To Rent or Buy?

We regularly answer consumer property questions for FREE via our Property Forum.

Here's just one of the many property questions we have recently answered:-

Q - We will be returning from Spain to the UK next year. We will be in a position to pay around £300,000 cash for a property, probably an apartment, possibly in Devon. Would we be better off renting and investing the £300,000?  SEE THE FULL QUESTION HERE

A - Unfortunately with the information you've given we can't give you a full answer. To assess your situation we'd need to go through your personal financial circumstances now and in the future and go through your personal preferences. Plus, information about whether you'd need access to the £300k within the next 5-10 years. We'd then need to understand why Devon, do you know exactly where you want to live? Will you be staying in the UK all year round or be going back to Spain? Things like your health are important as are whether you have children and want to leave the property to them or not.  FULL ANSWER CONTINUED HERE!
