  • It has only been luck, hope and hear keeping this market up so far. I was lurking in the forums earlier and found some useful information on BTL & here it is:

    http://www.creditaction.org.uk/helpful-resources/debt-statistics/2011/august.html

    “As at the end of March, there were 1,313,200 buy-to-let mortgages outstanding, worth a total of £152 bn.
    By value, buy-to-let mortgages accounted for 12.3% of all mortgages. ”

    So I calculated.. that works out at £115,747 Average mortgage which is approx 70% LTV at average house price of £165k.

    Over a million voters erm I mean BTL must be **itting themselves because house prices could easily drop 20% from here without ‘damaging the economy’

  • LTV will be higher than this as BTL tends to be flats, terrace type places and semis.

  • Nice one for that khards. Imagine the downward pressure on prices if a majority of the BTL sector were to try escaping all of a sudden

  • A quick rough calculation suggests that one home sale in seven is now a repo – quite a high proportion, historically..

  • sibley's b'stard child says:

    As many as that UT? I would have thought it’d be more one in twelve (say 40k sales per month and an equal amount of repos per year)?
