Htb2 Effect On Rentals?

Recommended Posts

I contacted an agent today about a house that was advertised for rent on Friday. Only to be told that the owner had withdrawn it to 'do the house up'.

In light of yesterday's announcement for HTB2, I am suspicious of the timing but one swallow does not make a summer and the plural of anecdote is not data.

Can people keep an eye out for this and post any evidence they find. FWIW, this house is worth around £240k and was up at £750 per month. A few of the neighbours have sold in recent times. Assumed less than tip top condition.

A surge in supply would be very welcome.

I assume on of the consequences of HTB2 will be to

prompt some smaller landlords to sell up. That should increase the supply of property on the market particularly outside London and the SE which may put a damper on any HPI in those areas. Not sure.what impact it will have on rents because although the supply of rental property might decline as landlords sell up presumably the supply of tenants is also going to decline as a result of HTB2.
