Expat buy-to-let investors on the increase yet again,
This is still a growth area for expat investors as more people see the buy-to-let market as a sound option for the future. Traditional forms of investment such as banks and building societies are still producing poor returns so investors are looking elsewhere.
The house rental market in the UK is very buoyant as people trying to get onto the property ladder find it more difficult due to rising house prices.
The demand for good rental property has increased over the last 12 months and would seem to be continuing.
Experts expected the expat buy-to-let market to decrease, and it did after all the new regulations were announced but that trend has now been reversed.
