Investors in buy-to-let should look to the north

Investors in buy-to-let should look to the north

When it comes to investing in buy-to-let properties around the UK, most landlords will be aware that they can get their highest levels of monthly payments from those tenants in the likes of London and the south-east.

However, according to a newly released report from the website Home.co.uk, while these properties will bring the highest rent costs, the initial price of buying them can mean that they have low yields for landlords.

For example, in some of the more expensive parts of London, where tenants will be paying their landlords the most money, they can occasionally bring in yields of just 2.2 to 2.4 per cent.

Some of the best investments can actually be found by looking at the north though, where initial purchase costs are far lower, allowing for better rental profits. The highest yields can be found in Bootle, near Liverpool, Merseyside, where it sits at a current level of 8.3 per cent.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801528317-ADNFCR
