Houses outside central London and the south east provided the highest rental returns at 5.9 per cent in the three months to August, according to the Association of Residential Letting Agents latest quarterly survey. Houses in the south east saw returns of 5.2 per cent while central London saw returns of 4.8 per cent.
Chairman John Crossley says: “This latest survey continues to show buy to let opportunities for the private investor. And it shows clearly that potential investor landlords should consider looking further afield. There is buy to let activity all over the country that should be worth investigating.”
