Landlords confidence at 18-month high, suggests industry report

Landlords confidence in their own lettings is at its highest level for 18 months, according to recent industry research.

A report from BM Solutions has suggested the optimistic start to 2018 has continued with landlords feeling more positive across four of the five key confidence indicators than they were this time last year, while the fifth – rental yields – remained static.

Phil Rickards, Head of BM Solutions, said: “It is encouraging to see that confidence across all of the key indicators has either increased or stayed the same on a 12 monthly basis and is particularly strong when landlords are considering their own lettings business.

“It’s a promising sign for landlords that rental yields are on the increase and are recovering some of the ground they have lost in recent years.”
