Buy-to-let refers to the purchase of a property specifically to let out and gain revenue from. It can provide a stable income as well as an accumulation of wealth if house prices go up over time.
The introduction of the 1988 Housing Act, along with rapidly rising house prices, made investment in residential property more attractive to landlords. Since then, there has been a boom in buy-to-let property investment which has seen a lot of investors earn a substantial income in a short space of time.
The introduction of the Assured Shorthold Tenancy also led to a rise in the availability of buy-to-let mortgages, specifically designed for amateur and professional landlords, making it easier to secure the finance needed to make a business work.
With first-time buyers struggling to get a mortgage, there is great demand for buy-to-let property in London. Short-term work contracts and many thousands of international students and professionals mean that the market is definitely there, so long as you choose the right property.
Seasoned buy-to-let investors will thoroughly research all aspects, including the right location to purchase and rent a property, who the target tenants are and what they seek and expect from rented accommodation.
