“I am a secretary and have been living and working in Gibraltar for many years. I am a UK national and had some savings in a building society where rates were not wonderful! My sister (Claire Floret – who has also provided a testimonial) who lives in France, told me of her idea of purchasing a property in UK to rent out for an income. At first we thought that with a property not being in the same country, it could be difficult to deal with any problems arising such as keeping it rented out, bills and dealing with tenants etc. We initially thought that it may be better to buy something nearer to where we lived. However, after contacting Find UK Property and receiving full information and advice and being informed that they dealt with everything as well as offering a reduced rate of 7% instead of 8% in return for a guaranteed rental income, my sister decided to go ahead first. And after seeing the whole procedure go so smoothly for her, I decided that I would go down the same route! I did however, want to make a visit and see the company, the properties and the locations myself. I travelled to Manchester and was picked up from the airport and taken to the office and then to see the properties. I also met the solicitors who would later complete the property purchase on my behalf. They attested my ID documents so I did not need to visit again at property purchase completion. After the visit, I was happy to proceed with the purchase. Everything went smoothly and all paperwork was signed and completed by the end of the day. Subsequently I completed the payments, and the property was transferred to me. During this process I was kept fully updated by the admin staff at Find UK Property. At the time of writing this testimonial, I have owned my property for over a year, and so far, so good! I have been getting my rental income regularly and I have also registered with the tax authorities so that my rental income will be paid tax free. Any questions I have are always answered promptly and efficiently. What I like best is the fact that as I am abroad most of the time I don’t have to worry about keeping tenants in the property. I also like the firm’s friendly, personal and professional service. I would recommend Find UK Property to others in my position, i.e., wanting a good return on investment and living abroad.”
