Student accommodation continues to set pace for landlords

Student accommodation continues to set pace for landlords

04 Feb 2014

The buy to let sector continues to do well for landlords - but student accommodation is setting the benchmark for letting performance.

Despite monthly rents increasing by 2% during 2013, the average buy-to-let yield for a UK landlord sits at 6.1% gross, down 0.1% on 2012. But student accommodation thrashes this figure with sustainable and assured yields of 7 to 9% - net.

Peter McDermott, Director of UK-based Go Global Investments, said: "These latest figures from Countrywide Residential Lettings show that despite 'Generation Rent', where the number of people renting from a landlord has doubled to 8.5 million in 15 years, gross rental yields are sticking around the 6% mark.

Horspath Driftway, Headington "I have been a client of Scott Fraser since 1996 and, on a day to day basis, deal with both the Summertown and Headington offices. Throughout my relationship with Scott Fraser my requirements have been efficiently dealt with in a friendly professional manner. They have found me a succession of good tenants and successfully managed a number of major and minor refurbishments. I have referred them to a number of my friends. I happily give them a 5 star rating. Across my portfolio I deal with 6 different firms of letting agents in different towns and cities across England and Scott Fraser are the best by a considerable margin."
