5 Reasons to invest in UK rental property

Buy-to-let remains one of the first preferred options of investors looking for property investment in the UK. After all, it comes with plenty of benefits.

If you’re looking to invest, here’s our top 5 reasons to invest in a buy-to-let property:

1. RENTAL INCOME

If you are seeking a way to earn passive income, property investment in the UK is your best bet. You will receive a certain amount in the form of rent from your tenants. If you choose an investment wisely even after paying the mortgage and taxes, you can save a decent amount.

2. HIGH DEMAND

Competition between tenants for available properties was nearly double (+94%) at the end of 2021 and an imbalance between supply and demand continues.

3. CAPITAL GROWTH

You could generate capital growth as your money grows as your property value increases. A suitable property will always increase in value after a few years. Be sure to analyse property data to reap maximum benefits in the long run.

4. OFFSET COSTS AGAINST TAX

Offsetting some costs against your self-assessment tax return is possible. These costs include fees you pay to letting agents, interest on your mortgage payments(SPV), money spent on advertising your property, repairs, and council tax. Tax relief for maintenance repairs and renovations may also be available.

5. DISCOUNTED PRICES AVAILABLE

For investors, sometimes you can snap up a deal by buying property for auction, repossessions, properties with short leases or cash deals etc.
