Lifestyle Stories – Shiv Haria

Today, we’d like to introduce you to our Managing Director, Shiv Haria, as he explains how a family illness forced him to invest in property as a way to create an additional income stream. Since then, together with the Lifestyle team, Shiv has helped hundreds of clients achieve financial security and independence through sustainable property investments in the Northern Property market.

“A family trauma shocked me into creating an additional income stream for my family and myself.”

I grew up in quite a traditional, hard-working household. Both my parents worked in a family business along with my uncles and outside their state pension, neither really had the time or the foresight to start investing for their future. Then in 2013, both my parents suffered heart attacks, which took them out of work for a considerable amount of time. That’s when the value of an additional income stream really hit home as I started to consider the lifestyle they would be able to afford if (and when) they retired and their monthly income ceased.

Following a serendipitous conversation with my then girlfriend (now wife), we both became obsessed with the idea of creating passive income streams through low risk property investments. After reading every book in existence on the subject and spending thousands of pounds learning as much as we could from people that were already doing it, in 2014, we began investing in the Leeds property market. Our initial aim was to buy and rent inexpensive properties so we could help support our families and develop financial security and independence for ourselves.

It took some time until we felt confident enough to purchase our first property, and following the success of our proof of concept, we continued to purchase as many properties as we could and despite several challenges, have never really looked back!

It was here that we got the inspiration to start Lifestyle Property People. We have created a portfolio that gives us financial security, pays all of our monthly expenses, builds wealth for us passively, and leaves us free to do the things that give our lives meaning. We saw first-hand how life changing having a buy to let property portfolio could be and we wanted to ensure that others could have a similar experience.

However, the biggest challenge for most people is that they don’t have the time or the expertise to take the first step to investing, so offering an end to end solution which reduces the amount of their time required, while also providing the expertise to find, purchase, refurbish and rent the properties for clients was a no brainer. And that’s how Lifestyle Property People was born.

To date, we have helped over 100 clients invest in the lucrative and exciting Leeds property market, creating income stream for them and helping them achieve their long-term goals.

Even after all this time, we still get a buzz from seeing the rent come into our bank account every month, and knowing that we will get paid regardless of whether we work this month or not gives us a sense of financial security that helps us remain calm, even when faced with life’s challenges.
