Kris Brewster, head of products at Skipton, says: “Tenant demand has remained strong throughout 2011 and into 2012, according to our estate agent subsidiary, Connells Group.
“It has recorded a 14.8% uplift in the number of tenants moving into rental properties through its 95 offices nationally in 2011 compared to the previous year.
“Based on this insight, we believe buy-to-let continues to play a vital part in returning the housing market to health, in terms of meeting significant demand for quality private rental properties–which are a vital stepping stone for the first time buyers of the future–and in contributing to property turnover amid the ongoing, subdued market conditions.”
