Landlords’ Barometer – #58: Is buy-to-let dead?

Welcome to the latest edition of the Landlords Barometer.

Our new motto for is “Live your best landlord life” by sharing and being part of the private rented sector community.

Lots going on in the sector, but here’s what got landlords engaged and talking:

View the keynote presentation at the RLA conference in Manchester, where Andy Burnham’s claims were a major landlord talking point across social media.

2. Landlords speak out against attacks on the private rental sector

3. Is buy-to-let dead, or am I just late to the party?

This discussion has been trending for over a week now as it’s proved very popular with our community.

4. Pensions vs. Buy-to-Let: which is the winner?

This evergreen question attracted over 60 responses.

5. “Blood up the walls” – the Labour housing video

This video shows the very darkest underbelly of the private rented sector – but was it a fair portrayal?
