Planning Information


The Plan

This is ideal for an investor wanting a low priced buy to let, with the potential of a high yield, using the 3 or 4 bed Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates, which for this year stand at £136.93 pw / £592 pcm and £201.37 pw and £871.93 pcm.

Alternatively, the property can be used as a let to a working family, which would generate around £550 pcm.
