43% of landlords own two or more properties

Author: Michael Cook

Nearly half of the UK’s landlords have two or more properties in their portfolio, according to the Property Academy’s latest Landlords & Tenants Survey.

“This statistic highlights the growth of the buy-to-let market” comments Michael Cook, Assistant Managing Director of Lettings at Romans. “It suggests that many landlords have consciously opted to grow their portfolio and buy more properties because of the strength of this type of investment.”

According to the survey more than a quarter of landlords own three of more properties and 9% own six or more.

“Investing in property and becoming a buy-to-let landlord offers you two ways of earning money; via the monthly rental income and via capital growth, hence its popularly amongst investors” says Michael.

Rents across the UK rose by 7.6% in the three months to December 2014, compared to the same period in 2013, according to the HomeLet Rental Index, and with Romans’ experts predicting price increases of 5-10% during 2015 more people are expected to look at buy-to-let opportunities. In fact, in the Landlords & Tenants Survey 32% said they are ‘highly likely’ or ‘possibly’ likely to add to their portfolio in the next 12 months.

Although a portfolio of properties can offer large financial returns, the day to day management can be time-consuming and stressful, therefore Romans has launched a new Portfolio service specifically designed for landlords owning multiple properties.

Rental valuation

The Portfolio Service offers landlords all the benefits of the Managed service, such as the organisation of any maintenance and repairs and regular property inspections,  as well as;

One dedicated contact across your portfolio

Your Portfolio Manager will have complete knowledge of your entire portfolio, and will be able to answer any questions you have timely and efficiently.

Inspection reports

Your dedicated contact will organise each property’s inspection visit and submit a report; offering consistent views and a detailed record across your portfolio.

Annual portfolio valuation

Your Portfolio Manager will organise annual valuations in line with the current market conditions.

Annual portfolio tour

Once a year your Portfolio Manager will invite you on a chauffeured portfolio tour. This ensures any changes in your portfolio are recorded and provides you with peace of mind that your properties are being looked after.

Michael adds: “We will also provide you with the latest investment news and advice, based on your specific requirements, and a weekly Top 10 investment opportunities email; ideal if you are keen to grow your portfolio even more.”
