    Dynamic developer - Paul Nicholson | Luxor



    We're heading into the final stages of "Get into the property groove for 2017", our January campaign of inspirational content.

    Today, Property Tribes heads to Liverpool to meet dynamic young developer and property entrepreneur Paul Nicholson, of the Luxor Group, to hear about his property journey - which has already reached new heights in 2017:



    In the video, Paul mentioned his latest project in St. Helens.  He has just secured planning permission to turn a landmark building - a former department store - into a mixture of retail units and luxury flats.

    The iconic Tyrers Building will have a £1million refurb undertaken by Paul's company, and will help to regenerate the town centre.

    St Helens town centre manager Gary Maddock said: "It’s great to see a local developer invest in the area and convert an empty building in to a viable scheme which will benefit the whole community.

    “Investment is key to attracting new businesses and footfall so we are excited to see Luxor’s development come to fruition and make a positive contribution to St Helens.”

    Wow, well done!  And all that with just his own and commercial lending it seems, and so young!

    Loving the look of that building in St Helens town centre.  I wouldn't be too surprised if grants were forthcoming for such a project?

    I have a bit of a soft touch for St Helens, after having one property up there which I visited a fair few times while refurbishing (to sell!) after it got trashed by tenants.  Met some lovely tradesmen though:-)

    Good point about knowing your area and market!   I had another property in the Wirral which funnily enough also got treated badly with non-payment of rent, which I sold too!

    Well done to Paul for getting it right in his own well-understood area!

    Hi

    Section 24 I think is a disaster for those that have owned properties in their own name and really shame. It could cause havoc for some people, especially smaller landlords.

    Stamp duty has already seen an impact to a certain extent and was also a factor in my reason to acquire commercial property to convert to residential property.

    Brexit for a period has attracted more international investment as the pound weakened - whether this is a good thing for our economy is a different question!

    The letting fee ban will certainly have an impact especially on the smaller letting agent but whether rents will actually increase to pass the fees on we wait to see. I'm not sure I'll be increasing my rents as a consequence but I'm looking enough to have my own office to deal with my lettings.

    it seems all these changes have been put in place to frustrate the smaller landlord who went into it to supplement their income which seems a bit unfair

    I think the attack on Small Landlord has not had an impact yet

    My own thoughts are the days of the small Landlord are ending

    The only way forward is the Ltd Co Landlord but this has drawbacks in the property investment world

    I realised that the headline tax rate will fall between 50% to 60% in the future years

    I also think more regulation will come our way maybe even rent control

    I admire what you are doing and in my opinion growth in property prices will see the strongest growth in the uk

    I also believe with all of the changes we are all in for a rocky ride

    I have not invested I property for over 2 years because I see more danger than I do good

    But I feel long term BTL will still bring rewards

    Rent control would possibly see the end of the private landlord! I think they would be crazy to impose that as without private landlords a lot of people would not have housing

    Rent Control would be madness but the mad govt in London still brought in S24 and Stamp Duty on second homes

    I really believe the Govt is out to get us and I would be surprised if the attack was over

    We are hated and have few Allies I always thought that a Tory Govt would support us

    Its the Political Mood which I find alarming what will they do next to stop the Landlord

    Let's hope they see sense otherwise I'll become an estate agent to deal with the masses of properties hitting the market!
