Positive outlook on tenant demand

43% of landlords have seen increasing tenant demand over the past 12 month according to a poll by BTL lender Paragon.

Landlords reported seeing increased demand from both young people and families, with 51% of those polled feeling positive that demand will grow further over the coming 12 months.

John Heron, Managing Director of Paragon Mortgages commented on the poll -

‘It is no surprise that rental demand is steadily increasing. With continued stress on the housing stock driving prices up, tough affordability hurdles for would be buyers and a social rented sector under pressure as a result of renewed interest in right to buy, a steady increase in rental demand was practically inevitable,’

‘It is important that landlords continue to expand the supply of rented property in order to maintain balance and so avoid unsustainable increases in rents. A healthy, competitive and innovative buy to let market is critical to this,’
