The Advantage of Investing UK Scotland Property | UK Immigration and Property investment JiaYu

Where to buy a UK property? A detailed explanation of buying low valued properties in the UK.

The boom in buying British properties continues, but many people in Hong Kong have seen the advertisements of London and Manchester properties. Is it just a city choice to buy a British property? Of course not! Except for the well-known cities in England, Scottish properties are actually quite attractive, especially low-priced properties.

The benefits of low-priced properties
In fact, there is no specific definition of properties commonly known as low-priced properties. In Hong Kong, everyone has a consensus to refer to properties below HK$5 million. What about British properties? According to our general knowledge, a UK property under about £100,000 can be called a low-priced property.

Of course, the most intuitive reason is that you can pay less stamp duty or even not pay the stamp duty, if you buy a low-priced property. Take Scotland as an example. Properties under £40,000 are not subject to stamp duty, while properties under £40,000 – 125,000 are only subject to 4% tax.

In addition, the unit price of a low-priced building is low, so buyers can buy more and diversify their investment. Buyers can collect more rental income, compared with an expensive building.

Looking at the Rightmove example, you can buy a building in London for £400,000. The monthly rent is £647, and the rental return rate is 1.9%. Even if you rent it out at £1,000, the rental return rate is only 3%. Yet compared to Scotland, a £45,000 building has a rental income of £500 and a rental return rate of 12%. The annual cash flow of the two markets is only £1,764, but buying a property in London is almost ten times more expensive than buying a low-priced property in Scotland.

Considering the number of rebates, in fact, buying a cheaper-priced property will definitely be more worthwhile and the return would be higher than buying a property in first-tier big cities like London or Manchester. What's more, you can buy several low-priced buildings with the same amount of money, and the combined returns and cash flow are higher.

Why buy a flat? What are the benefits of buying a flat?
The prices of most flat/apartments in the UK are generally low, which meets our definition of a low-priced flat. What are the benefits of a flat?

In order to facilitate convenience to work, and the flat rent is affordable, not many family customers and office workers will choose to rent. It is no exaggeration to say that it is the most popular type of housing in the UK. Moreover, renting a flat is cheap and good quality, and it is less burdensome for the tenant, given the risk that the tenant cannot pay the rent is also low.

Of course, there are not many British people who live in houses or terraced houses, etc. However, flats has a larger target group, and relatively speaking, the rental rate of return will be higher, as it can reach an annual return of 8-10%.

Why don't people buy cheap flats?
In fact, it's not because people won't buy it, it's only because fewer locals will buy it.

Compared with Chinese or even Asians, who have to buy a house unconsciously, and buying a house is not necessary for many British people. Most of salary is used for fun, travel and other expenses. Fortunately, most people have no tendency to buy a flat, and many rented flats have been rented out. Therefore, the UK rental market is booming, and there is still a certain amount of supply of low-priced properties in the UK property market.

投資英國物業八大陷阱詳細版 教你如何避免誤墮騙局

唔少香港人隨住BNO移民熱潮投資英國物業,但係未必個個都懂得當中竅門。為免受騙,不如一齊了解下英國物業投資最常見嘅八個陷阱,了解騙子嘅手段,咪唔會咁容易誤墮陷阱,快快買到心水物業囉! 一手樓(樓花) 陷阱1️⃣ 誤買爛尾樓 隨住唔少港人用BNO移民英國,當地亦推出好多針對港人而設嘅一手apartment物業,但部分物業並未落成,可能需要承擔爛尾風險。最好就搵大型發展商,簽訂買賣合約前記得睇清楚條款限制! 陷阱2️⃣ 未必達至保證租金回報 部分一手樓銷售時會以保證租金回報招徠買家,甚至可以達至6-7厘回報。事實上,唔少發展商口中嘅包租都係搵承包商,或者發展商喺頭幾年自行補貼租金,之後係咪繼續收呢個租金就一定要睇清楚條款。 陷阱3️⃣ 一手樓溢價 一般而言一手樓比二手市場嘅物業會有兩成溢價左右,發展商新起好嘅樓對比二手樓,都會相對昂貴。買家都要預返幾年時間,放出二手市場先可以打個和走或者賺錢,咁中間嘅租金回報可以有幾多就好重要喇。 二手樓 陷阱1️⃣ 物業狀況貨不對辦 現時COVID-19疫情持續,部分時間買家買樓時只能揀線上睇盤或者由Sourcing Agent代勞,好有可能買咗與實際尺寸不符嘅物業,遇上唔可靠嘅業主/Agent,甚至會刻意隱瞞冇整修好嘅瑕疵,就有可能產生額外裝修開支,或者係未能達到理想租金。 陷阱2️⃣ Leasehold物業或產生昂貴地租 英國物業有分freehold (永久業權) 及leasehold (租賃業權) 物業,只有freehold物業先可以買埋塊地,leasehold只能購買到業權,更需要長期繳交地租,地租更是每年遞增,租金升幅未必可以補償得到。因此購買物業時,睇清楚物業業權非常重要。 陷阱3️⃣ 假冒業主虛假放盤
