25 Jul Charlton Road
This was our first property in Bristol. I helped stop the vendor from being repossessed by paying off his arrears at the bank (£6k) and in the process secured a 5-year lease with the option to purchase. My wife and I left our London life and moved into one of the bedrooms which became home for the next 2 years. We rented the other 4 bedrooms out and I kept one for my office (used to be 6 bedrooms) Whilst far from ideal it allowed me to pursue property full time and set us up for what we have achieved to date which I’m thankful for. (and to my wife for following me to Bristol under the circumstances ! )
We renovated the property into a 5 bed all ensuite HMO a few years ago. I’m now looking to go into the attic and add another 2 rooms.
