“Pension freedom day” is almost upon us – the day when millions of people will be able to get access to their pension as cash for the first time. Will these people all run to the nearest estate agent to invest in property? Should they?
In this episode we discuss:
- The full extent of the pension crisis that means changes are needed
- The changes that are coming in on 6th April
- The downside of the changes
- Why some people will be looking at property investment
- Which type of property investments are most suitable in this situation
- What effect the changes will have on the property market
It’s an important one whether you’re of pension age or not, so take a listen!
