Supply continues to outstrip demand in the private rental sector and with the current stamp duty holiday reducing the potential SDLT bill for landlords and interest rates and an all time low it’s no surprise that we have seen our investor buyer registration on the rise.

Our Lettings team have highlighted these properties on the market with us as sound investments.
