Following last Thursdays successful landlord buy-to-let seminar at the Hilton Hotel, Portsmouth, Martin & Co are keen to welcome feedback in order to create an agenda for the next landlord seminar later this year.
A full house of existing and prospective landlords attended the evenings presentation, which included contributions from local property experts, mortgage advisors, accountants and solicitors.
Many of the questions from the floor included changes to multiple occupancy property licensing, legal legislation and capital growth vs. high yields.
The general consensus was that there has seldom been a better time to be a buy-to-let landlord! With the ever changing mortgage application criteria more and more people are choosing to rent rather than buy. Similarly, it is predicted that house prices in the local area have returned to their values in the height of the market in 2006/2007, and are set to rise for foreseeable future. This increase in tenant demand, healthy annual yields and sustained capital growth are a welcome fillet to local landlords.
Thank you for all those who attended the seminar, we very much look forward to seeing you again at our next event later in the year.
