' that the producer of 'the Buy-to-let Show' is going to bring.

For nice middle aged public sector workers who are about retire on an unfunded pension, paid for by the current batch of young pople without a pension, buying a BTL to get second take on the youngsters money and then insisting the tax payer i..e young bail out the bank that lent them the BTL money when it goes tits up.

Stnuc.

Default on all unfunded public sector pensions/

Move the BBC to pay as you view model. They'd get 5p a week fro me on their current output.

Heres a summary:

"Prices could fall, but they fell in NI and now they are going back up again, so you should just buy now after all its a long term investment and they always go up again eventually. Interest rates are low so you can afford it"

If this is the BBC's idea of balanced reporting we are FCUKed as a democracy

....well the kind of people who work for the BBC, a service paid for by all are the kind of people who with a reasonably secure and regular work if good enough, would have a vested interest in property prices rising not falling......they would be looked on more favorably than most when securing any kind of mortgage debt.;)

What a fascinating clip into the insights of the average British speculator. Quite telling how the Professional Financial Adviser, Sherrill George (the black lady), was dressed in Professional attire, spoke intelligently and articulately about the virtues of balance, diversification and liquidity ("what's liquidity?" asked the so-called "expert" host). Whereas the BTL disciple, with her pink hair and bangly ear-rings, looked more like a gypsy.

They fell 60% in NI. 

60% ffs. There are literally tens of thousands of people who won't see prices recover in thelifetime of the mortgage. 30 plus years just to get back to the same price you bought at. 30 years of paying interest on a crazy bubble debt. An "investment" my hole.

And the kicker, zero wage inflation. Last decent pay rise without kicking up a fuss or quiting was 2007. You're not seeing that money again if there is a correction.

I have said this before but low interest rates do not help buyers (they help owners who never want to move up the chain). 

A) Low interest rates make it harder to save for a deposit

B') They mean you need a larger deposit

C) It means the chances repayments rise by a lot are higher and can be a lot harder to deal with.

D) It makes distressed sellers a lot less ready to sell.

 

I hope no one needs me to explain the maths behind this.

In the YouTube clip Faulkner suggests that leveraged landlords are typical at 50% LTV when the purchase happens. That's sounds very dubious to me; most lenders' accounts, where they make the disclosures, show that the whole book is at 60% LTV. I'd be stunned if Faulkner is correct.

It's human nature. If you can hop up the food chain, then you will and spend more on the trimmings. Same applies vice versa.

Was listening to Radio 4 Money box last night but in the last minute of the show Paul mentioned that in the next show they would be discussing something about buy-to-let, unfortunately the radio crackled just as he said this and I didn't hear what it was that he said. Can anyone enlighten me as to what he said they would be discussing in the next episode?

 

Thanks in advance

Well spotted Crazypabs- they're  to discuss Buy-to-Let on the Wednesday show I think- could be worth a listen... or even an email snowstorm in to the show beforehand

Probably just have Jamie Fraser from 118/Tenant Tax on there for the third time running.

James has been getting his tenants on You and yours. One on the 21 November 2016 (James also appeared), another on 3 March 2017.

The November report was pretty solid (Henry Pryor bring a sense of reality to proceedings and some fairly sharp questions from Winifred Robinson).

The March report was a bag of shite.

Yes, my mistake, thank you. He's the go to guy for You and Yours not Money Box. Funny really, as I believe this kind of campaigning would be a breach of his Stevenage Councillor Code of Conduct if not declared.
