About Us

Hi, I’m Janice, founding director of Minihan Group alongside my husband, David.

We’re Australians who moved from Brisbane to Burnley in 2014. We’ve been active property investors since 2007 and still own property back in Australia as well as here in Lancashire.

After our young family, property is our number one passion. We also love meeting new people and learning new things whilst passing on our own knowledge and experience to our clients. That’s what’s helped us build four businesses in our first five years.

At Minihan Group we stand for one very important thing – creating the win-win. We simply won’t get involved in any deal that isn’t a win-win for all parties involved. That’s how you create long lasting, successful relationships with good people who do good things. If we do the right thing by our investors and all who we deal with, we know we will be successful. And then by extension, if you’re on board with us, you will be too.

We’ve developed the ‘source – refurb – furnish – let’ framework to take care of everything for you if you want to invest in high yield areas in the north of England but lack the time or inclination to be involved in the day-to-day.

That said, it’s a pick and choose framework…

Perhaps you just want us to source the property? No problem.

Maybe you have a property here already but don’t know how to maximise its value? That’s fine, we can help.

We can help with all property types

As investors ourselves we hold a varied portfolio consisting of BTL’s, HMO’s, mixed use and commercial property in Lancashire. Not only does this help with our own diversification, it also gives us vast experience to help with any kind of property investment that you’re looking to pursue. We know what works here, for all property types.

Here’s some key points you’ll want to know about us and our deals:

  • We’re regulated deal sourcers for many UK and international investors
  • Our deals predominantly have an ROI of 20%-85%
  • We love the positive change we create for the area and our investors
  • We have unrelenting determination and work ethic
  • We love being positive role models for our children
  • Property is our legacy, and we want to help you make it yours too

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved with Minihan Group to this point. We have a growing team here internally and an ever expanding network of investors who are a pleasure to work with.

We’ve built up important relationships with large local businesses and student bodies which means we have tenants on tap, and importantly too, we know the trends.

We don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk by producing a high-quality product for our own tenants. We’re transparent, always, and we will always do the right thing by you.

This journey we’re on feels like it’s only just starting and we want to meet more like-minded investors who want our help and want to benefit by coming on the journey with us.

It’s going to be a good one. Get in touch.

Yours in property,


Janice Minihan

  • Buying a house is said to be one of the most stressful experiences most people will go through.  That was absolutely not our experience buying with Minihan Group. From our very first conversation, it was clear that we were dealing with sensible, practical, professional and above all, very friendly people.

    Having rented a number of properties, we were interested in buying our own house and had been looking for a while.  When our landlord decided to sell the house we were renting we expected to have to rent another before being able to buy as time was an issue.  Whilst looking for a new place to rent I had a telephone conversation with Janice about a house she had to let. I’m very glad we met when we did.

    Janice and David helped us buy our first home. At no point did we feel as though we had to squeeze our needs into a choice of ready made options, instead, we felt we had the freedom to create an entirely new arrangement, a contract tailored to our needs, which worked for everyone involved.  Because of this approach and the freedom that came with it, everything moved smoothly and quickly forward, from first conversations and meeting, to getting the keys to our beautiful new home in a matter of just a few short weeks.

    From Minihan Group, you can expect excellent communication, be that on the phone, in person or on paper, all documentation was clear, concise and complete.  You can also expect a great and friendly service. We’ve found that it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, it’s always better to be dealing with good people. That is exactly what you will find in Janice and David; good people.

    At the end of a remarkably short and pain free house buying experience, we are delighted to be able to wholeheartedly recommend our new friends Janice and David Minihan to anybody who needs to buy or sell their house.

  • I've used Janice services to view few properties for me. I have to say I'm very happy with the speed and professionalism. After viewing 10 properties, I had all of my papers ready in a day. Brilliant. Thank you Janice. Will definitely use your services again, it is so much easier and convenient for me. Thank you!

  • Having never been to Burnley, I had no idea what to expect or where to start when it comes to investing in the area. I could have spent weeks or even months learning for myself and potentially making costly mistakes investing 300 miles from my home. Just one day with Janice took that problem away. Her knowledge of the town and her experience of investing in property in Burnley is invaluable. From sourcing deals, project managing refurbs through to managing the property and tenants, I feel like I have found the right person! I am looking forward to working with Janice and her team and would highly recommend that anyone looking to invest in the town starts with a call to Janice.

  • The familiarisation day was very helpful and interesting and I enjoyed talking all things property.  We were driven around the different areas and Janice was knowledgeable about each area and the strategies that would work in them.  We even did 2 viewings so we got an idea of the type of properties available and saw Janice’s latest refurbishment, great. We saw Estate Agents and the town centre and were given an overview and some statistics on Burnley.  Lunch was lovely too. I did already know Burnley but only to shop in, now I feel I can move forward with my BTL hunt. Thanks for a great day Janice.

  • To Whom It May Concern:

    We would like to send you a few words of thanks and appreciation for the way our property sale to yourself was handled.  The experience was a very positive one, enabled particularly by your prompt communications and commitment to work through any issues and find a workable solution for both parties.  It was refreshing to deal with someone who proved to be honest and reliable throughout the process.

  • I have known David and Janice for over 10 years and found then to be extremely honest, trustworthy and people of their word. In business dealings I have had with them they were excellent to deal with and prompt as well as keeping me informed. 

    Best of luck, Bill S

  • Thank you for all the help you gave us since we started in Burnley, you were a real life saver when we met you and have had a massive impact on our portfolio. I hope we will get the opportunity to work together again in the near future.

    All the best of luck with your ventures, I am sure it will be a huge success.
