How to continue UK investing during lockdown?

There is so much uncertainty currently.

The Trump: Biden standoff, not only an unseemly moment for the USA but for Democracy globally.

Surrey Buy-to-let investment property

Due diligence can reduce uncertainty when investing in residential property by spending a significant amount of time researching and doing  analysis before jumping to site visits.

• Can the area deliver your target yields and capital growth aspirations?

•  If it can, is this likely to attract your ideal tenant type?

• And can you afford the type of property you want, whether it be freehold or leasehold, or number of bedrooms?

If you are in rush to beat a deadline, what about the sale status e.g. is there a chain? Has the vendor got other options which means they might be less flexible on price?

All of this before physical site visits, which – for me – are not only to view properties but also to see how professional the estate agent is when conducting the viewing. Are they adhering to best practice Covid guidelines? I tend to use this as a proxy for professionalism. If they’re professional during the sale, they are likely to be professional management agents and serve you well during a lockdown.
