Latest Private Rented Sector Report from ARLA

Posted on March 23, 2016 by Carol in Landlords

Interesting reading.  Follow the link below to read the latest report from ARLA on the Private Rented Sector.  It would appear to show that many agents feel that the new stamp duty reforms on buy-to-let property will lead to a drop in available stock for renters which may in turn lead to raised rental costs for tenants.  What are your thoughts on the stamp duty reforms?  It could be that landlords will find that they will get a better return on their investment, depending on where their properties are situated, if they are able to raise the rent due to increased demand and decreasing stock.  It is thought that tenants may become less transient, leading to longer let periods if good available stock is depleted because investors are not buying.  Is this change really going to help first time buyers?  http://www.arla.co.uk/media/1044465/arla-prs-report-february-2016.pdf
