( I do know the laws etc in UK but not here). Someone care to list me some books that you think would be useful for me as a beginner?

    I liked peter spann's book on property. But generally the forums are the best place to read.

    Ed,

    I have found it is wise to concentrate on the Australian authors & suggest new  IP investors start by reading the following books in this order:
    1. Jan Somers – building wealth through investment property (an excellent read & starting game plan for novices)
    2. John L Fitzgerarld – Seven steps to wealth (similar approach to Jan, easy to follow strategy with sound advice)
    3. Michael Yardney- How to grow a multi – million dollar property portfolio ( a fantastic read, enormous amount of advice across the full specrum, some of his tips are directed at the more advanced  property investor)

    HI

    I have also found margaret Lomas' books to be very helpful and include calculations for determining land tax and other assoicated purchasing expenses.

    good luck

    Sonya

    If you’re still undecided – I’d also highly recommend Yardney’s “How to grow a multi-million dollar property portfolio” – I found it a great read.
