Average BTL property returns £22k a year

The average BTL property has provided an annual return of £22,000 according to LSL property latest calculations.

The £22k figure is a 14-month high,  equating to a 12% return over the year to January, made up from £13,594 property price growth added to £8,394 of rental income.

But before any champagne corks are popped, or non-landlords air stampede into the comments box with their trollish disgruntlement,  this figure doesn't include any expenses, mortgage payments, rental voids or other maintenance costs, which would throw up a very different figure.

However, overall, the figures remain positive - for now, thanks largely to a chronic UK housing shortage that continues to pump up, both prices and rents.

LSL director, Adrian Gill, comments: 

“Landlords’ balance sheets are looking healthier than at any point since 2014, and property investors are looking at an excellent rate of return from their portfolios.”
