Information on changes within the current economic environment that affect the lettings market Understanding how you can identify and manage risk whilst maximising the return on your investment What you will get out of this presentation
The Changing Environment Buy-to-Let market; increasing demand on limited funding First time buyer mortgage applications; deposit constraints Demand for rental properties increased; especially in London and the South East Cuts from government to overall spending including welfare and benefits; affects entire PRS Sustained unemployment figures and potential for double dip
What this means for landlords: Threats Availability of finance and buy-to-let products Increased cost of borrowing; product types, interest rates and fees Value of assets (re-financing); lack of flexibility and detailed mortgage application assessment Length of term / tenure of investment; short term wins or long term gains Changing tenant profile; increased arrears and voids risks?
Threats cont’d... Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates capped Single room rate; extension to the under 35s for room rate e.g.: claimant aged 33 living in central London currently entitled to £250 per week this will reduce to £ This will mean shared accommodation, will HMO’s (Homes of Multiple Occupation) work for you? New entrants to the market; vendors, funds and institutional investors £250 per weekOne bedroom property £290 per weekTwo bedroom property £340 per weekThree bedroom property £400 per weekFour bedroom property
What this means for landlords: Opportunities Significant growth in the residential lettings market Increased viability of leasing schemes; 50 th vs. 30 th percentile Potential change in legislation; ability for councils to discharge statutory duty in to the private rented sector Increased demand on the private rented sector by the public sector Increasing sources of private funds for developments; we have seen stamp duty and Real Estate Investment Trust changes (reduction in costs) Changes in the market place; from owner / occupier to long term renting More stock available for lettings?
