Landlords eye up portfolio expansion

A recent survey* has found that, despite the pressures on the property market, nearly a third of buy-to-let landlords plan to expand their portfolio next year.

44% of those with hopes to buy are portfolio landlords who already own at least 11 properties. When asked about their motivation, just over a third said they were driven by the fall in UK house prices, while 38% of landlords put it down to the increase in tenant demand. 

 

However, not everyone is feeling so optimistic; 43% of respondents did not envisage purchasing any property in 2024 – some cannot afford it, while others are put off by the high interest rates.
