According to a recent article from the Guardian, the UK is in need of 230,000 more rental homes to meet growing demand in the market.

As the price of living crisis escalates, getting onto the housing ladder is becoming more and more difficult, especially for first time buyers. With more people renting for longer periods as they save for a deposit, the amount of rental properties required is on the rise, meaning now is a perfect time to get into property investment.

This paired with the ongoing lack of government investment in new rental properties, including into social housing, means more people will be renting privately for longer.

According to official government figures, The number of households in the UK private rented sector increased from 2.8 million in 2007 to 4.5 million in 2017.
