    The big bad ass Brexit brief for landlords



    With B-Day fast approaching for the UK's departure from the EU, I thought it might be helpful to curate all our discussions on the impact of Brexit on landlords, tenant demand, and the housing market.

    It's definitely worth noting that not everyone investing in property will be a loser because of Brexit!. 

    At the time of greatest fear is the same time when massive profits can be made for those who see the angles and/or those who remain true to their original vision and do not falter.

    This resource features some truly insightful quotes from some of the world's top investors about how they dealt with challenging times and uncertainty.



    When we look back in 10 years time, I am certain that fortunes will have been made during this time.

    To that end, I have curated all our Brexit discussions in one place, so landlords can "mine" the intel and survive the Brexit storm.  As always, there will be plain sailing the other side and it's always positive to have a business where demand will always be there - a bit like Victor Kiam bought Remington shavers because mens' beards will always grow.

    Announced today:

    Targets for new homes are likely to be missed by half of England’s local authorities, according to a damning assessment of the government’s housing strategy, while increasingly profitable building companies are getting away with paying less for infrastructure and more than half of councils have failed to draw up adequate plans to solve the housing crisis.

    The National Audit Office (NAO) concludes that the planning system in England is “not working well” and says councils are struggling to negotiate successfully with developers, leaving swaths of the country vulnerable to either housing shortages or situations where the wrong homes are built in the wrong places.

    The report says only 44.1% of local authorities had up-to-date plans setting out how they could meet the need for new homes.

    What makes an entrepreneur successful ?  The answer is when they see something others miss.

    Life will go on after the exit

    I see great opportunities in the UK

    In my opinion it’s a fuss over nothing

    I think the north will lose NISSAN  but we have lost bigger in the past and we survived 

    I am just going to get on with life

    I remember when we were not part of the "evil empire" and life was good then and it will be good in the future

    Agreed - I've always thought Brexit was what I call a bfon (big fuss over nothing). The country won't suddenly disappear off the map, nor will the population suddenly halve. It would take an incurable plague for the latter to occur. The media are short of real news so keep dishing out loads of (mostly) meaningless waffle, spouted by politicians, every single day... ad nauseam.

    What has battered demand for BTLs in my area (the midlands) is the bubble bursting for the car industry. The market has suddenly changed - companies like JLR, headquartered here, have been knocking out petrol and diesel vehicles as a cash cow - suddenly, such engines are no longer eco-friendly (especially diesels which often belch out foul clouds of black gunge when the driver in front put his/her foot down), the government has set a deadline for them to be banned, so suddenly electric vehicles at the in thing, and the car companies are having to play catch-up.The result is, JLR are laying off 4500 to 5000 employees and cutting back production. Now we hear that Honda is going to close its Swindon plant.

    I have only one empty property at present, and there's normally a lull at this time of year, so I'm sitting tight.

    ``What makes an entrepreneur successful ?  The answer is when they see something others miss.``

    True

    But also others can often see something clearly before their very eyes

    But they just don`t act - often through fear and procrastination

    I haven't been through everything, so this might be presumptuous, but because credit is the biggest fuel to the house price fire, what are the prognoses for rising rates in the face of rising inflation?

    Inflation actually dropped below expectations this month - down to 1.8%.

    Do you mean rising interest rates or rising house prices?

    I mean rising interest rates on the back of higher inflation. Yes, inflation was recorded as 1.8% but we're still in the single market. When we leave, especially under a no deal scenario, there appears to be a good chance tariffs will be placed on all trade to and from the EU and that will likely have an inflationary pressure on goods and services bought and sold between the two partners. The BOE, in the face of inflationary pressure, would likely raise rates.

    Gotcha!  Thanks for clarification.  I guess all we can do as landlords is change "what if's ...?"  into "how to's ...?".  A good friend once said to me that there is no point in worrying about something, because if it doesn't happen, you've suffered for nothing, and if it does happen, you've suffered twice.

    I guess I am saying no one really knows, so we have to stick to our plan and face the challenge if and when it arises.

    Another quote I like is "worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair, rocking away, wasting your energy, and thinking that you will get somewhere"!.
