Thinking of investing in buy-to-let? This is how I’d do it!

Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

I’d suggest buying shares in The PRS REIT (LSE: PRSR) is a much better idea for those wanting to grab a slice of the property market.The PRS REIT creates, owns and operates newbuild family homes in the private rented sector (hence PRS). It’s a particularly good alternative for would-be buy-to-let investors too. It removes the day-to-day commitment and rising costs modern landlords need to deal with. And it’s a company which is creating homes at an eye-popping pace to capitalise on the fertile trading environment and drive profits growth.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Growth in middle-aged rentersOffice for National Statistics (ONS) data this week revealed the size of this opportunity. Apparently, a third of people aged 35-44 years in England were renting from a private landlord in 2017. This compares with fewer than 1 in 10 in 1997.As the ONS notes people in this age group — ones which are more likely to rent family homesteads from the likes of PRS — move from renting in their early adult life into home ownership by around this time as they take out mortgages and receive inheritances.The number of people owning their own homes in this demographic has fallen for a variety of reasons though. Sure, mortgage rates might be at rock-bottom levels right now and Help to Buy gives first-time buyers an extra lift onto the ladder.However, a shortage of new homes for ownership, a problem that’s caused property prices to balloon and created the need for sky-high deposits, means more and more of those in their 30s and above remain stuck in the rental sector.Better than buy-to-letAs I say, this is a trend PRS has plans to exploit to its fullest by turbocharging production of its homesteads.  In the three months to December, it built 256 new units, up markedly from 188 in the prior quarter. This took the total of homes on its books to 1,617. Consequently, its annual rent roll has improved to £14.9m, up £2.6m from levels seen in September.And why wouldn’t it be so keen to expand? Booming demand means that 98% of its homes were rented as of the end of 2019. No wonder it has a further 3,300 homes under construction across 42 sites. When its current development pipeline is completed, it will have built 5,400 homes, predominantly in major regions in the North of England and the Midlands.I understand why people buy-to-let investment has picked up again more recently. A shortage of available rental properties continues to drive rents higher (up 1.4% year-on-year in December, according to the ONS). But rising tax liabilities, increasing running costs and greater regulation is, for many people, soaking up these increased incomes.Investing in rental properties is a good idea but only if it’s done correctly. And PRS REIT, with its 5.6% dividend yields, is a great way to get rich from the rental market.

It brings visitors in a ritual manner from the parking area to the building, distributes them within it, passing below the open-air terrace and penetrating the private areas, and terminates at the open view of the sea. The mass of the stairway creates an amphitheatrical layout on the communal terrace with its sea view to the west.

The roofs have been planted, and thus the building becomes part of the landscape. The apertures in the elevations with their marked rhythmical alternation give expression to the rational structure and the paratactic arrangement of the premises in the interior of the building. The interiors have been laid out with as little household equipment as possible so that the experience of surrounding space predominates in the activities of residence.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessmodeLab Algorithmic Design in GrasshopperArticlesBloomberg Announces Plan For Downtown BrooklynArticles Share Summer House in Naxos / Ioannis Baltogiannis, Phoebe Giannisi, Zissis Kotionis, Katerina Kritou and Nikolaos PlatsasSave this projectSaveSummer House in Naxos / Ioannis Baltogiannis, Phoebe Giannisi, Zissis Kotionis, Katerina Kritou and Nikolaos Platsas CopyAbout this officeIoannis BaltogiannisOfficeFollowPhoebe GiannisiOfficeFollowZissis KotionisOfficeFollowKaterina KritouOfficeFollowNikolaos PlatsasOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNaxosHousesMies van der Rohe AwardGreecePublished on December 11, 2012Cite: “Summer House in Naxos / Ioannis Baltogiannis, Phoebe Giannisi, Zissis Kotionis, Katerina Kritou and Nikolaos Platsas” 11 Dec 2012.

More young people volunteering as overall rates remain consistent

first_img  162 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Melanie May | 10 November 2016 | News Future expectationsnfpSynergy also asked people about their volunteering plans for the future, and found that in general, groups who were already volunteering the most expect to increase their volunteering more than others, including regular worshippers, charity donors and those of a high social grade.The two youngest age groups (16-24 and 25-34) are two times more likely to expect to increase their time spent volunteering than the average individual. According to nfpSynergy, however, this is largely due to greater uncertainty amongst other age groups, and particularly with the over 65s, the life changes that often come with getting older. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19  161 total views,  1 views today More than 21m people volunteer in the UK at least once a year, with 9% of the adult population accounting for 51% of all volunteering hours, according to figures from nfpSynergy.The figures on volunteering show that rates have remained fairly consistent over the past ten years while the gender gap has diminished and the proportion of young people volunteering has increased.Roughly a fifth of people said they had given time as a volunteer for an organisation or in the local community in the three months prior to being questioned. This has remained fairly consistent since 2003, according to the nfpSynergy data.Who volunteers?People from a higher social grade are much more likely to volunteer: 25% of those from households in the £40,000 income bracket, and people who have given money in the last three months (23%) are also much more likely to have volunteered in the same period than those who have not (10%).Young people aged 16-34, and the over 65s are more likely to have volunteered for a charity over a three-month period compared to other groups, with students in higher education the most likely group to volunteer: twice as likely in the last four weeks compared to other age groups.Regular worshippers are also more likely to have volunteered in a given three-month period (43%) than others (21%). However, the report suggests that doing unpaid work for a religious group or place of worship could count as volunteering in some of these cases, which may partly explain the differences between volunteering rates of regular and non-regular worshippers.No more gender gapAccording to the report, when it comes to rates of volunteering, the gender gap has closed over the last decade. While women consistently volunteered more than men until 2009, this trend has not persisted over the last five years and the proportion of men and women who have volunteered in a three-month period is the same, at 21%.

Zeta hosts Bright Pink workshop

Bright Pink is a non-profit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Over 300 TCU women attended the workshop held in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom. The workshop was interactive, having the audience use their cell phones to quiz each other on their knowledge about breast and ovarian cancer. “It was cool to take the quiz to see how at risk I am. That’s something I want to send to my friends so they know too,” Brooke Battaglia, a sophomore nursing major, said.From the reactions, people said they were surprised to learn they did not know as much about breast and ovarian cancer as they thought.  “I was shocked by how prevalent breast cancer is and how little I knew about the risk factors and what to do,” Battaglia said. “Going forward I’m just going to take the advice she gave us about our diet, exercise, and being self-aware.”  Those who attended the workshop learned about the risk factors, symptoms and what to talk about with their doctor.“A good piece of advice I would say is self-awareness,” Mersch said. “Be self-aware, not just in your health history, not just thinking about breast and ovarian cancer, but really just self-awareness about who you are, what you want in life, the choices that you’re making because that is just good life-long advice for anyone.”Mersch said she hopes that workshops like this take away the fear factor when talking about breast and ovarian cancer and make people more familiar and understanding when something is not normal.  Sophomore Kiana Stephen, a member of ZTA who planned the workshop, said education was an important part of the event. “Our goal with this is just to educate women at this age because it’s better to know now than too late about breast cancer about what they can do to help their chances of not getting it or what they should do if they’re high risk,” Stephen said.In November, Zeta is hosting their philanthropy event, Mr. ZTA, to raise money for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. The foundation benefits breast cancer research and education. For more information on Bright Pink, you can visit its website.

Garrett Podell Garrett Podell ReddIt printTCU is just one win away from qualifying for a bowl game.The Frogs could claim their sixth victory Saturday when they face the No.11 Oklahoma State Cowboys. “Bowl games are important not for just the game but because it means you won more than you lost,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “It’s about keeping your job.”Patterson said it doesn’t matter what bowl the Horned Frogs make. “There’s not a bad bowl,” Patterson said. “We’ve been in 16 bowls in 18 years and I’d love to make it 17 of 19.”Saturday marks Patterson’s 200th game as head coach. “I’d rather get to 150 wins than coach 200 games but it’s hard to stick around at one place in college football today,” Patterson said.With a 148-51 record as head coach, Patterson is two games away from surpassing Dutch Meyer who coached 201 games. The Cowboys’ offense represents a significant challenge. OSU quarterback Mason Rudolph has the fifth-most passing yards in the nation with 3384 passing yards to go along with 24 touchdown passes and just four interceptions. “They’re probably the best passing attack in the Big 12,” TCU defensive end James McFarland said. OSU wide receiver James Washington is second in the Big 12 and eighth in the nation with 1,132 receiving yards, wide receiver Jalen McCleskey leads the Cowboys in catches with 62 and wide receiver Jhajuan Seales averages 15.9 yards per catch.However, Oklahoma State has allowed the most sacks in the Big 12, and TCU leads the Big 12 in sacks per game and is No. 2 in the country, averaging 3.78 sacks per game. OSU’s defense ranks 72nd nationally in points allowed, 29.3 points allowed per game. The Horned Frog offense was red-hot when they thumped Baylor 62-22 earlier this month.The Horned Frogs will likely lean on running back Kyle Hicks, who ran for a career-high 192 yards and five touchdowns against the Bears. “He’s been stellar all season long and we depend on him,” TCU wide receiver John Diarse said. “Kyle has a nose for making plays.”Hicks is one of five running backs in the nation with over 700 yards rushing and 300 yards receiving.

FCC, clarifying several issues with regard to consumer and industry rights pertaining to robocalls and texts sent to consumers.ACA International challenges the FCC’s interpretations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), as laid out in a July 2015 Omnibus Declaratory Ruling and Order. At issue were four particular questions pertaining to the interpretation of TCPA rules. As laid out on ACA International’s website, ACA focused their arguments on three areas: “the definition of an ‘automatic telephone dialing system,’ the identity of the ‘called party’ in the reassigned number context, and the means by which consent can be revoked.”During the 2017 ACA Convention and Expo in Seattle, ACA’s Corporate Counsel Karen Scheibe Eliason told attendees, “ACA sought judicial determination of whether the FCC ignored the controlling statute in order to expand the scope and reach of the TCPA in a way that Congress never intended, leaving a law in place that hurts legitimate, law-abiding businesses.”The Court of Appeals sided with the FCC when it came to issues of consent revocation. The Appeals Court’s cites and supports the FCC’s argument that “‘a called party may revoke consent at any time and through any reasonable means’—whether orally or in writing—‘that clearly expresses a desire not to receive further messages.”On the topic of what constitutes a robocaller or “‘automatic telephone dialing system,” the Court sided with ACA, pointing out that the FCC’s previous interpretation could lead to unintended consequences such as ordinary people suddenly finding themselves in violation of the law simply by making use of their smartphone. The opinion reads:“Imagine, for instance, that a person wishes to send an invitation for a social gathering to a person she recently met for the first time. If she lacks prior express consent to send the invitation, and if she obtains the acquaintance’s cell phone number from a mutual friend, she ostensibly commits a violation of federal law by calling or sending a text message from her smartphone to extend the invitation.”Finally, the Appeals Court sided with ACA with regard to instances where a robocaller calls an existing number that has been reassigned, thus inadvertently making an unsolicited call to a person with whom the organization does not have a prior business relationship or express consent to receive calls. Previous FCC interpretations had allowed for one mistaken call to a given number under these circumstances, but ACA argued that that number was arbitrary.Although the court sided with ACA against the FCC on two of the three issues, current FCC Chairman Ajit Pai released a statement that actually supported the ruling. Pai, who dissented against the 2015 FCC clarification, said, “Today’s unanimous D.C. Circuit decision addresses yet another example of the prior FCC’s disregard for the law and regulatory overreach. As the court explains, the agency’s 2015 ruling placed every American consumer with a smartphone at substantial risk of violating federal law. That’s why I dissented from the FCC’s misguided decision and am pleased that the D.C. Circuit too has rejected it.”FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly also voiced his support of the Appeals Court’s interpretation, releasing a statement that read, “I am heartened by the court’s unanimous decision, which seems to reaffirm the wording of the statute and rule of law. This will not lead to more illegal robocalls but instead remove unnecessary and inappropriate liability concerns for legitimate companies trying to reach their customers who want to be called.”Sen. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts) was less enthused by the ruling. “The D.C. Circuit Court invalidated core protections that help give consumers reasonable control over their mobile devices,” Markey said. “It is now the FCC’s obligation to use its existing authority to reestablish robust, enforceable protections to enhance the precious zone of privacy created by the law.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Journal, News, Technology ACA International v.

S. Act. The Petitioner has been in custody for more than five years. The Petitioner pleaded that there is little possibility of trial concluding in the near future. The State while opposing the prayer for bail submitted that the petitioner was one of the members of the gang who was found in possession of a huge cache of fire arms and explosives.The Justices remarked that allegations against the petitioner are grave. And witness action has already commenced.The Court observed that the prayer for bail of co-accused has also been turned down by a co-ordinate bench of this Court.In view of the aforesaid facts, the Bench did not consider it prudent to enlarge the petitioner on bail merely on the plea there is delay in trial due to the prevailing pandemic and rejected the bail application.”However, we are not unmindful of the protracted period of under-trial detention suffered by the petitioner.”added the Bench.The Justices while relying upon Hussain Vs. Union of India, 2017 (5) SCC 720, reiterated that the Apex Court has proposed a uniform target to conclude trial in sessions cases where under-trials are in detention for two years and in magistrate triable cases where the detention is six months and more. The Bench concluded by issuing directions to the trial courts to commence the trial proceedings. Next Storylast_img read more
