DPS map of off-shore landlords

Deposit Protection Service (DPS) data reflects the diverse residency of UK landlords, with ex pats and foreign investors protecting their deposits from all over the world.

DPS Director, Kevin Firth says: 

“These figures provide a fascinating picture of the truly global diversity of landlords using the Deposit Protection Service. 

In terms of overseas residencies, unsurprisingly more than half of non UK resident landlords live in Europe, with France hosting more than one in ten (13.31%). (presumably a favourite retirement destination for ex-pat landlords). 

Spain follows in European popularity, with (6.69%), Ireland (6.43%), Germany (4.72%) and Switzerland (4.30%).

Other favourite UK landlord residencies are the English speaking nations of Australia (11.99%), USA (9.21%), Ireland (6.37%) or New Zealand (3.81%). 

The Arabic-speaking world houses 4.43% of landlords based aboard, within which the United Arab Emirates (which includes Dubai and Abu Dhabi) dominates with 121 of 166 landlords from the region.

(Expats clinging to piece of dear old blighty and a foothold in the UK property market?)
