Buying to let is one of the only areas of the property industry which is currently booming, and there has never been a better time to get involved. If you have savings and are looking for a way to subsidise your income or pension, it could be one of the greatest investments you’ll make. The rental market is on the rise, with the proportion of UK households renting having increased by 4% over the last decade. This could be down to a few factors. As the Guardian recently revealed, on average a first-time buyer will have to save for up to a decade before they are even able to afford the deposit for a new home, which means that more and more people are resorting to renting instead. On top of this, in the light of the last few financially turbulent years, people are becoming more flexible when it comes to moving house for work, meaning that they don’t want to be tied down for a mortgage. As it grows in popularity, the costs of renting have also increased over the last few years, with property website Right Move stating that the average UK rent has risen by 13.6% since 2009.
