I had joined Robert Jones Coaching with full confidence after scrutinising lots of big names in the real estate training industry in the UK.The Personal touch, the up to date knowledge, eager to serve, on top of his emails, to give his best and to give it all what he has. It was not only coaching what we got from Robert Jones but he worked together with me continuously for about 8 months to get me a fantastic very high rental yield HMO and provided me with the best team I would have asked for. Rob, I couldn’t have done better. You are a True Coach, Mentor, Real Estate Professional and to top it a very dear friend. We will do much more business together and will love to refer you for the real estate coaching and mentorship by Property Investments UK.
Very helpful support, highly qualified team, which makes the process of choosing and buying the property much easier. Looking forward for the cooperation in the future.
Rob has in-depth knowledge on the property market and has helped me acquiring my first buy-to-let investment property which currently yields a very good return. Looking forward to acquiring my second property in the near future and the assistance from Rob. A professional and excellent service that is highly recommended.

Property Joint Ventures
Our property joint ventures are where we work in partnership with our investor clients to purchase, refurbish and resell a property development. They range in location and price range, but are all typically short term projects of 9-12 months and involve ‘flipping’ / reselling the development after the value has been added with the refurbishment.
Joint Venture Deals Include
- Location – Often North West (locations are typically Manchester, Tameside, Salford, Chester, Cheshire, Wigan and Warrington)
- Purchase Prices – Starting from £100,000 for some projects although average property development size is circa £250,000
- Rental Yields – Our resale/flip projects vary in returns. For full example and current deals please contact us
- Condition – These are development projects with the potential to add value with refurbishments, planning gains, change of use or extensions
- Finance – Joint Venture developments often suit and favour speed. For that, we ensure all JV partners are cash investors and are classed as sophisticated investors. For a full breakdown of what this means and requires please contact us
A professional HMO is a house in multiple occupation (own bedroom and communal co-living space) that’s run for a particular tenant profile; professionals. Tenants of a professional HMO would all be in full-time employment and earning at a level where they are able to independently cover their own rent and bills.

- Condition – All recently refurbished to modern HMO standards of health and safety and tenant requirements

Social Housing HMO
This is a similar model to a professional HMO and includes co-living with tenants having their own bedrooms but sharing communal living space like lounges and kitchens. The difference here is the ‘social’ aspect of the tenant profile. How this typically works is the property owner will lease the property to a charity, housing association, or a for-profit company/organisation, who will, in turn, manage the property and utilise it for their own housing demand; providing accommodation and support for their social tenants.
Social Housing HMO Deals Include
- Location – Often town locations although some major cities, primarily in secondary and tertiary locations rather than competing with professional HMO prime city locations
- Purchase Prices – Starting from £120,000, average purchases around £140,000+
- Rental Yields – Ranging from 9% – 10% net yields
- Condition – All recently refurbished to provide the needs for HMO safety standards and the requirements of the lease provider and councils
- Finance – Often cash only purchases. There is a more corporate approach to financing if required as limited lenders compared to buy to let
A rental or buy to let property becomes a corporate buy to let when the owner decides that, instead of renting it out to an individual for the medium to long term, they are going to rent it out to a company or organisation for the short term.

Student buy to let properties are often straight forward rental properties that are however designed to appeal to the student market, in both location and design. Often featuring more communal and co-living features than a traditional buy to let apartment and often studios and shared living rather than self contained one or two bedroom traditional apartments.

These range from 4 unit buildings up to 20+ unit buildings and include a range of studios, 1 bed and 2 bed apartments, typically all with a professional tenant profile focus.

Frequently Asked Questions
1/ Can I View The Properties?
Viewings are available for buyers who have reserved a property and are proceeding with the purchase.
If the property is a New Build development viewings are available near the end of completion due to health & safety, but prior to that, you are certainly able to see the site location.
If the property is tenanted then it depends on the tenant profile if we can get internal access.
Professional buy to let properties are usually no problem, although the social housing HMO’s are difficult due to the nature of the tenant and the lease agreement.
However, due to the high number of inquiries we receive for the properties, we can’t arrange viewings for every potential buyer at the inquiry stage as this would disturb tenants unnecessarily.
So how does this work?
Once you have reserved a property and your solicitors start the conveyancing process you are more than welcome to view the property and if the property is anything other than described you can pull out of the purchase with no penalty, so you are 100% covered and there is no risk.
This protects you, the tenants and the seller.
However as we view all the properties on behalf of our clients, before they even go live on the site, and we carry out a photo and video inspection for many of our clients (especially overseas and out of area buyers) prefer these than a physical viewing as it’s often a more efficient use of time.
2/ How Do I Reserve a Property?
Simply contact us using the enquiry form above with the property address you wish to reserve.
Then the Process is:
- When you are ready to progress with a property you can make a reservation payment of £500.
- We will then take the property off the market and the sales process can start with all parties happy it’s secure & proceeding.
- We will then send a memorandum of sale to both your solicitors and the seller’s solicitors. This is a simple one-page letter confirming the buyer, seller, property address, target completion date and purchase price. You can use your own solicitor for your purchase so you can be 100% confident of the process.
3/ Are there any sourcing fees?
Some of the properties we secure come with only a minimal reservation fee of £500 and no other fees.
On average, however, the majority of our projects we charge a set sourcing fee at 3% of purchase price subject to a minimum sourcing fee of £3k per property if purchase below £100k.
For this sourcing fee, all pre-negotiation is carried out for you to achieve the best possible purchase price, terms and location properties with high yields and great rental condition.
This is fixed for all properties and is easily seen on our site so as a buyer you know you’re getting a fair and fixed price.
This sourcing fee is only payable once the property has exchanged.
4/ How long does the sales process take?
You can have the keys in your hand in just 28 days for most of the properties and many are already tenanted and earning so you have an income from day one of your purchase!
If you are buying cash or have your mortgage AIP (agreement in principle) ready, 28 days should be no problem, however if you need more time to purchase we can discuss this with the seller and negotiate it on your behalf at the offer stage so you can proceed in confidence knowing you have the time you need to complete.
5/ Where do the property deals come from?
Having been established in the UK buying property since 2005 and having a base in Manchester in the North West of England, we have been buying property deals ourselves and with clients for over 12 years.
We have built up long standing relationships with many contacts from estate agents, property agents, developers, landlords and solicitors, so we get introduced to many property deals often before they even come on the open market.
This network along with our own sourcing methods allows us to find and provide the very best exclusive direct to vendor property deals to our clients, coupled with strong local and industry knowledge to negotiate the very best purchase price and terms for our clients.
6/ Can you recommend letting agents or maintenance teams?
We can introduce you to letting agents, maintenance teams and any other contacts that you need to successfully build and manage your portfolio.
Some of our properties like the Social Housing HMO’s & Corporate Let’s come with full management in place!
These are the same teams and companies that look after our own personal properties and those of many of our clients.
For many of the properties we sell they will actually already come ready tenanted, recently refurbished and fully managed.
So you can proceed with confidence and know your property is being looked after from day one.
7/ If the deals are so good why don’t you buy them all?
Simply put we don’t have the funds to buy every deal we come across and our focus is strongly on specific joint venture projects which are often developments and conversions.
All development projects we source we offer to our Joint Venture investors.
All ready to let deals we source we provide as available deals to our ready to go investors on our property investment deal page here. This includes fully refurbished and ready tenanted buy to let’s, HMO’s & Corporate Let accommodation.
So all of our property deals are offered to clients allowing you to choose your preferred strategy and get access to the very best off-market property opportunities.
