The Future of Property Investment

If you thought you had the UK property market all figured out, you might just be surprised by what’s to come.

Published on: May 11, 2016 @ 15:03

Whether it be smart homes, the use of drones, increased regulation, or virtual reality, the property industry is set for major change.

The rise of institutional investors is also something to look out for. As the property investment industry becomes more regulated and barriers to entry increase, a new breed of ‘super landlords’ may appear who operate on a mass scale in order to be able to absorb all of additional costs that will be levied on landlords in the coming years.

The Starter Homes Revolution

Article written by Property Investor Awards

Since the publication of the Housing and Planning Bill, property investors, developers, planners, and LGAs have been trying to understand the practical implications of the provisions. The Bill is currently sitting at the House of  Commons stage, after going to the House of Lords and the Communities and Local Government Select Committee, for further scrutiny.  The Government showed its further commitment to “turn generation rent into generation buy”  by stinging smaller landlords with an extra 3% of Stamp Duty Land Tax from the 1st April 2016 on the purchase of additional properties like buy-to-lets and second homes, to help fund the building of new starter homes.

Institutional investors set to revolutionise private rental sector

A rental “revolution” is starting to take place in UK with approximately £30bn of institutional investment specifically earmarked for the building of new homes for rent in the UK. This is unprecedented where the UK has held a traditional tendency towards owning rather than renting property. The increase in (and Government encouragement) of institutional investment is set to shake-up the rental sector potentially changing the landscape for landlords for many years to come.

Since 2012 private rental has been the second largest housing tenure in England behind owner occupation, and is now overtaking social housing. The market is no longer being classed as the “private” rental sector but as a “professional” rental sector, where bigger landlords are creating bigger schemes and driving supply.
