Leaders Romans Group is offering its landlord clients a new investment service.
‘Smart Investment’, powered by GetGround, is described as a fully digital and scalable service helping landlords operate through a limited company structure.
LRG says the number of landlords aiming to set-up a limited company to purchase a buy to let property reached 62 per cent in the second quarter of 2022 - up from 50 per cent in the first quarter of the year.
And - according to the same research by Paragon Bank, cited by LRG - the buy to let market continues to grow with two thirds of landlords planning to finance their next property investment through a BTL mortgage.
Landlords using the Leaders service will benefit from help with technical information such as company type, support with business accounts to manage their funds, and help with determining shareholders, share structure, and dividends for a monthly subscription fee.
Allison Thompson - National Lettings Managing Director at Leaders - comments: “We’re pleased to offer this market-leading Smart Investment service, powered by GetGround, to all landlords within our network, as well as new customers.
“With 40 years’ experience in the lettings business, landlords trust us to guide them through the lettings process, from sourcing an investment property through to managing buy to let portfolios and now, thanks to our new Smart Investment service, support in setting up and managing a limited company.
“Smart Investment is particularly suited to small to medium landlords, helping them to get the maximum return on investment and minimise risk. Via GetGround, our customers can benefit from a fully automated and integrated service with fits seamlessly with our existing lettings services.”
