Landlords’ Barometer – #51: Hammered! Why landlords are feeling so negative

NES NS

Welcome to another edition of the “Landlords Barometer” with all the trending topics that have been engaging landlords on the propertytribes.com forum over the past few weeks.
Unsurprisingly, there has been a lot of negativity around that landlords want to vent about.

1. Rents rise as landlords exit the sector

It would seems that tax changes for landlords are starting to bite.

2. Run for the hills! The buy-to-let stampede has begun!

Further evidence and discussion that BTL landlords are thinking of selling up due to onerous tax changes.

3. Lenders report on landlord confidence trends

We have rounded up all the data from various different lenders to find out how they believe landlords are feeling about the state of buy-to-let.

4. The best thing about being a landlord now is . . .

With all the doom and gloom around at the moment due to the Government’s hammering of landlords, we asked the Property Tribes community what was making them keep the faith with property investment.

5. “The Week the Landlords Moved In” – BBC 1 programme

Our reviews of the three episodes in the first series gave landlords a chance to vent their frustration at how inept some of the landlords portrayed were!

6. I can’t retire . . . because I am a landlord!

This great title created a discussion of 27 comments and also gave some good advice that others could benefit from.
