Any concerns that landlords are giving up on buy to let have been put to bed, thanks to latest figures from HMRC.
According to the new data the number of buy to let investors in the UK hit 2.5 million in the last tax year, up 5% on the previous year and 27% on 2012/13.
What’s more, the number of properties each landlord owns has increased too, with landlords now owning, on average, 1.8 buy to let properties each.
Bricks and mortar will always be a sound investment, despite the challenges the sector has faced of late, and these figures are testament to that. Buy to let remains a safe option and it’s clear that landlord appetite remains.
