Landlords and property investors spend a great deal of time and effort sourcing and negotiating the best BMV deals on investment properties for rental.
Many of these very same investors also spend a great deal of time, effort and money researching and buying supplies when refurbishing investment properties. To date this has been acceptable practice – but this now no longer needs to be the case.
Property investors will be excited to discover that LNPG has solved the refurbishment problem by offering massively discounted products, materials and supplies to member landlords through selected, nationally recognised organisations.
In addition to the discounts scheme, LNPG provides opportunities for residential property investment, a property lettings service and over the coming months, training and education programmes.
LNPG is currently formulating a Charitable Trust that will oversee a mentoring programme for young unemployed people. It will be created for landlords who can offer trade apprenticeships within the property refurbishment environment.
We are constantly looking to augment our group with reputable organisations who share a similar philosophy to ours.
Collectively LNPG has the strength to improve the way landlords purchase and therefore upgrade poor living accommodation and have a positive impact on local communities. I encourage all residential landlords to become members of LNPG.
For 21 of the 28 years Nick has worked in the financial services he ran his own financial services company with David Arundale. The business was responsible for millions of pounds of investors' money. This gave Nick a solid foundation on which to start his property investment journey.
Nick has grown his portfolio to 46 properties. He refurbishes these properties with his own team, giving him a unique insight to the needs of the landlord in the quality refurbishment of properties.
The notion that, when individuals work together towards a common goal, things can be achieved much faster with greater benefit to all became ever clearer.
The Landlords National Property Group is the culmination of this philosophy where, as a growing, commited group of landlords, we can drive change by reducing costs, improving accommodation and help to grow and unite communities.
