Private landlord, or setup a company?
The age old debate i suspect, but I could not locate a thread dicussing the subject of whether a landlord should have a limited company or not. Can anyone recall one (a good one) and share a link, or offer their own experience?
Some research has generated mixed results in terms of professional advice, so it doesnt seem to be a question with an simple or right/wrong answer?
For the most part the commecrial activity in mind is buy-to-let, with a view to having a few properties accumulated over a period of several years. Very occasionally the activity might involve a renovate/ flip. The two activities might not need to take place under the same entity. At least that is the basis of thinking for which I am doing my research on. The properties would likely fall on the side of higher value so lower yield, as oppossed to a focus on max short-term yield- I say this as it might be relevant to the structure one selects given the considerations around tax and realising maximum return when retiring.
