We offer tailored services to investors in property, in short, making your money work way harder for you than simply leaving it in the bank
Returns are achieved through a single strategy, or a blended return from a combination of strategies, such as (but not limited to);
- profit through added value refurbishment or development, then sale;
- return of investment loans with interest through refinancing;
- ‘passive income’ through residential or commercial lettings;
- profit returns from Joint Venture projects in Limited Companies;
- long term Capital Appreciation from equity investments.
SLK is a Limited Company partnership of property investors and developers working in the North of England, predominantly throughout Yorkshire. We cover every activity from sourcing the deals, through the purchase and development phases, to selling or refinancing for letting and follow on management.
We don’t just advise though, we walk the walk. We are investors ourselves, having ‘flipped’ for profit as well as holding properties for cashflow income.
Please have a look around our website to gain a little bit of information about who we are and what we do. If you are interested working with us to get you a better return from your money, please get in touch via the Contact form.
