We finally decided to take the hit in selling our Spanish villa. The big question was what to do with the money?
Surprisingly, in our case the answer came to us easily and quickly. Savings accounts were and remain pretty pathetic. Going to the financial markets was for us at our age, in our seventies, not a good idea.
Living in Chester led us to consider putting our money into a Buy to Let property. Firstly we needed to learn some of the basics. We checked out some agents and found much information from them. We also found a very suitable brand new apartment just 10 minutes walk from the heart of thriving Chester.
We bought the apartment and soon decided to use Reed Raines as the agents for the Buy to Let. They have been excellent.
Their literature on letting is a boon: clear, informative, knowledgeable and thus so helpful. In effect the colleagues at the Chester Office have guided us through the whole letting process.
Corners have not been cut and we are now established with my wife as the apartment owner, because her taxable situation is more favourable than mine. As the landlady she has tenants on a 12 month lease and she is fully covered by all the relevant and protective insurance. Reeds Raines have done virtually everything. They found the tenants and checked their suitability;
They are the managing agents; we have indemnity insurance; contents insurance; etc. Everything is covered. My wife receives a monthly financial report of the income and expenditures from Reeds Raines. We are indebted to our agents who are so thorough, so professional.
