Most property investors 'doing well'

Most property investors 'doing well'

The private rented sector has remained strong during the recession and most landlords are doing well, according to one industry expert.

Despite admitting there are both "winners and losers" within the buy-to-let sector, the managing director of the Buy-to-Let Show Oliver Romain said that landlords who rent out their properties as part of a long-term investment plan have been successful recently.

His comments come after FindaProperty.com's May rental index revealed that there was monthly rental growth in some areas of the UK.

The south-east saw a 0.7 per cent increase in rents, while there were hikes of 0.9 per cent and 0.3 per cent in Scotland and the West Midlands respectively.

Mr Romain remarked: "If you have got the capital and the ability to buy property at the moment through the traditional methods, then you will find that the yields are at an all-time high."
