Landlords opinion survey

For those landlords that love statistics here some from the Young Index quarterly survey of landlord attitudes.

In essence they point to the fact that most landlords see property as a long-term investment.

Interestingly they reflect the fact that landlords are largely positive about the prospects for the property market. Of those landlords questioned 78% believe prices will be higher in London in a years time compared to 49% who thought this to be the case outside the capital.

· 100% of landlords intend to hold their residential property investments for the next 12 months.

· 47% intend to hold their assets for at least 10 years.

· 24% of landlords intend to retain their property investments for the next 20 years or more.

· The average period that residential property investors expect to hold their property investment assets is 12 years.

· 49% of investors are considering purchasing additional residential property assets within London over the next 12 months.

· 22% of investors are looking at opportunities in the UK outside of the capital.

· 78% of respondents believe that London prices will be at current levels or higher by this time next year.

· For UK property outside of the capital, 49% expect prices to be at current levels or higher by this time next year.

· Landlords expect to see an average price increase of 1.48% by this time next year, twice the increase they were expecting last quarter (0.7%).

· The predicted 12 month outlook for UK property prices outside the capital is a fall of 0.58%, compared to the drop of 1.0% predicted last quarter.

· 94% of respondents expect the Bank of England base rate to be higher than the current all time low of 0.5% by the beginning of 2011.

· The average base rate expectation for Q1 2011 stands at 1.25%, up from the 1.1% predicted for Q4 2010 in last quarter’s Index.

· 93% of landlords believe that Estate Agencies should be regulated.
