Guide to Buy-to-let

Introduction

Landlords have experienced a huge number of changes over the past few years, as chancellors have clamped down on the sector and subjected landlords to extra tax charges.

As a consequence, business in the Buy-to-Let sector has slowed substantially and fewer landlords are taking out mortgages to buy properties.

Brexit has had its role to play, and stymied demand, although now it has been seen to get the go-ahead, enquiries have risen substantially. 

Investing in property direct is one way for a client to build their investment portfolio, but being a landlord comes with costs, in terms of managing the properties and ensuring there are tenants to fill them.

Nonetheless, it remains a profitable form of investment.
