What you need to know about Buy-to-Let (BTL) Property
What is a good rental yield?
A good rental yield on a buy-to-let property should ensure that there is a positive cash-flow in the property to cover running costs and mortgage payments while also delivering extra income for you as an investor. Anything over the UK average of 3.53% can be considered over-performing.
Taxes you need to consider on Buy-to-Let Properties
Tax is a vital aspect of any investment in the UK property market. Whether you’re a domestic buyer or investing from overseas, understanding the tax implications can mitigate issues further down the line. Read more about UK property taxes.
What’s the best BTL strategy?
There are two stratgies to pick from. The first is generating rental Income (calculated by what your tenants pay in rent, minus any maintenance or running costs) and the second capital growth (the profit you earn if you sell your property for more than you paid for it).
Is now a good time for the UK Buy-to-Let market?
UK Buy-to-Let (BTL) is worth over £1 trillion and represents the opportunity to invest in a sector with unprecedented potential. Research estimates that UK renters will outnumber homeowners by 2039. This represents 125 million households and it’s this imbalance that is having an impact on the market, highlighting the lack of stock to meet an increasingly growing demand. Savills also estimate rental prices in the UK will increase by 13.6% over the next 5 years.
The UK population is also still expanding. Forecasted to grow by 74 million people in the next 20 years, the potential demand for housing is vast.
It’s now more important than ever before that investors buy quality. The modern tenant demands more from their living environment and the worldwide lockdown has pulled this into sharp focus. Investment in a property should always be looked at as a mid-to-long-term investment, and having a quality product in an area with strong, sustainable tenant demand is vital.
