Great BTL deals come in all shapes and sizes and this property certainly proves that. It would be fair to say that it isnt a ‘typical’ buy to let however it would make a fabulous home for tenants needing plenty of space!
Earlier this month Housing Secretary Sajid Javid confirmed government backing to create a new generation of town houses in cities like London and Manchester to ease pressure on valuable open spaces and help growing families.
Under the changes it will be easier to build upwards on existing blocks of flats and houses as well as shops and offices.
It looks as though 2018 will be a mixed year for landlords. Some will start to feel the pinch of the legislation that’s recently come into force, such as the loss of mortgage interest relief, while a number of tenants may give notice, due to incentives to buy. At the same time, there are likely to be some good deals around for landlords looking to expand their portfolios. For the rest, who may not have the means to buy in the next 12 months, it’s a good opportunity to take stock of their portfolio and make small improvements where needed to help translate rental income into better profits.
There are currently nearly 150 ‘Statutory Provisions’ that apply to lettings and the benefit of much of the legislation – particularly the laws that have come into force since 2006 – is that properties have become safer for tenants. Landlords now have a high degree of responsibility for the health and safety of their tenants, from removing potential hazards and installing fire safety measures to ensuring the fabric of the property itself is maintained to a good standard.
