Ok You Guys Do You Fancy Some Sport?

Recommended Posts

I love this:

people who say buy-to-let is dead are simply wrong. they're wrong because i'm doing very well through it and i started less than 3 years ago, but i'm very careful and i don't look to make a profit out of my rental income so i can charge low rent which makes it easy for me to avoid voids. make my profit out of remorgaging......you don't pay tax on debt which makes it ideal

This guy will have serious cash flow or equity problems as soon as things turn.

i don't look to make a penny on the 15k i have invested through rental income, i can't my mortages are so high and i charge low rent so its easy to get tenants. i'll maintain the property and i guess in a few years i'll remortgage. shortterm falls in value do not bother me as i'm confident in the medium/long term the value will rise.

all i need to do now is have the balls to give up my teaching job and do this full time

insidetrack will charge you 3k for this info!!!!!!!!!

So hes got 15 k debt and made minus £7000 on the other 2

F*cking genious

And, if he goes into negative cashflow he's caught in a capital gains tax trap.... he's potentially insolvent when capital gains tax is taken into account.
