According to recent research, Manchester is one of the top 10 places in the UK for rental growth with average yields of almost 9%.

The M6 postcode, covering Pendleton, Claremont, Langworthy and Salford, offers the top average rental yields in Manchester (8.84%) and has an average monthly rent of £1,034. Close to the centre of Manchester and the University of Salford, this postcode is popular with students and young professionals.

South of the city centre, the M14 postcode, covering Fallowfield, Rusholme and Moss Side, is seeing average rental yields of over 8%.  Again this postcode is popular with students, as it is close to the main University of Manchester campus.

The M5 postcode, which is close to the M6, offers average rental yields of 8%. This area includes the Ordsall estate, which has been given a £100 million transformation to create a complex of modern townhouses and apartments. The M38 postcode, in the north west of the city, covering Little Hulton, is giving landlords average rental yields of almost 7%.

Peter Armistead, Director of Armistead Property comments: “Manchester has undergone a revival following significant investment, which has funded major regeneration and brought new jobs to the powerhouse of the North. Manchester has seen £800 million invested in the

Airport City, £235 million for the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials and The Factory, with £110 million dedicated to the arts. Employment in the city is forecast to get an additional boost, with expected growth of 3.8% between 2015 and 2020.

It’s no surprise that both UK and international investors are queuing up to purchase BTL property.  Manchester beats London hands down on affordable property prices. Over the last three years, 45% of residential sales across the city were completed for less than £125,000. Manchester also offers much better rental yields, with between 8-9% in some postcodes, compared with an average of 4-6% in London.

There has been a surge in demand for rental accommodation with increasing numbers of students and young professionals working, or studying in the City.  Manchester’s population is growing and is expected to surpass three million by 2035.

The housing market in being bolstered by a major regeneraton north east of Victoria station, where 8,000 new homes are being built over the next 10-15 years. There’s also a £1bn plan for another 8,000 homes, including the conversion of the Murrays’ Mills and a further 3,000 homes on the former ITV Granada studios at St John’s Quarter.”

British buy to let landlords face 13% rise on average in tax profit

Buy to let landlords in the UK could see an average 13% increase in their taxable profit due to the reduction in mortgage relief and other change which will have a substantial effect on their profits, it is claimed. The mortgage tax relief changes introduced in April, which are being phased in over the next few years, mean that interest relief on buy to let mortgages is being gradually reduced. By 2020 some 100% of buy to let finance costs will be restricted to the basic tax rate of only 20%. According to the research from online letting agent Upad the difference between tax due to be paid in the 2017/2018 financial year and 2018/2019 will…

Landlords’ taxable profit set to ‘sharply increase’

With the Government now almost two months into rolling out Section 24 and its new buy-to-let tax relief system, online letting agent Upad believes landlords will see an average 13% increase in their taxable profit from 2017/18 to 2018/19. The changes, which started being phased in on 6th April 2017, mean that landlords must now pay tax on turnover, rather than the difference between rental income and mortgage interest. Until April, landlords could deduct the full cost of their mortgage interest payments, or any other property finance, on their rental properties before they paid tax. Two months in, mortgage, loan and overdraft interest costs can no longer be considered in calculating taxable rental income. The changes…
