But the doors are closing fast

Buy to let landlords begin their stampede from the property market

New landlord instructions (an indicator of buy-to-let activity) dropped below the long run average of 16%. 11% more Chartered Surveyors reported a rise in landlord instructions compared to 19% in the previous quarter. An uncertain backdrop may have dissuaded new investors in the buy-to-let market. The ongoing credit crunch is likely to have had some impact by encouraging banks and building societies to be more selective in their lending criteria. The survey suggests more landlords are dropping out of the market as the effect of interest rate hikes seeps through.

  • Sorry landlords. You can give as many instructions as you want in order to exit the market. You are just not going to sell them. You are going to go down with your property like a captain with his ship. In tecnical terms you are fooked
