About Platinum Property Partners
Combine the certainty of franchising with the security of property and earn £50,000 to £150,000 per year...
Platinum Property Partners is a franchise which was formed in 2007; since then, the franchise has helped more than 390 Franchise Partners achieve financial freedom through property investment.
The Platinum franchise offers you a direct route to financial freedom through property investment.
We have combined the security of property with the certainty of franchising; our 390+ Franchise Partners generate, on average, between £50,000 and £150,000 in annual income from their property businesses - giving them that financial freedom but also giving them back their time, too.
How does the Platinum franchise work?
Using a tried and tested property investment business model honed over more than a decade, Platinum Franchise Partners invest in highly profitable Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs), supported, mentored, and coached by the franchisor’s team of property and business experts.
“What struck me about Platinum is the people. It’s a people business. When you’re surrounded by like-minded people who are in the same organisation there’s immediate trust and support. Everyone wants everyone else to succeed, which is so refreshing.”
Ben Gould – PPP Franchise Partner since Jan-2017… read more
“The great thing about Platinum is that they help you with so much more than your property portfolio. They help you with life planning.
While the plan now is to have a passive income for retirement, who knows whether that will change. We are young and have young children, but we are excited about the choices we will have in the future.”

What are HMOs?
Platinum’s Franchise Partners create high-quality HMOs, which are shared living properties for professionals and key workers.
Guided and supported by their mentors and Platinum’s team of experts, Franchise Partners are able to buy the right properties in the right areas, before cost-effectively renovating them and turning them into multiple-bedroom homes which are let out on a room-by-room basis.
What kind of returns could I generate?
On average, Platinum Franchise Partners earn between £50,000 and £150,000 per year from their property businesses.
On top of that, Platinum Franchise Partners:
- Enjoy average returns on equity of between 10% and 15%
- On average, earn £20,000 per property, per year – 40% more than standard single tenancy buy-to-let properties
- Benefit from long-term capital growth in their properties, as they own all their assets 100%
The benefits of a Platinum Property Partners franchise...
Investing in HMOs is complex due to the legal and licensing requirements; mistakes like buying the wrong house in the wrong area; over-spending on renovations; or not being able to obtain planning permission are common and can be incredibly costly.
With a Platinum Property Partners franchise, you’ll be supported throughout by a team of more than 50 industry experts, so you:
- Buy and renovate your properties cost-effectively, meaning a greater return on your investment
- Buy the right properties in the right area and avoid costly planning mistakes
- Find good housemates and keep them happy, so your rental income keeps coming in
- Have access to and support from Platinum’s ‘Power Team’ of specialist mortgage brokers, accountants, solicitors and letting agents
Do I need property experience?
You don’t need to have invested in property before to join the Platinum franchise. The most important traits in a Platinum Franchise Partner are a determination to succeed and a desire to change your life. Platinum Franchise Partners come from all walks of life.
Some have owned other businesses, many have trodden the corporate path and now want more of their time back and others have come into money and simply want a solid investment for their futures that also generates an immediate income to replace or boost their existing salary.

Six-figure income from property
Robin's never been a stranger to hard work, but by the end of 2019, he'll be earning a sixfigure income from property for 5 days
work per month.
After 20 years in the import/export industry, having co-founded a pet accessory company in 2005 which he sold in 2012, he’d experienced the blood, sweat and tears needed to build a successful business.
Robin continued to work in the business for the Private Equity owners, which was now turning over more than 100 million Euros, but the early mornings, late nights and lots of time in airports led to him wanting a real change. So, he took the opportunity to explore businesses that he and his wife, Maxine, could do together.
Proven systems and a formulaic path
“I’d already trodden the entrepreneurial path, and decided I wanted a more formulaic path,” said Robin. “I’m never going to be the type to sit back and retire early, but we wanted a low-risk business with proven systems in place and that’s why we looked at franchising.”
In late 2016, Robin and Maxine came across Platinum Property Partners (PPP) at a franchise show. Their initial idea had been to look at fast food franchises as they needed to replace the income lost from Robin’s salary fairly quickly. However, when they heard Founder of PPP, Steve Bolton, give his presentation, they were excited to learn that they could build their own property portfolio via a franchise system.
Robin added: “It seemed that burger franchises wanted your heart and soul, and whilst you could earn a decent income, you’d still be trading your time for money, with no assets to speak of or any long-term solution. In contrast, PPP offered all of what we were looking for and more.”
The couple had always been interested in property investment but had never been brave enough. They were fully aware of how easy it could be to lose hundreds of thousands of pounds as a result of just one mistake and were comforted by the fact that joining PPP would give them the expert guidance they needed.
“Without a shadow of a doubt, joining PPP was the best decision we could have made when picking the right franchise for us. They have been crucial, not only to our success, but to going into property at all.”
Whilst many Franchise Partners join PPP for almost instant time freedom, Robin and Maxine took a full speed ahead approach. By April 2017, just two months after joining, they’d started the refurbishment of their first property. Two months into the refurbishment, they received the keys for their second project. By month three, when the work was finished, they had their first fully tenanted HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) in Watford and the builders moved on to start the second project.
For the next two years, they followed the pattern of simultaneously managing tenants whilst managing a new property refurbishment and starting their search for the next purchase, at least five months before the current project was estimated to finish. During this time, they would start actively advertising the unfinished property so it would be ready for tenants to move in the day the builders moved out. “We never joined the franchise with the view to take it slow as we knew we needed to build our business and earn an income quickly, so we have been aggressive and non-stop since day one,” said Robin.
Most properties have involved large scale refurbishments, including single storey extensions using Neighbourhood Consultation, loft and garage conversions, planning for Change of Use and Build Over applications as well as multiple Party Wall agreements. Thankfully, the extensive training and mentoring received by PPP’s Power Team and continued support of HMO planning specialists, were invaluable – not to mention the expert advice on managing tenancies post-completion provided by PPP’s letting manager
“We'll have six HMOs with a total of 39 rooms up and running by the end of 2019, less than three years after our journey started.”
