There’s never been a better time to get into the buy-to-let property sector, according to Richard Martin, chairman of Martin & Co, one of the UK’s largest property letting companies.
Martin believes that proposals in the Chancellor’s Finance Bill allowing buy-to-let properties to be used as part of the owner’s pension provision, make this an ideal time to get into the buy-to-let sector.
Launched as a franchise in 1995, Martin and Co already has 100 offices in the UK and they are looking to expand nationwide.
You will need to put up an initial investment of £20,000 and the company will then support and help you with the funding for shop front premises to set up your business.
The Company has just seen the launch of two new franchises in Leeds. Richard Dixon and Alison Bell have opened an office in Leeds North and Mike Lambert and his wife Sue have opened in Leeds South.
Richard hails from Yorkshire and has been living in London, working as a stockbroker for the past 17 years. He says: “I’ve been looking at a way to move back to Yorkshire for a couple of years and the property route was of most interest, has the greatest potential and the most links with what I was doing in London. Buying into the name and brand of Britain’s most foremost property management and lettings franchise made a lot of sense.”
