Aura Liverpool Student Accommodation

Since launching Aura Liverpool Student Accommodation just 2 months ago, 60% of units in phase one have already been sold to UK and overseas investors.

Here we have a look at why Aura Liverpool Student Accommodation has been so popular.

No. 1 Asset Class

Since the introduction of a 3% Stamp Duty levy on buy-to-let property and second homes, alternative options on the market which carry a lower tax bill have become more popular.

Investors entering purpose-built student property – which is widely considered as the UK’s best performing asset class – will pay a 0% Stamp Duty rate on individual en-suite and studio rooms. For many landlords, student property has been a welcomed addition to their property portfolio, as this type of asset generally produces higher returns.

And, with investment starting from around £62,950, student property offers a lower entry level step onto the property ladder.

Structured payments across the duration of the build have appeal to investors based overseas, as the clear payment dates are known in advance so money can be moved. This is particularly favourable in countries such as China, where there are restrictions on the amount of money that can be moved overseas.
