With the British pound at a 31-year low, there are immediate advantages to investing in the UK market. The currency exchange means you can get a lot more for your money. Add to that low interest rates, and the supply/demand imbalance and the returns on investment look promising, thanks to stable home prices and rentals.

You can start earning a rental income immediately by buying secondary stock.

So, what should you look for when buying a completed property?

•     Length of lease – check this is reasonable. Over 100 years is acceptable.

•     Age of building – remember that while a completed property may not be in the same pristine condition as a new one, you will be able to add equity by renovating to improve its condition.

•     Organise your finances – having an Agreement in Principle arranged with your bank or mortgage lender will put you in a stronger position than other buyers as you will know how much you can borrow, without affecting your credit score.

•     Service charge - this is often lower with an older property, potentially increasing the investment yield. 

•     Resale potential – consider the property’s aspect and view and how it may be impacted in future as this will affect its value. This is easier to judge when a property is completed and can be viewed, and is a very important consideration in areas like Canary Wharf.

•     Move quickly once you’ve put an offer in.
