London landlord: share your views on challenges facing the private rented sector
Propertymark is working with the University of Dundee to understand more about the plans landlords in London have to retain their property investments, increase investment or withdraw from the sector and why.
With changes over the past few years, including the Tenant Fees Act, Section 24 tax rules, minimum energy efficiency standards, changes to capital gains tax rules, higher rates on stamp duty, an eviction ban during the pandemic, patchy funding for energy efficiency improvements, and the Renters (Reform) Bill, landlords have been given many reasons to consider their continued investment in the private rented sector.
At the same time, pressure on rents has increased incomes and house price growth has driven strong capital returns.
Landlords are being invited to particulate in a short Landlord Investment Expectation Survey, which is strictly confidential. The link to the survey is here. It is anticipated the survey will be open until 31 August 2023.
As a thank you for taking part, all respondents will be offered the opportunity to be entered into a draw to win one of five £100 Amazon vouchers.
