ROMANS is opening its doors to offer advice to anyone interested in using their pension to invest in property.
The drop-in style Investing Your Pension In Property event takes place from 3pm to 6.30pm on Wednesday at the Hart Street branch.
Julian Sheppard, Henley sales manager, said: “We are always on hand to offer the local community advice on anything property related and we always welcome residents to drop in for a chat. The subject of pensions in property is a hot topic at the moment and the new pension rules will definitely increase the number of first time investors across the UK.
“Gaining sound advice regarding where and what types of property are best to invest in is essential, and the popularity of our first event demonstrates how many people in this area are looking into property investment.”
Charlotte Mellor, lettings manager at the Henley branch, said: “It’s also a worthwhile event for existing landlords to attend as from the age of 55 you can draw out your pension and invest that back into more buy-to-let properties.
“As returns on savings remain low, buy-to-let offers an investment opportunity with tangible capital growth. The ONS House Price Index indicates house prices grew by nearly 10 per cent annually in December, giving investors an increasingly valuable asset as well as the opportunity for monthly rental income.”
