Hi all, This is my first post and I am optimistic that I can get some useful insight on ideas for my next investment step. I am currently living in my PPR with my partner and we are looking to purchase a new PPR in around 3-5 years based on kids and we will keep the current property for investment. We currently have a monthly surplus of around 2k, just under 50k in savings and borrowing capacity of around 400k. My question is, is it realistic to try and purchase an investment property now and have a deposit ready to go in 3 years confidently? My partner is a bit more hesitant on investing so I would like to be confident and possibly a bit conservative with my numbers so she is also happy with the decision. Also as a follow up, my current PPR is just in my name and my partner "rents" off me (nothing official as we plan to have this in joint names in future. Am i better off viewing this as her paying off the loan or should I claim part of my PPR as an investment property? Looking forward to hearing your responses!!
