Despite the current volatility in housing markets around the world, property ownership continues to be seen as safer and more reliable than many other types of investment. However, property investment remains a complex business - for example, what type of investment is best for a portfolio? Has every single expense been accounted for in renovating that 'bargain' property? What exactly are the implications of the credit crunch and the sub-prime market for the average property investor? The Complete Guide to Investing in Property looks at all aspects of generating money from property - whether that be by renting out spare rooms to lodgers, property development, buying land, holiday rentals or becoming a landlord. Fully updated for this fourth edition, it takes a fresh look at investing in the social housing market and using property as part of a pension plan, as well as providing commentary on the latest legislative developments governing landlords and tenants.
