Buy-to-let (BTL) lending remains strong as we head into 2023, with more than half of existing property investors planning to invest more into housing in the new year .
Landlords made about 12% of all UK house purchases in 20221 the highest percentage in six years. As house-buying affordability remains low and demand for rental accommodation stays high, the prominence of BTL could be repeated in 2023. Indeed, almost three quarters of those who currently live in privately rented homes are saving for a house deposit, according to a recent survey 10 , but 56% are now less optimistic that they will be able to save enough to meet their goals. With landlords looking to boost their portfolios, some investment hotspots include Slough, Liverpool and Aberdeen, which all have thriving rental markets and strong predicted growth rates.
