For once we can bring some good news for buy-to-let landlords. Over the past few weeks, the outlook for the market has considerably improved. Now might be the time for buy-to-let landlords to review their portfolios to see what new deals can be found.

There has been an increase in the number of available products on the market within the buy-to-let sector, month on month, almost recovering to pre-coronavirus levels. After many lenders restricted their product offerings at the beginning of the pandemic, the interest rates on certain higher loan-to-value (LTV) products have decreased as experts predict a more risk-tolerant attitude will emerge soon.
To take advantage of this new development, if you’re interested in owning rental property or are already a B2L landlord, speak to your financial adviser to decide if now is the right time to evaluate your portfolio or even invest in a new property.
