Hi. I have been a Dubai resident ( but born and bred in Birmingham) for 3 years and am still living there. My sister (lives in UK and is a home owner) and I would like to invest in a property to let. 50.50. I would not need the mortgage but my sister would. I have been told I need to be a UK resident to purchase a property. Is this the case? I have the cash but she doesn't. Thank you

Hi Mark,

I'd like to buy a property in the UK for investment purposes. I'd like to rent it out with the aim of generating a second income once the mortgage is paid off. What complications would I run into with regard to law or tax implications. I have never lived in the UK, but have an Irish passport. Thanks in advance.

Sir,
I am a UK citizen living in Canada and wish to purchase a studio or one-bed flat within the next 6 months. We will be returning to UK in about 3 years and in the meantime would like to purchase (cash) and rent out this property. Is the best way to find a 'reputable' agent that specializes in buy to let property and what are the tax implications for us?
Thank you for your help! Vivien
