We could have chosen a better day for our first breakfast event, being the morning after the US election and one which saw a cold, wet and windy day in the UK - but those who attended enjoyed a good breakfast and discussed a wide range of topics from late paying students and whether to sell or keep a particular flat with a lifetime tenancy to the life expectancy of a landlord and how that should be factored into ones overall business plan.
On the latter topic, our own Allan Wadsworth assured us that he planned to live to be 102 and was managing his business plans accordingly - it is fortunate in that case, that capital gains are not due on properties at death of owner, else he would need to rethink his plan!
On a more serious note, it was good to mull over the problem of the day, whatever that may have been for each of us - from investment decisions and plans, to how we each manage late payments. And to do so over a range of delicious breakfasts from the popular bacon butty and 'full english' through to eggs benedict and simple fruit was an added benefit.
Our next event is Wednesday, 11th January 2017 - we urge you to pop it in your diary now and plan to get along. We start at 8.30, the cafe opens early just for us, and we plan to promote the next event more widely - so if we can get as many of our members along as are able to attend, that would really help.
Hope to see you there (elections and weather permitting!)
