Two of the UKs leading experts in the fields of both property and investment will be in Hertfordshire on March 17thto highlight the current opportunities for buy- to- let investors.

Kate Faulkner and Andrew Chatterton will be the main guests at a seminar staged by local property specialist, Belvoir, at The Node, Codicote, starting at 6.45pm.

Kate is a much respected property market analyst and commentator who has appeared regularly on Radio and Television and is a regular contributor, on property matters, to some of Britains leading broadsheet newspapers and trade publications.

She has written six books on property, including four for Which, and with her vast knowledge of the industry has also sat on the judging panel for the Landlord and Buy to Let, Estate Agency and First Time Buyer national awards.

Andrew Chatterton has been running his own business, Franklyn Financial Management, for the past 15 years and is a graduate in Business Strategy and Economics.

In 1998 he was appointed a Senior Partner of the St Jamess Place Partnership, representing St Jamess Place Wealth Management plc. Andrew has a particular specialism in Inheritance Tax, Trusts and Investment Planning.

Jonathan and Luke Mason are owners of the Belvoir property lettings and management business at 32 Bancroft, in Hitchin who decided to stage the seminar to help local and prospective landlords and property investors gain an in-depth, up-to-date insight into the current, buoyant lettings market.

'All of our research indicates that there is no better time for people to consider property as their preferred investment choice,' said Luke. 'With Pensions and other asset classes performing miserably, the current residential property market offers a viable alternative for successful financial returns, with near perfect market conditions for long-term investment landlords.

'Recent research from the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) indicates that national demand for rental properties has rocketed to an eight year high. More than 70 per cent of lettings agents across the country have noticed a surge in demand, which is more than double that experienced in 2007 at the peak of the property boom.'

At the Belvoir seminar on Thursday March 17th, Kate Faulkner will share her knowledge and give advice on what type of properties to invest in, where to buy locally, ways to make a profit and mistakes to avoid.

Andrew Chatterton will provide an introduction to wealth management, discuss the back drop to key economic issues that face us today, discuss tax tips for property investors and also present a series of successful case studies.
