Private rented sector landlords continue to be battered from all quarters

Welcome to the November edition of the  “Landlords Barometer” where I highlight the trending topics and news from the Property Tribes forum.

Private rented sector landlords continue to be battered from all quarters as the second national lock-down sets in.

Here are the most viewed topics of the past month:

3.  Samuel Leeds interviewed under police caution

Property analyst, Kate Faulkner, ignited a trending topic with her round up of property price predictions for 2021.

5. A deep dive into the London property market

What happens in London very often filters out in ripples, so this deep dive zoom call was a popular interview with another landlord with two decades of investing in the capital.

6.  Is BTL past its prime?
