Title: Buy-to-let in the crosshairs
Sponsor: Kent Reliance
Topics to discuss:
- The buy-to-let market seems to be becoming a scapegoat – especially in the consumer press – for the UK’s housing crisis. To what extent does growth in buy-to-let pose a threat to the housing market?
- How could the proposed curbs on buy-to-let lending such as LTV or debt-to-income caps impact the B2L market, in particular specialist B2L?
- Do you think this, as well as the tax relief changes announced in the Budget, will lead to material change in the BTL market? Would this necessarily be a bad thing?
- What could B2L restrictions mean for gross lending? Will this boost supply for the owner-occupied sector, or just result in a smaller B2L market?
