Landlords shift from short-lets as Coronavirus takes hold

In a sudden shift from recent developments, there is evidence that landlords are shunning often more profitable short lets, in favour of longer-term tenancies. As the Coronavirus spread gathers pace and the Government announces wide-ranging measures of support across multiple industries, it appears the UK's residential lettings sector is also rallying around those in need, to do their part to ensure there are enough long-term rental homes available for those who need them.

Where are the next BTL investor hotspots?

As a property investor and Buy-to-Let (BTL) landlord, its often difficult to know where the next potential hotspot for your next investment is. Luckily, there's some new research identifying areas where investors are likely to make their next purchase and it looks as though the midlands and north of England are looking pretty popular. Meanwhile, investments are still likely in London and the south, but at a slower rate than the more affordable northern regions.

UK's tax system encourages short-term lets over long-term

The current tax system is beginning to prove more supportive of investors of short-term lets rather than long-term lets, according to property body the Residential Landlords Association (RLA). Recent analysis by The Guardian also highlights that in some areas of England, some 25% of property listings are for short-term lets, suggesting even fewer homes could soon be available for long-term tenants.

Why two-bedroomed properties provide investors with the optimum rental yield

Recent research suggests that if you're a Buy-to-Let (BTL) property investor, then a good place to start your investment journey, is with two-bedroomed properties. Why? Because they provide the optimum rental yield versus investment. Of course, that's not true of every area across the UK, but on average, two-bedroomed properties can deliver the best rental yield for many landlords.
