    Investing in Benwell

    Hi. Thanks a lot for the contributions on this forum over the years. Thanks to everyone here I’ve definitely became a better landlord.

    Just wondering if anyone has been investing in Benwell and more generally in NE4. I was wondering if any landlord here can share their experience about those postcodes - the types of tenants they attract, if there are neighborhoods one should avoid and if there is a difference between North and South Benwell...

    Thanks a lot

    I lived in Ladykirk Road, Benwell over thirty years ago when I studied at Newcastle Uni. I shared a run-down, upper 'Tyneside flat' with two other students. It was a muti-cultural area then, with a proportion of cheap-rent housing stock and a significant number of students. Since then, much more purpose-built student accommodation has become available in the city. I still drive through Benwell now and again and, apart from some of the student population which will have moved out, the area still retains much of the original character that I recall.

    Hi Satokinx,

    Wonderful to hear that Property Tribes has helped you become a better Landlord!

    What is drawing you to Benwell/NE4? Is the area local to yourself?

    I was a Special Constable in the West End and there is some really bad places

    If your not from the Area I would say be very careful indeed unless you know the area like the back of your hand stay clear

    Im not sure if you relise but Newcastle City Council are in consultation to have every Property in the City to have a Licence

    at a cost of £750 per property

    Believe  me that are not easy to deal with and give Landlords a hard time

    the BBC inside out program had a feature about Licence and it was spotlight was on the Benwell area 

    Personally as a Newcastle Landlord I would not invest there It was not long ago when you could buy a flat for 50p

    Think very hard before you commit
