How does Portfolio8 work?

  1. We source the right property for you, using our expertise within the Manchester property market.
  2. We provide you with a genuine Return on Investment summary for the individual property, including purchase costs, estimated rental incomes and lettings and property management fees.
  3. We assist you throughout the legal and purchase process, working with you and the solicitors to ensure a swift and efficient purchase of the property.
  4. Some of the properties are purchased below market value, and therefore require refurbishment work before renting out. This can prove an effective strategy for clients looking to generate higher capital appreciation as well as a good rental yield. Through our network of builders, carpet fitters and kitchen installers, we will project manage the refurbishment work on your behalf, ensuring the work is completed to a high standard throughout.
  5. We will source the right tenant for you, performing all appropriate tenancy and legal checks are completed prior to renting out the property.
  6. Our highly experienced property lettings team manage the property on your behalf, giving you the peace of mind that you require from your property investment.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • I am not a UK resident, can I still use your service?

    Absolutely, we specialise in working with investors from outside of the UK, and empowering them to purchase what we feel are the best investment properties throughout the Manchester region. Our service ensures you have full access to our expertise within the Greater Manchester property market.

    Our global network of investors means we are regularly working with investors from Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and many other destinations around the world.

  • What areas do you cover?

    Our full service offering extends throughout the Greater Manchester region. There are plans to extend the service beyond this area in the near future, and we will update all clients via the WhatsApp and email mailing lists, as well as the news section on the website.

  • Can I use a mortgage to purchase these properties?

    Whilst every application is subject to status, it is possible to obtain a mortgage on the vast majority of properties we bring to market through Portfolio8. We regularly work with a select number of mortgage brokers to assist our investors throughout the process.

  • I live outside of the UK and am not a UK resident, can I still get a mortgage on these properties?

    A large number of our investors are non-UK residents, and as such we work with a Manchester based mortgage broker who specialises in mortgage finance for investors based overseas.

  • What happens if the property needs renovation?

    We regularly bring to market properties which require renovation work. This can vary from simple cosmetic refurbishment, through to more extensive remedial or even structural work. For investors, these types of properties often provide an opportunity to create increased levels of equity, or indeed higher rental values once the property is completed.

    We work with a network of contractors throughout the Greater Manchester region to complete the work on your property, allowing our investors to maximise value from an early stage.

    As a large number of our investors are located outside of Manchester, many outside of the UK, the team at Portfolio8 will project manage the work on your behalf, ensuring the property is ready to rent out at the end of the renovation work.

  • How does your lettings and property manage service work?

    We offer a full lettings and property management service for all properties throughout the Greater Manchester region, which is provided by our sister company, Indlu Estate Agents.

    Once your property has been purchased, and is ready to rent out, we will start to market the property across all the major UK property portals (Rightmove and Zoopla), as well as the Indlu Estate Agents website. We will carry out all the tenant viewings on your behalf, and perform all the necessary tenancy checks to prior to the new tenant moving in to the property.

  • How much do you charge for your sourcing service?

    We charge a standard sourcing fee of £2,500.00 plus VAT per property.

  • Can I sell my property through Portfolio8?

    Yes, through our sister companies Indlu Estate Agents and Pure Investor, we’re able to market your property to both the residential end-user and investor markets.
