Working with Property Fit FAQs

At Property Fit, we only source properties we would invest in ourselves. Typically 2 or 3 bed houses in Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham. Terrace or Semi detached in established residential areas with high rental demand. These areas tend to be outside of the city centre.

There are 2 ways to finance a UK property investment.

1) Purchase the property with cash
2) Obtain a Buy-to-let mortgage which will typically be 65-75% of the purchase price, meaning that you will need 25-35% of the property value in cash.

With both finance routes there will also be other purchase costs such as legal fees, stamp duty, repair costs to get property into a lettable condition and sourcing agent fees.

With all of our properties, we will always add a £3k contingency for repairs. Some properties will require a bigger refurbishment than others; our viewing team will only select properties they feel will reach a high ROI, and this means some properties may require a refurbishment and others may not. If a property does require a refurbishment, we can connect clients to our sister company Bradwell Maintenance, who can take care of all your needs when it comes to refurbishment; from plastering and decorating to roofing and joinery, we can follow the full refurbishment process for your property. We can recommend, quote, and deliver the refurbishment work, and use trusted tradespeople to deliver the best possible service.

Absolutely, non-residents can actively participate in UK property investment from abroad. While there are no legal barriers for foreigners purchasing property in the UK, it’s essential for overseas investors to be mindful of certain points including tax and legal considerations. If you need advice from an accountant or mortgage broker we can introduce them to you.

Yes, we do source HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupation). However, we are very specific about the types of HMO that we will source and that we will only ever source HMOs that either have a HMO License and planning permission or a development HMO project where the correct planning and HMO license will be gained (managed by us).
We also ensure that any HMO that we source and develop are undertaken to a very good standard and are suitable for any type of tenant including young professionals. We do not source HMOs in Article 4 areas.
We tend to have a waiting list for HMOs so if you would like a HMO please let us know as it may take some time to arrange one for you.

The difference between ROI (return on investment) and yield is that the ROI measures a return specific to the amount invested or spent on an income-producing asset whereas a yield measures the return on the overall value of an asset. For example, if an investor buys a house for £100,000; she puts down a deposit for £25,000 and gets a mortgage. The rent per month is £500, and after mortgage and letting fees she is left with £200 per month. The ROI is 9.6% while the yield (gross/before other costs) is 6%.

Freehold property is when you purchase a property in full, whether that be with a mortgage or through a cash purchase. This means you own the property and the land that it is on. A leasehold is when you purchase the rights for the property for a period of time, this is normally for about 99 years.

You can purchase a property as both cash buy or mortgage. Alternatively, you can split the purchase between cash and mortgage.

Property Fit also have their very own letting agency, At-The-Place.com, a skilled team who will ensure your letting experience is smooth and successful. Once we have sourced a property for you, we can help you find the right tenant – our aim is to secure long-term, good tenants for your property.
