Given the sophisticated property market in the UK, there are a range of investment types, from more 'passive' investment options through to hands-on buy-to-lets

'Passive' or 'arms-length' property investments

This is for those of you who want to get the returns property can offer, but without the hassle of hands-on management. This may be for you, if you are busily employed elsewhere and want to build up a portfolio, which doesn't interfere with your day job.

Active property investment in the UK

Buy to let gearing for property returns

Few investments allow you to use a mortgage to buy an asset, thereby giving you a larger pot of money to buy a larger asset. This offers the opportunity for benefiting from capital uplift on the whole value of the property, rather than just your deposit, whilst repaying the loan with rental income. Given the changes over treatment of mortgage interest relief in the UK and the stamp duty surcharge, which suppress ongoing profitability for leveraged buyers, it makes sense to think of property investing more as a medium to longer term investment.

Cities like Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool have average house prices up to 75% less than London but also offer yields of 6-9%. Download information on a managed city buy-to-let here.
