London – April 2017 – A crack team of British professionals have joined forces to “capture the perfect storm” in the UK property market with the launch of their company Max Property Investment Group plc today which pays out 8% p.a. to investors as well as a 30% profit share. Adopting a corporate bond structure means that money is invested in property but it is the company rather than the investor that deals with the wave of financial, regulatory and practical challenges currently facing existing and aspiring landlords.
Managing Director and property educator, Mark Lloyd, says, “As property investors ourselves, we have been personally affected by the recent changes in the UK property market. We decided to turn a negative into a positive by creating a company that can help others avoid the problems we have been facing.”
The company’s Directors believe that with living costs rising, low interest rates, property prices in the UK fluctuating, as well as the weak Pound, there is an opportunity to be seized. “It’s at perfect storm”, says Mark Lloyd “The market is experiencing a lot of uncertainty and turbulence and that creates opportunities. If you know how to navigate the rapids, the UK property market can still be a very attractive way to generate returns for investors.”
But instead of investors directly investing in UK real estate Max Property is offering a fixed rate bond of 8% p.a. to investors with full management in place so that individuals can enjoy yields derived from UK property without the hassle of tax returns, deposits, repairs, property management, advertising and all other tasks and costs associated with private property ownership. Moreover, the much discussed buy-to-let tax changes coming into effect this month do not apply to properties under the ownership of a company, further influencing buy-to-let profitability.
Mark Lloyd, who owns a property sourcing company and spends his time giving seminars and workshops to aspiring property investors, has unique access to undervalued properties which further boosts the company’s ability to achieve healthy returns.
The company has partnered with Intertrust, the global leader in corporate and trustee services since 1952. Senior tax lawyer, formerly for HMRC, Paula Ruffell, says “We wanted to find a way to safeguard people’s money whilst maximising returns and making their investments tax efficient.”
The launch of Max Property UK follows the success of Max Property Fund in the Netherlands and precedes the launch of an additional property investment structure in Germany.
