Aug 2017 Topic:

Developing outside London

Ryan Carruthers and Kim Stones merged their energy to concentrate on developments in the Lincoln market. From student housing, short lets following the AirBnB model and mixed use developments (commercial tenants on the ground floor with residential above), they have produced some amazing results. One project was named the project of the year by Shawbrook Bank.

Ryan will be sharing the main activities or tasks they handle each week. Ryan will also touch on how he built an online membership business focused on the Betfair platform.  All of this completed before he turned 30.

For London investors with cash to invest, how does 14% net yield sound? Yes, net. After all operating expenses. Not gross yield like most London sourcers tend to promote. While I am not suggesting you should invest in anything specific, come learn what such a deal looks like. You can improve how you search for an investment when you know what a great deal looks like.

Keep It Real

Each month we also hear from a few investors in the audience. People like you, who are not on the speaker circuit. People like you, sharing their journey, live, as it happens. Learning from doing while making better connections with your fellow investors. Most of the people John calls on have no warning that he will be putting them in the spotlight. You might be that person as your journey is interesting to others.

You can buy tickets for this month’s meet or future meets. See below. Just select the month.


Raising Money Legally for Joint Ventures

Jo Rogers & John Corey

Do you want to raise your game and attract funding for your deals? Have you heard that the FCA cares about what you are sharing? Many posts in the property Facebook groups are illegal. The crime is the sharing (posting on FB, by phone, in person) and not if a deal is done.

Jo is a legal expert (practicing lawyer raising funding for clients in two financial centers – NY and London). She is also a UK landlord who has experienced some of the pitfalls common to joint ventures.

I will provide an overview of the FCA regulations, how they apply and the issues if you have ‘overseas’ investors. Jo will lead us through best practice for structuring, negotiating, documenting and communicating with investment partners. She will be sharing some of her best ‘clauses’ or whole contracts for joint ventures. We will review case studies. The JV scorecard will be demonstrated with everyone scoring a deal they have done or want to do as a JV.

We will be hosting the next session on 15 July 2017. There are 18 spots available. We keep the group tight so we can have a lot of interaction and debate.
