Skipton head of products Kris Brewster says: “Tenant demand has remained strong throughout 2011 and into 2012, according to our estate agent subsidiary, Connells Group.
“It has recorded a 14.8 per cent uplift in the number of tenants moving into rental properties through its 95 offices nationally in 2011 compared to the previous year.
“Based on this insight, we believe buy-to-let continues to play a vital part in returning the housing market to health, in terms of meeting significant demand for quality private rental properties-which are a vital stepping stone for the first time buyers of the future-and in contributing to property turnover amid the ongoing, subdued market conditions.”
