You can invest in alternative property strategies such as Home’s of Multiple Occupancy (HMO’s), Student Lets, Lease Options, Holiday Lets, Commercial Property and many others.
You can also get potential property benefits indirectly by choosing a fund investing directly or indirectly in property, without buying property yourself. Examples include property unit trusts, property investment trusts, offshore property companies, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), and insurance company property funds.
Take advice from a qualified financial adviser who will match your risk appetite, timescales, income versus growth needs, tax position and other goals to recommend the most suitable investments for you.
If you are looking to buy commercial property, then it could be worth considering using your accumulated pension pots to but property via a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or a Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS), but will require specialist advice on this strategy as pensions are regulated investments.
