Landlords Increasingly Selling Their Rental Inventory

In the ever-evolving landscape of the British property market, landlords are finding themselves at a crossroads. The rise in mortgage rates and living costs, compounded by significant legislative changes, is prompting a re-evaluation of rental property ownership. Fisher and Partners, led by the experienced Toby Hill, stands ready to help.

The Challenge at Hand

Recent reports have shed light on the stark reality facing landlords today. With the buy-to-let market we’ve witnessed a notable trend: landlords across Great Britain are choosing to sell their properties in an attempt to offset losses from tax changes, rate hikes, and stringent regulations. 

This shift has not only reduced the number of available rental properties but has also led to an increase in rents, affecting the dynamics of the property market profoundly.

Expert Insight from Toby Hill

Toby Hill, a managing partner at Fisher and Partners, with his finger firmly on the pulse of the lettings market, observes, “The landscape for landlords has shifted dramatically over recent years. With the accumulation of tax changes, escalating mortgage costs, and the looming updates to energy performance standards, it’s understandable why many are reconsidering their investment. Despite these challenges, there are strategic exits and opportunities for those looking to sell, ensuring they can do so in a manner that safeguards their financial future.”
