18 December 2007UK landlords believe that properties in the south-east of England, particularly London, will continue to generate strong returns next year, according to a new study from Alliance & Leicester.
Landlords believe that rental yields in central London will reach 44 per cent next year, the study found, with the south-east of England thought to be set to produce rises of ten per cent.
Meanwhile, 71 per cent of buy-to-let landlords say that they see their overall prospects for their property investment as either good or very good, the research added.
"It is encouraging that buy-to-let landlords indicate they are feeling buoyant about the outlook for 2008," said Jeremy Claridge, head of specialist mortgages at Alliance & Leicester.
"Regardless of a tough financial year, it is clear the buy-to-let property market is still healthy for longstanding landlords, especially for those in the south-east of the country," Mr Claridge added.
Last week Property Hawk suggested that young professionals are "the cream of the crop" for landlords when it comes to suitable tenants.
