Telegraph: Market 'reacting To Buy-To-Let Reforms'

Recommended Posts

Market 'reacting to buy-to-let reforms'
Economist Andrew Webb said investors were reacting to ex-Chancellor George Osborne's buy-to-let reforms and to a trend for universities and developers to build modern accommodation in Belfast city centre.

And he said developments of student accommodation which were winning planning permission in the city centre presented a "very compelling offer".

"This higher end accommodation really matters for the universities as they have set themselves very ambitious targets on attracting international students who demand quality accommodation."

Didn't understand very well.

Are LLs getting out of BTL to get into student Lets? If so, some kind of boom in making?

You missed the first paragraph which helps it make sense

Houses used for student lets are going on the market in growing numbers as a crackdown on buy-to-let takes effect, it's been claimed.

But if supply is increasing and your costs are increasing getting out is the sensible option - but I guess the real reason is that they haven't been let for the next academic year...
