My name is Phil and I am an experienced landlord and property investor. The number of properties I own in my portfolio is usually between 12 and 16 at any one time, including commercial properties, in addition to a few garages and a property on the Costa del Sol in Southern Spain. I have been active in the local property market since the early 90’s. I also own a Letting and Estate Agency business that manages approximately 300 rental properties in the NP postcode & surrounding areas. In addition to the above I am also a qualified mortgage broker specialising in Buy to Let mortgages! I genuinely feel all of the above puts me in a stronger position than most to offer any property related advice, information and guidance.
