Working with Property Fit FAQs

At Property Fit, we only source properties we would invest in ourselves. With over 17 years of experience in the property investment industry, we have expert knowledge of what properties reach the best ROI; our focus is on well-priced properties in strong rental areas, producing high yields.

With a company portfolio of hundreds of properties per year and a team of highly experienced viewing agents, we have essential knowledge on which areas in the UK are promising opportunities for investment, and which areas should be avoided by our clients.

With our strong ethos and capable team, we can find exactly the kinds of investments you want to make.

Yes; Property Fit’s expert viewing team is well-versed in looking closely at potential investments to assess their quality, providing our clients all the crucial information they need to make the right decision. This is not limited to the property itself, but also the local area, and our team prides itself on its in-depth, boots-on-the-ground research.

If you have a particular property in mind, please contact our team and we can arrange a viewing – our agents will write you a full report on their findings, take a range of detailed photographs, and produce a virtual tour of the property. Our ultimate goal is for you to be intimately familiar with properties without having to deal with the inconvenience of visiting them.

Our team covers; Greater Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, Coventry, Nottingham, St. Helens, and East Lancashire.

How much is your Viewing Fee?

We are very pleased to offer a viewing service for just £100 + VAT per viewing.

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.

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.
