Tough love for landlords? All is not lost!
Landlords and the Buy-to-let market could be forgiven for feeling hard done by in recent years.
The buy-to-let market has been on the receiving end of some tough love when it comes to both tax and lending criteria during the last 24 months. This, coupled with the new Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) lending rules, may in many instances see some landlords throwing in the rental market towel.
And with some two thirds of landlords claiming that it is now harder to secure buy-to-let finance on a property – it would seem that much of this anecdotal discussion has become more than just hearsay.
