What's next for property?

So, big changes for property investor which are making many people rethink the asset class, if my email in box is anything to go by.

I first chatted to Rob and Rob back in session 12, over three years ago. They name checked me on their wildly popular show and I know that as a result, many of their listeners also listen to me, and vice versa. They really, really know their stuff and have loads to say on this topic.

In this session, you'll discover:

  1. Changes being made to the taxation of mortgage interest for landlords, and what it means in practice
  2. The Robs' view on what the Stamp Duty surcharge will do to the gap between the haves and the have-nots.
  3. The impact of mortgage lending tightening for property investors
  4. Why the Bank of England is getting involved
  5. What one-day landlords can do to make the process easier
  6. The Robs' view on the future of property investing

For all landlords and wannabe property investors, this is an important session which will help give you a steer as to the impact of these measures on your financial planning.
