    Thanks. Interesting.

    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Tenant selection: In my case I would not let to anyone with UK roots, and have not done so for some time. All of my tenants are foreign nationals with a clear temporary reason to be in the UK. Discriminating against locals is not racism I guess in the brave new world.

        Rate of rent: The highest possible in case later capped at current values (coupled with no-deposit)

        Retaining as much liquid capital as possible which means some selling up: When Corbyn has crashed the economy and fully destroyed the future of our youth I'll decide how best to spend.

          The government "strategy", if it can be called that, is indeed to import millionaires but after the incompetence they have shown in the last few months will they want to come here. There will be other pandemics, there will be climate change - New Zealand is looking pretty good right now..
