Investor Profile

Chris Ramsey – UK
This was Chris’s first investment property. Coming from a background in accounting Chris was nearing retirement age and wanted to create an additional income stream to help support himself and his family.

“From my very first contact to the current day it has been an absolute pleasure working with the various teams at Modus Property. So much so that dealing with them doesn’t feel like work, it’s contacting a friend. And yet it is all done so professionally, from the support given in finding and purchasing my property, the incredible transformation carried out by the refurbishment team (all supported by weekly videos to keep me updated), the hard work put in by the utility team to set up the necessary services with minimal input from myself, to the swift efforts of the letting team in getting tenants in place at the earliest opportunity.

All this backed up by a director who really cares about giving the best service possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Modus Property to anyone else and will be using them again for my next project.”

The property comes with permission to convert back to residential use. The refurbishment works will include the removal of internal walls to open up each floor prior to the insertion of stud walls to create a high quality HMO compliant property. This will create 4/5 bedrooms (en-suite where possible), kitchen/living space, and bath/shower rooms.

The property was orginally to be converted into a 5 Bedroom property but was refurbed to a higher spec 4 Bed so each room had its own en-suite. With the Kitchen located in the cellar tanking work was also required, but the project still came in on budget and on time. All rooms within the property were let swiftly through Modus Lets, and the property has continued to bring home a strong ROI.
