Working with motivated sellers and helping them sell their properties with Simon Zutshi
We’re in a market that is climbing steeply with so many market players outbidding one another… as an investor you’re probably thinking ‘how on earth will I ever find something to buy that’s actually affordable and makes business sense?’ Yu huh, I think most investors are there, especially in the residential world. (Side note, if you are now investing in commercial and want to learn about how to attract tenants to your commercial property you are going to want to come to my webinar on 26th April at 18:30pm. To REGISTER CLICK HERE) Which means that we have to mix it up and find different avenues to go down and ways of finding property. We have to have an edge. So today I’ve invited Simon Zutshi onto the podcast to talk about his area of expertise working with motivated sellers and helping them sell their properties… in order to buy it to pop into his portfolio. I ask the tough questions about whether this is ethical and he gives you details of exactly how to add this as part of your strategy. It’s an episode not to be missed! Are you going to be adding this strategy to your daily investment routine? Natasha

What you ACTUALLY need to know about finding investor finance with Steve Wallis
I’ve been worried for a long time about the amount of cowboy action I’m seeing on social media when it comes to investor finance. Posts which say something along the lines of ‘Guaranteed 10% returns, we’re looking for investors’ without any disclaimers or even knowing if you’re pitching it to retail, sophisticated or high networth investors… Which could get you in hot water with the FCA, especially if you mess with a retail investors money, never repay them and they get a good solicitor on your case (think bye bye investment career, credibility and status) Running a regulated firm, I know how important it is to do things by the book… but I’m not FCA regulated (We’re RICS regulated) and so I KNEW that I had to find someone to come and train my clients on exactly how to raise finance compliantly. Inside the Members club we’ve been talking about this stuff all month and there’s plenty of trainings and templates on how to raise finance compliantly. However, I wanted to carry this conversation over to the podcast to make sure that there is enough information out there to help everyone get it right! This week, I’ve invited my good friend, FCA regulated and resident coach in the Members Club, Steve Wallis onto the podcast to discuss, what you ACTUALLY need to know about investment finance. How are you going to act when you next go out to raise finance? Natasha You can find out more about Steve --> http://www.indehacker.com/

Retail is Changing - Landlords you need to know this!
THE MEMBERS CLUB IS OPEN. To join click here: https://ncrealestate.co.uk/membersclub/ Have you heard this too? ‘The move to online retail is damaging the high street’ The stats say it all, in 2020, 16,000 stores were shut across the UK and 183,000 retail jobs were lost. The RICS are forecasting that values for standard retail and shopping centers will drop by 10.9% and 13.11%. There doesn’t seem like there’s much to get excited for in the retail sector right?! Wrong… I strongly believe it’s more of an exciting time then ever. Commercial trends change every 5-10 years. If you don’t keep up as a Landlord and make sure your unit is ‘new trend accommodating’, every time it becomes vacant, you’ll have an obsolete building before you know it. Which is why when you see values falling you know there’s a new trend coming and this time, it’s OMNICHANNEL RETAILING… we have to be providing units that fit this spec. This week on the podcast I delve into what omnichannel retailed is and how you can get involved in this as a Landlord. Does retailing seem more appealing to you? Natasha P.S If you have made it this far down the email, you’ll want to know about a special bonus I’ve nestled into the podcast. Make sure you listen to take advantage of it!

How to hire a team member / contractor / VA with Rach Cass
There is so much talk about ‘outsourcing’... Outsource your social media Outsource your property search Outsource your call handling The list goes on and on and on. When I first started out in business I had no idea how to lead and especially no idea how to lead a team. I had no idea how to hire correctly and so I got it wrong and wrong and wrong again. Which meant it took longer to get to anywhere near where I wanted to be. Then when I wanted to hire, I was too snowed under to even consider putting time aside to do it… until Rach stepped in and said ‘Tash let me show you how to do it’. So this week I thought I’d get Rach back onto the podcast to discuss how she helped me hire my team and how you can hire a team too, whether it’s just a couple of hours a week or full time, this podcast will make sure you get the help you need! Which team member are you going to hire next? Natasha P.S You need to come to my webinar on the 29th March @ 6:30pm - How to Supercharge your Portfolio via buying Commercial Property REGISTER HERE

How to make the RIGHT decision in Property Investment
Property investment decisions. I would like to tell you that they are all made strategically. If you’ve not heard it before, I firmly believe that deciding on what property investment decision to make comes in ‘6 Buckets’: Growth potential - How you’re going to increase the value Demand - Is there appetite for the property and where is the right area Yield - Your net rental income Type - BTL / SA / HMO / Commercial / Mixed Use ect. Characteristics - What do you NEED the property to have Search - Ideas for finding the property - Of course you’re always going to look at this with finance in mind, how much money you want to spend, whether you need a mortgage… But I notice that investors can get all of this right in a property AND still not pull the trigger to go ahead. Why? Because they struggle to know if they are making the RIGHT decision. This week I decided to investigate this further, by bringing back onto the podcast, my Mum. Who notoriously used to get stuck with these types of decisions and has worked hard to get more decisive over the last couple of years. Plus she’s a fountain of knowledge and any chance I have to get motherly wisdom, I’m going to take her up on it! I’m asking you, what’s stopping you from making the RIGHT decision in your property portfolio?

Could we please stop 10 X’ing Everything AND the Budget
I see it, there seems to be some sort of imaginary competition in the investment world of who can ‘hustle’ hardest. Or who’s 10 X’ing things to make sure they achieve 10 X the success. If you’re a fan of that stuff and it motivates you, please be my guest, continue with it. However, if you’re like me, it completely makes me cringe. I’ve seen first hand how much working myself to the bone is detrimental for my health. Instead I see success as having gaps in my day. Time to go to the doctor if I need help. Time to take the dog for a walk if I need a break. Time to settle into a project. I HATE the thought of falling back into the trap of having to do more to be more successful… when I’m not even sure what success looks like anymore. In todays podcast I talk about this hype over 10 X’ing your goals and your life and instead looking at it a little differently… I also go through my first take ont he budget. Seriously, I recorded myself looking at it for the first time and what my thoughts were! I would like your takes on the budget please. What were your highs and lows?

Lockdown is Ending: Here’s how to handle it as a property investor...
Optimism is in the air. The world is seeing signs of reopening and everyone is posting to social media about the holidays they dream of booking. I mean, this is of course, subject to BJ’s plans going well… What this also means is that behaviours are changing within the market place, both for commercial and residential. Residential sales are being postponed until there is room to breath. Commercial landlords are now dropping low yielding, expensive portfolios in an effort to raise cash so they can ride the next wave. However, the economy is still in the doldrums. Businesses still have 4 months of lock down provisions to contend with and the furlough scheme and other various grants aren’t going to hold the damage back much longer. Job cuts and businesses folding are the inevitable. So how do we deal with that? In todays podcast I’m going to go through it and what you can do to make sure you’re also looking after yourself! Think payment plan, payment plan, payment plan, empathy, compassion... Natasha P.S Looking forward to the budget tomorrow? P.P.S The March webinar is live on the 29th March at 6:30pm.

Systemising your business in 10 Steps
I’m going to be honest and say, when I first started out as a property manager I had no idea what I was doing. When I first set up my business, I had no idea what I was doing. Every morning I’d get up, put 101 things on my to do list. Try complete them all and be everywhere and then end the day at midnight successfully having ticked off about a quarter of what I needed to do. Sound familiar? The only way I have been able to grow, and grow quickly over the last 12 months, is by systemising my business. I now have a team of 7 people who work at NC Real Estate. Team doesn’t happen if no one knows what they are doing. I’ve had to step into a leadership role in a big way and make sure I slap my own wrist when I try to do the small stuff instead of look at the big picture. Everyday my business is a work in progress. I’m now OK with that. However, if I hadn’t taken bold steps to outsource and hire, I just couldn’t keep up at the pace I was going and the way I wanted to grow. In this weeks podcast I go through the 10 steps to systeming your business. Some of which might sound familiar, because its the same system I use to build property portfolios. Over to you, time to build a scalable busines!! P.S Remember to register for Mondays Webinar, build a property investment business plan in 60 minutes a day. HINT: This forms part of my systemising business strategy so I’ll actually teach you how to do it in the webinar.

How I got a £14,855.60 refund in service charge
Come to my webinar on how to create a Property Investment Business plan on the 22nd February @ 6:30pm by REGISTERING HERE If I could put anything in Room 101 this week, it would be Property Managers who aren’t transparent. Honesty and clarity are values which make my world go round. Who’s got time for game playing… or for people who pretend they know something but actually don’t?! (I see this far too much in the property industry) This week, I’m high fiving myself 🙌 because I successfully got £14,855.60 refunded back into my buildings service charge account. Caveat… this didn’t happen overnight. Oh no, it first started on the 6th October 2020 when we got served our end of year service charge accounts, which demanded that everyone pay an extra £1,499 for the year. My initial reaction ‘Why?’ Then after an investigation it changed to ‘Hell👏effing👏no, not on my watch!’ The property managers had: Duplicated invoices Demanded for works that had been carried out more than 18 months ago that they definitely hadn’t told us about Made mistakes and tried to charge us for it Oh… and we’d just been through 12 months of leasehold tribunal and so I was in no mood to roll over and leave this be, because: I hate my time being wasted I was fed up of them thinking I was stupid enough not to investigate. I do like a good service charge investigation 🧐 especially because I do have the memory of an elephant for these types of things Want to hear how to resolve this if this happens to you?

The Lands Chamber and Leasehold Tribunal - Everything you need to know
Leasehold Tribunal puts the fear of god in a lot of leaseholders… and then if it gets referred up a level to Lands Tribunal it seems scarier, especially because you end up in the Royal Courts of Justice trying to settle a dispute that can be really heated. If you’ve been a with me a while, you’ll know in 2020 I ended up in Leasehold Tribunal myself. It was a pain more than anything. I got a lot of people reaching out to me to tell me how scary they thought it all sounded. So I thought I’d get to the bottom of what the Leasehold Tribunal and then the Lands Chamber actually does, the process and why it’s vital we understand it AND alternative dispute resolution. Today I’ve invited Peter McCrea onto the podcast. Peter is a Chartered Surveyor, Arbitrator, former chair of the Conduct and Appeals Committee for the RICS and was appointed the youngest ever member of the "Lands Tribunal" at the age of 44. The Tribunal has equivalent status to the High Court in England and Wales. Peter is also Chair of the Board for LionHeart. We go through, litigation, ADR and the best way of resolving a dispute and why the Lands Chamber and Leasehold Tribunal isn’t as scary as everyone makes out! https://twitter.com/mccrea_frics https://surveyorhood.com/peter-mccrea/ Lionheart --> https://www.lionheart.org.uk/

Why I'm not a fan of the consultation on E class to C3 - What we should do instead
I’m excited, this week the Members Club is open!! Woohoo… only until Midnight on Thursday 28th January. This year the Members Club has stepped up. You not only have access to masterclasses in a quick easy sequence that will build out a strategy and then make sure you purchase the perfect property in the right location. But you have access to a wealth of industry databases that surveying firms have access to, for both residential and commercial properties. Each week you will be invited to come to a commercial Q&A and residential Q&A as well as a Masterclass with either me or our resident coaches where we cover industry updates and asset management strategies. There are also co-working sessions if you want time to focus on property investment and my team and I are always at the end of an email or in our community to answer any of your questions. You’re invited to as many sessions as you want to attend, we recommend taking time to come to at least one session a month (if we don’t hear from you we will be checking in as accountability is our thing). It’s £97/month and you can stay for as long or as little as you want. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OK right, let’s get into this week’s podcast! I’m sure you’ve heard about the Governments consultation to grant PDR (permitted development rights) from E class to C3 as of August 2021. In practice seems phenomenal. Woohoo lets build resi because it’s in demand, but in reality I can see it ending up in an unregulated mess and investors loosing money, here’s why: Poses risks with messing up town centers and high streets Causing poor tenant mix Investors think this is an easy strategy without providing good quality accommodation Lack of commercial will push rents up for commercial units elsewhere More residential will bring residential prices down Commercial tenants and residential tenants are picky about where they are located Potential for loosing amenities needed by tenants - such as loading for commercial or parking or gardens So I propose a solution to this and how you can still make good money, want the answer?

Updates on Leasehold Reform
Back on the 7th January the Ministry for Housing announced their radical leasehold reform proposals. Serious focus on Commonhold and the set up of the Commonhold Council Leases could be extended by 990 years rather than 90 and ground rent go to £0 An online calculator which will tell you what the cost of a lease extension will be This is on top of their current proposals for £0 ground rents on Help to Buy and Retirement Housing. Sounds great, right? Well, there’s always got to be a catch, which is why I invited Katie Kendrick from the National Leasehold Campaign to discuss what this announcement actually means. You can find Katie on Twitter @NLC_2019 / https://nationalleaseholdcampaign.org/ Also remember, my webinar on Monday 25th January @ 6:30pm, the Traps you MUST avoid in property investment in 2021.

How to Use Social Media to find Investor Finance
Before I start, remember on Monday 25th January at 6:30pm I’m hosting a free Masterclass: The Traps You MUST Avoid in Property Investment in 2021 make sure you register! The top two things that hold a property investor up: Finding deals Raising finance I talk about finding deals a lot… I always start there because I know in my heart of hearts that I’d be able to find finance on any property I cared deeply enough about. Whether I have the deposit in my bank or I have to raise a little bit of cash. I talk less about raising finance. Raising finance is all about having a strong network that trusts what you are doing. This doesn’t happen over night. It takes time to buikes time to build that relationship. Think about how long you’ve known your BFF’s? A long time right? It’s similar for investors. They need to have that connection with you. That connection needs to be consistent. That connection needs to be authentic. I know a lady who does this well, Ellie Mcky. This week I’ve invited her on the podcast to explain how she raises investor finance through social media. Pens and paper at the ready!

Property Market Predictions 2021
Remember to register for my webinar on the 25th January - The Traps to Avoid in Property Investment This Year! Happy New Year! Did you manage to take some time off over the break? I did… two whole weeks mostly away from my computer. OK, I’m terrible at putting my feet up, but I loved getting creative with DIY and adding a design twist to our lake house. I’m excited to live here for a few months before it goes on Air BnB! If you want to see progress, come follow me on Instagram @natashaccollins (In fact, I’ve enjoyed it so much, I think I’ll make this house renovation an end of year tradition. Buy something new, do it up, move on in two weeks over Christmas!) These two weeks also gave me time to think, what will 2021 bring? I’m not a New Year Resolution kinda gal. I take this time to set business goals, so that my team and I have something to aim for. This year it’s to double the number of Members in the Members Club and double my Surveyor team as I’m going to need more hands on deck to support all of these portfolios. Personally, I’m open to what happens. In terms of the property market… I’ll give it to you like the weather forecast. Residential; a stable market. More tax hikes for second home owners and investors (see the precedent set in Wales and Rushi’s need to raise income). No SDLT STILL for first time buyers and single home owners. Even harder hoops to jump through for lending for both. All of this will keep market values stagnant. Oh… I also think rents will stagnate to and probably be capped at universal credit levels. Invest in moving assets which will grow over a 10 year period, don’t look for the unicorn BRR in 6 months as lenders might not play ball. Commercial; A bloody mess. For big commercial tenants who’ve failed to communicate or paid rent (even whilst declaring profits) expect forfeiture on 1st April as Landlords have had enough. The potential changes to PDR will signal the demise of the high street as we know it regardless of Robert Jenrick and his £830 Million #futurehighstreetfund (OK mate, you’re going to save every high street with that are ya?!). Give it until 2025 and we’ll see if this is a good year… commercial market trends typically change every 5 years. However the PDR will keep commercial values stable. Commercial landlords there’s still money to be made, just pick good tenants and think about tenant mix, please, I’m begging you as that’s the only way to keep your tenant trading. That’s my 60 second pitch… you want all of my predictions AND what you should be focusing on right now, go listen to my podcast

The Instagram (or social media) account that keeps you motivated? The thing you’ve been most anxious about this year? The one thing that has helped you cope with 2020? The thing you gave up doing because ‘meh’ 2020? The thing you’re most proud of in 2020? Why not post the answers to social media and tag me in it @natashaccollins so I can see… the quiz graphic is HERE to make it easy for you to download and post! Right, it’s been an absolute pleasure.

Blind Spots in Property Investment you NEED to be aware of RIGHT NOW!
The property market is getting tricky. There are so many blind spots in the industry wrapped up like Christmas Presents, that investors/buyers just simply don’t notice. And that is where it will cost you long term. It may look really nice that some new build apartment block developers have decided to hand out £0 ground rents and 999 year leases (how kind). But you read through the lease and realise they charge you £200 in admin fees every time you put in place a new AST… To be a competent investor you MUST 👏 READ 👏 EVERYTHING. That includes any lease. Any title deeds. Any special conditions in the auction catalogue. Yes, you pay a solicitor to do this… but everyones human and may miss something thats vitally important to you. You also owe a duty of care to yourself to make sure you are as informed as possible. So in this weeks podcast I’m going through all of the blind spots I’m seeing in the property industry right now and how to avoid them.

What are we going to do with these empty Debenhams units?!
There are currently 124 Debenhams units employing 12,000 members of staff across the UK. When the stores close down, that’s an awful lot of empty space clogging up the high street. ‘Clogging’ funny word to use, right? But, in all honesty that’s what will happen. There will be a period of time where the liquidation process happens and none of the units can be used. That will mean retail units being shuttered or boarded up. Leading to security issues… which inevitably leaves the surrounding retailers nervous, if they survive at all. Traditionally Anchor units, Debenahms would bring footfall to an area, which is why retailers pay to be next door to these units in the first place. Footfall dwindles = reduced profits = more store closures. Not pretty. Which is why in this weeks podcast I’m discussing options for these Debenhams units. HINT: Think innovation Even if you don’t dream of owning a property the size of a Debenhams unit this is still for you. You need to be thinking about how you can change up the industry… this gives you a chance to daydream. That’s where all the best ideas come from!

What’s wrong with my strategy?
BOOK ONTO THE WEBINAR HERE --> https://ncrealestate.co.uk/webinarnovember2020/  Let me be straight, because I can be nothing else, I’m pretty sure the real reason your strategy is off is because you’re listening to too many other people telling you what your strategy shouldn’t be and pretending like that’s a strategy. For example, If I were to ask you: ‘What’s your property investment strategy’ and you were to reply ‘Serviced accommodation’ I’d sigh and shake my head because that’s 👏 not 👏 a 👏 strategy. A strategy is a plan over a number of years that shows growth, pinpoints when you’re next buying a property, how much income it’s going to generate, how you’re going to fund it, so that you’ve got a step by step guide. Intrigued? Let me tell you more in this podcast

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly In Property Investment Right Now
Whilst I can’t solve political leaders throwing their toys out the pram, I can give you some encouragement for how to handle the property market. The Ugly: Don’t trust developers who phone you out of the blue looking for investment **COUGH** money to prop up their failing developments. Always do your due diligence The Bad (for movers): Time is running out to buy a property and take advantage of the stamp duty relief for homeowners. Mortgage lending and searches is soooo slllloooowww right now 😴, so it’s taking 3-4 months to complete on property. Which means… The Good (for property investors): Bide your time. Put in the ground work now, you’ll have sellers biting your hands off for low ball offers come the end of the year The exceptionally good: No money down deals are a possibility if you work for it… I’ll tell you about it, plus a case study, in my pod!

Free Content v Paid Content
I’ve seen a lot going around social media about free content v paid content. I develop my business growth on Free v Paid and there is a difference in what is offered and how each type of content operates. I also don't class my ‘paid’ services as ‘content’. At the point that you pay my firm of surveyors for a service we are on hand to help, support and advise and that for me is the difference.... A professional service. This is also what you should be asking for with any service you pay for. In this podcast I go through the strategy and reasoning for both types of content and services. It may also help you understanding the back end of running a business through social media, as it’s definitely different from the traditional way for growing a firm of surveyors!!

Is commercial and mixed use property investment really worth it?
I’m optimistic that after a few slow years there will be opportunities for innovation and changing the shape of high streets and offices, into more dynamic spaces that can be opened up or closed down depending on what’s needed at the time. However, I also know that in order to get a mortgage on a commercial or mixed use property you definitely need to have tenants in situ, which is why I’m looking to scoop up properties from Landlords who can’t wait to get out of this sector. Therefore, as it’s high on my agenda, I have dedicated this weeks podcast to Commercial and Mixed Use Property Investment. I answer the question, is it really worth it?

Commercial. Residential. Risk
Today, I’m excited to invite Faith Locken to the podcast where we discuss commercial, residential, risk and more. If there’s one big takeaway you should be getting from Covid 19, is that going forward we need to diversify our portfolios to risk proof them. That’s having a mix of residential property, plus if it’s your jam a sprinkling of commercial. Markets are ALWAYS going to change, that’s inevitable. Yes, there will be demand for homes and so standard BTL’s will always be a popular investment (providing we buy in the right area). However, we always need to be thinking about live, work and play… the three overarching categories of property, and how we can maximise that in our portfolio. You’ve also got to remember, that what works for you, may not work for someone else and vice versa. Therefore you’ve got to build a portfolio that both excites you, but will also hit your goals in a changing market.

Trying to become 1% better everyday with Aren Deu
Today, I’m very excited, I’ve got Aren Deu on the podcast with me today. Aren is a property investor and health and fitness expert and mental health advocate. He has some incredible outlooks on life in terms of mindset, overcoming mental health challenges and is the host of the Find Your Voice Podcast. Here are a couple of questions that Aren and I go through in this podcast:  Mainstream advice is "focus on something and get good at it before you do anything else". You combine health and fitness and property. How do you combine both successfully? You coach people on how to elevate their personal brands. Can you define a personal brand and why is it so important for property investors? What is the first step you should take to developing your personal brand and then what is the one consistent step you should be doing daily? Aren's BIO:  Aren Deu has spent his life trying to make those around him do and feel better. From helping people with their physical and mental health to becoming a social worker to try to change the world, most of his work has been done to give back. Recognising that bureaucracy and his own mental health battles with high functioning anxiety would hinder that he began to go on a journey of understanding himself. So Aren blindly jumped into the property space, spending £1000s on courses to change his families lives and his own. Recognising it wasn’t all fun and games, he became what he calls “the king of failure”. However, learning from every opportunity and taking that adversity and resilient mindset forward he began to make a success of it. Raising over £1,000,000 and funding projects with investors over the years Arens long term future looks to be secure. Although never a priority, Aren has used this as an excuse to spend even more time doing more time in the mental health space. No monetization, no source of income, these are just pure passion projects that for the past 2 years Aren has spent over 20+ hours a week on. This also birthed the Find Your Voice podcast which has a been huge success across 50+ countries and ranking in the top charts for mental health. I live by many mantras in life. Two of which are: “Help as many people as you can.” & “Always help without expectations” 2020 sees Aren wanting to speak more in the fields he works in about Mental Health and raising awareness to the darker sides of peoples thoughts, and poorly brains not just in their own personal lives, but also in the property space. What happens when partners steal from you? What happens when deals fall from under your feet? Or projects overrun, on time and budget? What happens when tenants refuse to pay? All these things are rarely spoken of and in turn can have detrimental effects on your life, so hopefully with the right tools and guidance Aren will at least try to get peoples health prioritised and looked after along the way.

To access my Covid-19 Working Paper click here - https://www.ncrealestatemembersclub.com/covid-19 Today, I’m very excited, I’ve got Joshua Tharby from JSM Partners with me. He’s an accountant and property tax specialist. Here are the questions I ask Josh in the podcast and the timestamps: [01:06] Firstly, for anyone who hasn’t come across you before, what is your background? [05:58] We’re at the end of the 2019/2020 accounting year, what do property investors need to be doing right now to prepare for their tax returns? [9:35] What tax changes do we need to be aware of this year? [11:05] What are the biggest myths around property investment tax that you are hearing at the moment? [13:05] What expenses can we deduct from our rental income? [15:16] For those investors who have residential BTL’s in their own name and facing the fact that next year they can’t deduct 100% of their mortgage interest from their rental income, what can they do this year to minimise the impact? [18:11] I’m a commercial property enthusiast and am working with a lot of my clients on mixed use and commercial property investments. What tax do you need to be aware for for this property type? [21:20] Everyone is trying to invest via Ltd companies. What are the pro’s and con’s of this? [22:27] We’ve experienced a lot of uncertainty in the market due to Covid-19, SA’s are really impacted. Do you think that this will have an impact on profits this year? Also, we’ve got to pay tax in advance in July this year, what happens if you’ve made losses and now are worried about how you are going to pay that? [26:04] Finally, how do you see the industry changing going forward? (+ some positives of our current situation!)

It’s my birthday and I’ll pod if I want to!
There are a few times a year where I like to throw caution to the wind and put out a silly podcast (If you are here for property investment only, skip this one… it’s definitely not property-related!). It’s my birthday week and this year I’ve decided to celebrate in style. I’ve invited my Mum, sister Sophie and best friend Rach back on the podcast to talk with me about some questions that I’ve got: * The Guardians Bridie Jabour suggests that 31 is the age of misery (Because most millennials aren’t living up to societies norms) - do you think there actually is an age of misery? * Where have you felt most confident in the past but now don’t care? * Do you ever get ’small but mighty moments’ where somethings clicked? What’s happened recently for you? * Does risk change as you get older? What’s the riskiest thing you’ve done and what age? * COMPARISON - Do you stop comparing yourself to others the older you get? * Are there rules for throwing birthday parties? Are you meant to throw your own (I do)? * When you hit your 30’s what’s too much wine? As I’ve got older it creeps more and more into my life in that, I really enjoy a glass or 2 of it, so have a bottle in the fridge. I didn’t do that in my early 20’s.

Overcoming Scarcity Mindset {with Christine Garvey}
Today I’ve got Christine Garvey on the podcast which I’m very excited about, Christine is an artist, teacher and coach and got my attention when she hosted a scarcity workshop back in December! I knew it was something that would really resonate with my audience because it made me think ‘oh wow I see this everything single day and I even feel it! Christine Garvey is an artist and coach based in Austin, TX. Her creative work has been recognized with a Fulbright Research Grant, an Austin Community Initiatives Award, and a Fellowship from Concordia University Montreal. Since 2010 she has been a faculty member at institutions like University of Texas at Austin, Florence University of the Arts, and Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation. She writes and speaks about ideas that impact artists, including scarcity and financial stability. Her work has been featured in Big Medium’s Creative Standard, The Creative Independent, and Brooklyn Magazine. You can find more about Christine here: www.christine-garvey.com Here’s the book Christine recommends: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Scarcity-True-Cost-Having-Enough/dp/0141049197/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=scarcity&qid=1582836514&sr=8-1 Questions we go through: What is a scarcity mindset? Why does a scarcity mindset show up? I’ve seen scarcity mindset show up in property investors over knowledge, time, right location, not feeling good enough, not having the right lifestyle, finances… is that a normal feeling? Why is a scarcity mindset such a big problem? Are there standard triggers that can cause a scarcity mindset? What is the opposite feeling of scarcity? What tools can investors use to turn the scarcity mindset around?

Property Sourcing
This is my third most requested podcast! So, here it is: The process for property sourcing compliance is to set up a business for property sourcing. Ask your accountant to do this. Then you need to register with HMRC that you are a property sourcer, you are classed as an Estate Agent, so you MUST set up as one via HMRC. Next up make sure you have an appropriate complaint handling process in place with a property redress scheme such as The Property Ombudsman, as this falls under the requirements of the Estate Agents Act 1979. A really good guide for Complaints Handling is the RICS Complaints Handling, 1st edition: https://www.rics.org/uk/upholding-professional-standards/sector-standards/valuation/complaints-handling-1st-edition/ You MUST read the Estate Agents Act 1979 - http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1979/38 Also read Real Estate Agency and Brokerage 3rd edition – The section on acting for the buyer: https://www.rics.org/uk/upholding-professional-standards/sector-standards/real-estate/real-estate-agency-and-brokerage/ Once that’s set up you then need to register your business with the ICO to make sure you are data protection compliant and register with the anti-money laundering scheme https://www.gov.uk/anti-money-laundering-registration and then make sure you take out the necessary professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance, which an insurance broker will be able to advise you on, I use A-On for my business.

The Truth About Valuations + An Unusual Property Investment Strategy
I’ve invited David Hunt, my fellow UCEM Valuations Lecturer to come and discuss all things valuations, his super interesting and diverse career AND his unusual property investment strategy. Here are the questions we chat through: When did you get started in property and why did you choose this as your career path? You’ve worked all over the EU and have also done some Global Talks, how did these opportunities come about? You have your own investment portfolio, can you tell us about your strategy and what type of investor you are? As a purchaser, since you're paying the hefty valuation fee in many cases, why don't you have to the right to ask lenders questions about any issues that were raised? What are the key sources used for assessing the impact on value on a property of the quality of fixtures and fittings and other intangibles like an outside office? What are the most reliable sources to find out property market latest figures and trends? Do valuers believe in the 18yr property cycle? How will valuers be affected by the digital revolution in lending on the horizon and how will they respond? Are Automated Valuation Models a real threat to valuers and how risky are they for investors in getting to the correct valuation?

BREXIT Unravelled with Annabel Kaye
I'm probably as bored of hearing about BREXIT as you are... but I'm also confused with what's going on and I wanted some straight talk. So I asked Annabel to come and explain to me what's happened. Annabel has spent almost 40 years helping growing businesses sort out the practical and legal side of paying people and has been a guest expert on both tv and radio talking about all things gig-economy. Her current mission - to get her micropreneur clients through Brexit. This is a fun, straight talking, yet light hearted, conversation. I learnt a lot, and I'm sure you will too!  (Please note that we recorded this on the 21st March... I get that anything could change in the interim, included the fact that over 1,000,000 walked to Parliament Square demonstrating against BREXIT, including Annabel, and at the time of writing over 5,000,000 had signed the revoke article 50 petition) If you want to find out more about me then head over to www.ncrealestate.co.uk for blogs and more!

Why BTL is dead… or NOT
This week I’m joined by my friend and fellow investor Isaac Sebbag. He used the proceeds of the sale of his flat in Manchester in 2016 to fund his 54 deal strong, development portfolio in New Jersey, USA.  We discuss his investment strategy. Plus, we bust the myth that BTL is dead. Want to sign up for the Members Club Waiting List so that you're first to get into the Members Club when it opens, click here: https://ncrealestatemembersclub.com  I also answer the following question from within the Property Investment Mastery Facebook Group: Been trying to enter the BTL arena for a while, and my original plan was to purchase a low value property outright at auction in the south wales area (approx £40k). However, that would consume pretty much all of my savings, and so have turned my focus towards interest only mortgages on slightly higher value properties (1 bed flats circa £60k) to prevent tying up all of my funds in one place.  Although this appears to be a commonly taken, sensible approach to dipping a toe in, I wanted to ask - aside from any get rich quick, investment pool type schemes, is there another approach that I'm missing?

How BTL Landlords Can Keep Up With MANDATORY Changes to Residential Standards
On this week’s podcast I have an amazing chat with Alan Milstein of Sky Line surveyors about new legislation changes that are about to drop for landlords and a solution on how you can make sure you are compliant in wake of the change.  www.ncrealestate.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/groups/propertyinvestmentmastery  Here’s the show notes from Alan: The Residential Property Surveyors Association (RPSA) represents specialist residential surveyors throughout England and Wales. It is a not-for-profit organisation that mentors, supports and promotes the interests of its members at local, national and Government level.  Working closely with partners at software designers Skyline Surveyors Ltd, the RPSA creates survey products that are more useful, practical and readable than has, sadly all too often, been the case in the past. The new Mi Buy To Let Survey is a unique report format that delivers an assessment, not only of the condition of the property, but also of the health and safety issues that can cause discomfort for tenants and risk substantial penalties for landlords. It helps protect the landlords investment and provides reassurance that it delivers a decent and safe home for the occupants. The Mi Buy To Let Survey can be ordered through the RPSA panel of surveyors anywhere in the country. It's so new that, until our website designers haven't yet caught up with the automated booking process, but quotations and bookings can be made via info@rpsa.org.uk My name is Alan Milstein and I am Chairman of the RPSA. It really matters to me that our members deliver premium products at competitive prices, and with a great service. www.rpsa.org.uk

Is This A New Tax On HMO Landlords? Are HMO’s Really Worth It?
On the 1stOctober 2018 mandatory HMO licensing comes into force in England for every HMO. This requires Landlords to apply to their local authority for a license which could cost between £500 to over £1,000 per property. As well as adhere to minimum room sizes of 6.51sq m for an adult’s room and 4.64sq m for a child’s room. It’s estimated that an additional 77,000 Landlords will now need to pay for a license.  If you do not apply by the 1stOctober 2018, there are a number of consequences: £30,000 fine from the Local Authority If no action is taken by the council tenants could apply for a rent repayment order and claim up to 12 months’ rent You can’t serve a section 21 notice seeking possession  In this podcast I discuss why I think this licensing is a good thing, but I don’t think that it’s enough to stamp out rogue Landlords. www.ncrealestate.co.uk   Property Investment Mastery Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/propertyinvestmentmastery/
