When you get to the question '...how much would you like to insure your contents for?', we know that some customers will have worked out their replacement costs down to their £34.99 kettle. Some however will look at you blankly or at best guesstimate the value. Calculating your customers contents is not easy so to help them ensure they have the right values in place and are not under-insured, we've created this handy contents calculator. You can use this during a quote or even e-mail it to your customers.
Around 55% of landlords are planning to expand their portfolios in the next six months according to research by Mortgages for Business. Of these the research shows that two-thirds will need to refinance.
The research, which polled 218 investors, suggests landlords appetite for more purchases stems from the attractive yields available on vanilla (residential) investments. High gross yields on residential property – which currently stand at 6.7% – are encouraging landlords to expand their portfolios even further.
Of those investors who intend to expand their portfolios this year, almost nine in ten (88%) plan on buying more residential property. Investment in complex property was less popular, although more landlords plan to purchase Houses in Multiple Occupation (26%) and Multi-Unit Freehold Blocks (16%). Fewer investors plan to buy semi-commercial property (11%) and commercial property (7%).
In total 43% of landlords say they will look to remortgage in the first half of 2013, up from 36% from six months ago, suggesting high yields – particularly on residential property – are encouraging more landlords to refinance.
