About Platinum Property Partners
Earn £50,000 to £150,000 per year from property investment
Platinum Property Partners is a franchise that offers a direct route to financial freedom through property investment.
Combining the security of property and the certainty of franchising, Platinum’s 380+ 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 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 £17,000 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%
But why do I need a franchise to invest in property?
Put simply, you don’t.
But investing in HMOs is complex because of legal and licensing requirements, while 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 franchise, you’ll be mentored and supported 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.

Training and support provided
Franchisees are required to attend multiple mandatory training days, which not only offer Platinum’s expertise, but provide the opportunity to learn and practice the skill of building, marketing and maintaining their ideal portfolio in a tax-efficient business structure. A team of over 50 industry professionals are involved in the highly effective, intensive and on-going training programme; including specialist mortgage brokers, accountants, solicitors and lettings agents, as well as renovation and negotiation experts.
One-to-one mentors are also provided, to assist them with all areas of managing their portfolio. They are partnered with a location and buying mentor who accompanies them throughout the process of deciding the location of their portfolio and purchasing their first property. Throughout this process, the mentor will help them make important decisions, setting up a strong foundation and understanding for them to continue purchasing the most suitable and cost-efficient portfolio of properties. They are also allocated a refurbishment mentor who helps them optimise the space in their property and prioritise the most integral aspects of their HMO refurbishment within their budget for a stronger ROI.
The ideal Platinum Property Partners franchisee
Whilst Platinum Property Partners is an attractive franchise opportunity, it isn’t suitable for everyone. To become a Platinum Property Partners franchisee, in excess of £300,000 to £700,000 of investment capital is required. This figure varies depending on the location and size of portfolio you intend to build. The investment can come from cash, equity in your home and even pension funding and family assets in some cases.
Platinum’s 370 Partners come from a huge range of backgrounds. They’ve got former directors, accountants and solicitors in our community of property investors. They’ve also welcomed former public sector workers from the NHS and education, as well as mothers reigniting their careers now their children have flown the nest. The nature of your background and skills are much less important that your determination to build your own business, create a substantial lifelong income and a better quality of life.

Platinum Property Partners' history
The franchise was born from Steve Bolton’s vision in 2007. He strived to improve people’s lives by bringing them financial security.
After franchising the business model with his partner Richard Davies, Platinum Property Partners became the fastest growing premium franchise in the UK.
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.”
