Landlords still reporting a high demand

Landlords still reporting a high demand for rental properties in Sheffield.

Landlords still appear to be experiencing high levels of demand for rental properties according to a survey by the specialist lender Paragon Mortgages. A trend that we here at Belvoir! Sheffield are continuing to see as demand remains high across Sheffield for rental property of all types and landlords continue to invest in property in Sheffield.

The Paragon Mortgages report found that nationally during Q3 2014 41% of landlords said tenant demand was growing or booming, 51% said in their view demand was stable with just 3% of landlords describing tenant demand as declining. 

Looking ahead, 61% of landlords felt that the level of tenant arrears would remain stable over the next 12 months, compared to 12% of landlords stating that in their view tenant arrears would increase and whilst 8% expect a decrease.

The survey also asked landlords what the most important factor is when they are looking for new buy-to-let mortgage finance. Interest rates remained the most important, having been top of the list for the past 12 months, followed by average loan-to-value and product fees.
