William Lewis is passionate about property and specifically property in Liverpool: "Liverpool has so much to offer an investor. The people are amongst the friendliest I've met! Since 2008, I have personally been investing in Liverpool. During this time, I've constructed an internal knowledge of the streets/areas to avoid and the good ones! There is a lot of regeneration, but there are good and bad schemes. As a city to invest in, we continue to witness strong demand from tenants, ensuring rental levels remain high and strong returns on capital". The City frequently features amongst the 'best places to invest in the UK'".
Liverpool is popular with tourists due to its rich history, culture and extensive sporting and musical events that take place in the City. There is a large student population owing to the excellent universities, whilst the recent introduction of a ‘Freeport’ to Liverpool is a significant boost to this already thriving City.

Create Investment Strategy
Based on specific requirements, we create a proposal that will meet your property investment objectives. This may be a single strategy or it could be a mix of different property purchases in varying locations.
As a property sourcer in Liverpool, we search for appropriate properties, conduct viewings and negotiate the best conceivable purchase price. A brochure outlining the opportunity, inclusive of numbers, property images and video walk-throughs (if permissible) is presented.
Offer Accepted / Appointing Others
It is also essential to get the survey out of the way at the early stages; if any hidden problems are highlighted, we will negotiate with the vendor to rectify the issues or gain a further reduction in the property price. Regarding carrying out a survey, we recommend a complete structural survey or, at the very least, a homebuyer's report by an RICS qualified surveyor. We have extensive contacts and will be pleased to recommend a suitable company.
Solicitors - You reserve the property; we instruct solicitors experienced in investment properties and buy-to-let properties in the UK. We case manage the property through conveyancing and support you to ensure you get all the correct checks & documentation.
We will remain in communication with the estate agents & solicitors to advance the sale right through to the exchange of contracts, completion and collection of keys.
We manage any refurbishment and ensure the project is delivered on time, to specification and within budget. Tradespeople are just one part of our team.

We ensure you are fully compliant and your Liverpool investment property is let out to great tenants.
