    Change in landlord behaviour re: Ltd Co's

    Almost one-fifth of rental homes are now owned by investment companies rather than individual landlords, new research has shown.

    A record high of 18% of buy-to-lets were owned by firms in the first-half of the year, according to Hamptons International.

    The figures were 4% higher than last year and 8% more than in 2016, with Yorkshire and Humber (25%), the North West (20%) and London (19%), the regions where companies have taken the biggest hold.

    The average cost of a new let in Britain rose to £956 by last month, but rental growth slowed to 0.7%, down from 1.3% in May.

    “Nearly one in five homes let so far this year were owned by a company landlord, almost double the proportion in 2015, before the tapering of mortgage interest tax relief changes were announced.” Aneisha Beveridge of Hamptons International said.

    More experienced landlords with existing portfolios will dominate the buy-to-let (BTL) sector in the second half of 2019, according to predictions.

    Andrew Turner, chief executive of Commercial Trust Limited  believes that landlords with larger portfolios and more equity are better placed to make additional purchases and suggests they may snap up properties sold by anyone leaving the sector.

    The changes that have taken place over the past three years have had an impact on landlords with smaller portfolios of one or two rental properties, he added.

    Specialist lender Paragon reported an increase in the number of landlords with large portfolios, applying for BTL lending in the first half of 2019.

    The lender found that 88 per cent of its total BTL business came from landlords using limited companies operating large portfolios, an increase of 16 per cent year on year.

    in a nutshell the supermarket landlords will purchase property that is being sold by the smaller landlord

    I know personalty even if Boris gives us a tax break I would still buy property via a Company if the deal was right

    I still think a Landlord is better off with a personal owned business But there comes a time when it is no longer tax efficient

    Thats the point where a Company is handy But at that point you really are running a business not an investment ...
