Interesting statistics, but not surprising ones.

Do politicians realise the fact stated here by the NLA that three in 10 landlords with a single property only breakeven or make a loss? Seemingly from their electoral promises it appears not, as there’s easy votes to be won portraying Landlords as villains.

Again, this is a point that I’ve been making to investors for some time. Being a Landlord is not only hard work but the net profit is substantially less than people imagine, and if Landlords took out repayment mortgages instead of interest-only, and costed out their own labour in £’s per hour, how many would then be making a profit?

They are relying on capital growth, which is at the mercy of capricious markets.VERY risky.
