Is now a good time to invest in buy-to-let?

I keep reading in the press that the number of tenants looking for properties to rent is increasing. Is now a good time to invest in buy-to-let?

Only you can decide if now is a good time for you to invest in buy to let. The decision will not simply hang on tenant demand (although it is very healthy at the moment). Becoming a landlord is a major commitment and an enormous responsibility.

Make sure you research the market thoroughly first. It’s very important to take professional advice particularly on tax, accounting and finance. You should also talk to landlords, letting agents and tenants.

The internet is a good place to start your research - our website is full of useful information.

Feel free to get in touch, I’d be happy to point you in the right direction.
