Great North October 2018 Meeting 

Homebuilding and Renovation From £2K to £4M in 3.5 years - Yvonne Emery

After building a portfolio of 27 HMO’s in 3.5 years, Yvonne and her husband wanted to find something bigger to renovate.

Highfields was a derelict, fire damaged Victorian Mansion on a 2 acre plot that had been left to rot for 10 years.  They saw its potential and renovated the property and now they have built 5 houses on the remaining acre of land.

When they started they had just £2k in the bank. They arranged an exchange and delayed completion and nearly didn’t have the money to complete!.

During this presentation, Yvonne, will share the secrets to

  • How she raised £150,000 in 24 hours without using crowd funding
  • Taking a bold step in property
  • How to borrow £1m
  • Turning investing into a business and
  • How to make sure you are investing the right way for you.

Be prepared for a whirlwind tour of how you can grow your portfolio exponentially and turn your investing into a business opportunity!

The EPC, a Tax on the Landlord or a way to save the planet? Mike Edward

Love them or hate them, the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is part of a landlord’s life now.  Are they worth the paper that they are printer on?

Mike has been carrying out EPC surveys since they were introduced in 2007 and has a wealth of experience in helping landlords achieve the required standards without wasting money.

During his presentation, Mike will show what information is required to complete the EPC and how that information is used.  Along the way he will share energy saving tips and bring real life examples of improvement that were made following an EPC Survey.

The EPC has a lot of information, Mike will show you how to read this and make use of it.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulation came into effect on April 1st 2018, Mike will explain the next steps and what you must do to ensure that you are not breaking the law and risking a £5,000 fine.
