The 10th edition of our Buy to Let Index suggests that over half of landlords believe Brexit will make no difference to their property investments over the next three years.

Our research also indicates that Buy to Let property is still viewed as a positive long term investment. Considering the recent stamp duty and tax changes, as well as the Brexit result and stricter affordability checks, it seems that the Buy to Let market remains resilient.

Landlords expect their portfolio size to increase or stay the same over the next three years with just 8% expecting it to decrease. However, they seem cautious of how tax changes will affect their investment. To compensate for this, most landlords may consider exploring other financial arrangements such as creating limited companies or transferring property ownership.

Overall, the Index has risen which implies the public remain optimistic about the health of the UK Buy to Let market. The greatest changes are in the Mortgage Affordability and New Property Indexes. This suggests that homeowners and landlords are feeling positive about current affordability of mortgage rates and their likelihood of buying new property in the next 12 months. All in all it seems that the market is remaining strong.

Our specialist research into the Buy to Let market has been running since June 2014. It continues to track changes in attitudes towards Buy to Let based on regular surveys of UK landlords and homeowners. Edition 10 was conducted in September 2016.
