John Charcol inks advice deal with Upad


John Charcol has signed an advice deal with online letting agent Upad.

The partnership will see Upad signpost its landlord community to John Charcol brokers for help.

This help will include providing webinars and guides, a dedicated advice line and online access to buy-to-let experts.

John Charcol chief commercial officer Alan Young says: “The recent changes to stamp duty, taxation and lending criteria have placed increased pressure on landlords.

“By working together we can help landlords confront the challenges of the market and ensure they receive the maximum benefit from their investment.”

Upad founder James Davis says: “We have always strived to be more than just an innovative tech solution for landlords, instead seeing Upad as a lighthouse for landlords trying to navigate their way through the world of buy-to-let. John Charcol will help us take this to the next level.”
