Financial Services Expo organiser Front Events has launched a new expo for buy-to-let landlords called Property Finance Expo.

The event is aimed at both accomplished and first-time landlords in addition to investors and developers.

It will take place on 15 September 2016 at Old Billingsgate in Central London.

James Prosser, Front Events managing director, said: “Property Finance Expo has been designed to serve the needs of the professional property investor and for those considering entering the market.

“Located in the square mile of the city, it will deliver presentations that will help landlords develop their portfolios and provide solutions whilst keeping visitors abreast of this massively developing industry.

“At the show, you’ll be able to buy a property at the live auction, seek advice from advisers equipped to get the best deals for you and meet the companies actually open to fund your purchase – all in one day.”

The event will bring together a wide range of delegates as well as lenders and providers of all types of property funding including high street banks.

Property expert Kate Faulkner said: “One of the main reasons buy-to-let can be a successful investment is because you can gear it through mortgage finance.

“Surprisingly, around 30% of BTL investors don’t take advantage of gearing, potentially limiting their returns at a time when costs of investing in property are going up. 2016 is a year when new and existing landlords need all the expert help they can get.

“Top of that list should be understanding the different ways to finance property purchases for the future.”
