I’ve just spent a night away on a golfing break with three other property related professionals. Happily ‘shop talk’ is not our primary focus as it’s an escape from business, property prices, the property market, the frustrating buy to let mortgage market  and buy to let in general, but I can never escape it…even when I try.

Eighty miles from home and in Merseyside we are about to tee off when an existing vendor of a block of apartments in Liverpool comes over and says hello. His presence was a welcome surprise and lead to his introduction to a friend who has two blocks of apartments in Manchester and Southport he would be interested in selling to our buy to let investors. So much for escaping work but a timely casual meeting and genuine business scope for buy to let opportunities.

The golf wasn’t too bad either!
