Phil Martin is a widely consulted Authority on UK property Investment, Buy To Let in general and also it's numerous derivative schemes.
Phil is a dedicated father to 5 daughters aged 7 - 19 years old and a serial "big thinking" entrepreneur.
When Phil's first child "Hope" was born in 1996 he decided to focus on being an effective full time parent and believed that businesses should be built efficiently enough to fit in with family, rather than vice-versa.
This ethos has created some challenging limitations in his life, but has also prevented the very unnecessary imbalance that creates resentment in the lives of so many other successful people.
Phil understood the need for leverage early on in his career:
He realized that you need to leverage both time and money to enjoy freedom, or at least a reasonable lifestyle, doing what you want to do, with those you want to be with.
For this type of leverage to happen, you need 2 things:
1) Business ownership (or control)- Your own work needs to be supported by a team of people and efficient systems which can expand your time beyond 24 hours a day.
2) Asset Ownership (or control)- The money you have earned should grow exponentially and in a secure asset class, whilst being shielded from the downward erosion caused by inflationary pressures.
Phil built his property portfolio using his personal knowledge of repossession stopping and housing law.
Through his Mortgage Rescue Network brand, in addition to buying properties and supporting investors, Phil Martin was responsible for stopping an average of 1 repossession every working day for 3 years between 2007-2010.
His lobbying, publicity and detailed understanding of the housing sector contributed to a change in the law namely Mortgage Repossessions (Protection of Tenants etc) Act 2010 which protects tenants in properties subject to mortgages from short notice eviction by the mortgage lender.
Phil also authored a guide called "Sustainable Solutions to Stopping Repossession" and this good work continues now at the Stop Repossession page
