Over the last two decades, U.K. investors have become pre-occupied with investments in both residential and commercial property.
Recent governments have changed many aspects relating to property investments and fundamentally through taxation, have reduced the attractiveness of investing in Buy-to-Let and property generally, by significantly increasing transaction costs.
This means investments in property going forward should be considered very carefully against other investment options, as it is likely that property investments will need to be held for much longer time frames to make economic sense.
It is almost nonsensical to consider property investment over 2-5 year periods because of the costs involved on each side of the transaction.
Property should therefore generally be an extremely long term investment, and our Key Guide considers all the relevant aspects investors need to consider. The Key Guide is available to download here.
