Refurbs / Renovations 10 Yrs Experience in Flipping but looking for a Mentor

Hi, This is my first post but hoping for some guidance if im in the wrong place.


My name is Harrison Jones, I'm a 28, from Croydon and have been flipping properties full time since 2006.


Without going into too much detail, after being 10 years of many downs and a few ups. Flipping roughly 25 properties, I'm looking to take it to the next level.


I buy all my properties through agents, generally look for probates or anything in a bad state. Have a full time (sub-contracted) site foreman and a team of subbies that carry out most of the other works (electrics, boilers, plastering, windows).


I fund this all now fully through investors that act as mortgage lenders. I set up the deal, loan the full amount of the purchase, then once sold, pay back the loan plus interest.


I'm looking for someone to speak to and identify any areas I can up my game. Preferably someone who is in the same field, not a BTL buyer.


I would appreciate any help.

    • Legal Advice...
      By AlexCook
      Hello everyone, 
      I couldn't see anywhere where traders/developers/landlords could ask legal questions and I'm really happy to (try to) field them. Admin if this isn't the right/best approach then of course no worries. 
      So this is an open invitation for members to pitch any legal queries to me informally and without charge. If I can help I will. If I can't I will try to give you a steer. 
      I am an expert litigation solicitor and own my own disputes niche firm with my business Partner- Helix Law ( I was previously a Partner and head of litigation in a large regional firm and realised there was a better way. We focus on building longer term relationships and sharing risk rather than short term fees. We're unashamedly a business but our philosophy and approach is incredibly important to us- encapsulated in our tag line 'Working Together'. We really try to add value as an outsourced legal team for business and business people and treat each problem as if it were our own. Although we have grown we will never forget those we serve. 
      Helix is a litigation/disputes niche firm focussed on commercial, property, employment and construction (and development) litigation. We don't dabble and we don't deal with Wills, Conveyancing, divorce etc. We do what we do and we're good at it- regularly litigating against City firms. We are Brighton based but as an experienced team work nationally. So if you have a JCT dispute, an adjudication, or need a development contract drafting we can help you. If you need a tenant removing/evicting for low fixed fees or have an unpaid invoice, we can help. If you fancy doing it yourself then I will help you as best as I can, including without charging- because we value the relationship and know that in time you will too. We don't just deal with problems. We help avoid them too. We're happy to back our own advice and offer no win, no fee agreements and of course fixed fees. 
      I trained academically as an unregistered and non practicising Barrister but then completed the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test to become a solicitor. Why? I love client contact and helping business owners as their 'go to' lawyer. I have owned and sold a non legal SME business and am glad to say I am therefore not just 'a lawyer'. I am also a landlord myself.
      Enough about me and about Helix. If I can help please do get in touch on here, via email, Linkedin (, Facebook or telephone 01273 761990.
