Much has been made in recent months of the negative reaction by landlords to the Government’s pursuit of their home ownership agenda at the expense of the Private Rented Sector (PRS).  Commentators have expressed significant disappointment at the changes to taxation and lending policies and deep concern over a potential landlord exodus from the PRS.

The seventh issue of the Rent Check considers the immediate impact on rental levels since the Rent Check began in 2013 to March 2016 and discusses the prospects for rental growth, and the potential for landlords to re-look at their attitudes to investment management strategies to protect their returns.
