    Where to next in order to grow portfolio?

    DL, the OP said in an earlier post that both him and his wife are on decent salaries just below 50k - so in total I guess their salary income is between 90-100k p.a.

    well that puts a different  view on it all together

    I thought it may be the case that they would be close to 40%

    Taking equity from the home may not be as simple as it sounds S24 would really cause issues

    If it was me I would sell the currant home Buy a new one with a good deposit and pay Nil Stamp duty because they are replacing there home

    If they really want to expand in BTL I would use good cash reserves lend the Money to there company and buy more BTL via the company

    But they need clear good advice before they do anything

    I think a Lot of Accountants look upon this sort of thing as fringe

    S24 only effects Landlords and I know when it first arrived I educated my own accountant

    she was under the impression that if a Landlord was a 20% tax payer it would have no effect

    I call it a Cunning Tax

    Regards DL

    Why make life more difficult. Sit with what you have and take stock. Remember things are going to get a lot worst over the coming months recession already in Europe and taking hold in the UK. Many landlords who are over extended will get cleaned out and there will be lots of cheap properties to buy. Sit back enjoy the summer.

    I think your right I think bargains  will come

    even in the NE the market is getting top heavy

    Buy at the correct yield and you know you have a bargain 

    if your not getting the yield its not right to buy it

    If you are nearing the 40 % tax rate , you could both pay more into your pensions to keep you as basic rate taxpayers.

    Also ,  I thought that the extra 3% stamp duty HAD to be paid on any other property if you already owned one.  I don't understand DL saying that you wouldn't have the extra stamp duty to pay
