I was wondering how many of you pros out there own more houses than you live in. It seems to me that I go round improving peoples houses and they make as much money or more than me for less work and less effort. Hence my thinking that I should get into this property development game. After all as a corgi reg person with my skills, knowledge and contacts surely I should be better at it than some of these useless twits you see on TV who don't know one end of the spanner from the other. Currently I live with my fiance in our jointly owned house. If we were to buy another house and do it up then what are the tax implications. After all 2 of us, own 2 houses or does it not work like that. Would it be better for each of us to own one house, one we live in and then one to buy and sell on. Any one know of any good websites on simple to understand Capital Gains Robbery. I don't know if I fancy the hassle of being a landlord - rather buy and then flog it. I know that this is not truely a plumbing question but it is the only forum that I really ever read!
