Episode Three of Shipleys FM shares plenty of property-related insights and tips. We also have a great interview with John Lanning, a Director of Headley Group Ltd – a group of local insurance companies.

Property special

In the episode I focus on various accounting and tax issues for property ownership and answer specific questions around owning a second property.

In addition, there’s a great interview with John Lanning, a Director of the Headley Group Ltd. John also heads up one of the group’s companies – Robinson Buckley. In our discussion he explains the growth journey and evolution of the Group. He also talks about the importance of local networking and being part of a vibrant local business community. 

John is a specialist in commercial property insurance and explains how his work covers businesses of all shapes and sizes – from sole traders through to major multi-site operations.  In doing so he shares anecdotes of commercial property issues he’s resolved for clients over the years
