The state of the UK's buy-to-let market

Introduction

The buy-to-let market is facing some of the biggest changes to tax it has seen for a while but despite this there is little indication the market is in decline, as some had predicted.

This report will set out what the changes to taxation and policy are, what impact these will have against the backdrop of Brexit and how the buy-to-let industry is adapting to these.

The report will also cover how advisers can ensure they have all the information at their fingertips to be able to recommend buy-to-let investing to their clients and how they can help their clients make the best decisions if they want to establish a buy-to-let portfolio.

Contributors to the report include: John Heron, managing director for Paragon Mortgages; Paul Shearman, proposition director for mortgages, protection and GI at Openwork; Matthew Bird, independent financial planner for Seer Green Financial Planning; John Phillips, group operations director at Spicer Haart and Just Mortgages; Robert Sinclair, chief executive of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries; David Hollingworth, associate director and communications at L&C Mortgages; Keith Street, vice chairman, group lending at The Northview Group; Donna Hopton, director at Cherry; Jane Benjamin, head of relationship management at Sesame Bankhall Group; Jamie Smith-Thompson, managing director of Portafina; Charlotte Nelson, finance expert at Moneyfacts; HM Revenue & Customs.
