Landlords Calculator

Until now landlords and their professional advisers have struggled with traditional calculators and spreadsheets to calculate rental yields, cashflow, returns on equity and the interest rates a property deal achieves break even or neutral cashflow.

Our Landlords Calculator takes you through set of numbers and provides easy to follow explanations a step at a time making all of the above simple.

Simply follow the the instructions, type in your numbers and calculator does everything else for you. The key figures you need, together with explanations, appear on screen as you go.

When you have completed the process you will be given an opportunity to add a title to your masterpiece and have a neat report emailed to you for future reference or, if you are a professional adviser, to present to your clients.

@Patrick Caden, can you see the "Next" button just below the box where you enter your rent and just above the Social Media sharing icons? If so press that to proceed to the next step.

hi mark,

the calculator is fantastic, thank you. just a question when i put both my properties in they come in at break even interest at 6.83% and 6.5% is that about right and what break even percentage should i be looking at for future purchases.

Hi Sally

If my break even figures come out below 4.5% over and above the current base rate of 0.5% that's when the panic alarm goes off.

The reason for this is that the Bank of England has stated on many occasions in recent years that the natural base rate should be 5%, i.e. 4.5% more than it is now.

Therefore, the answer to your question depends on how much you are paying now. Most of my mortgages are currently 2.25% so a break even rate of 6.75% is right for those.However, let's say you are currently paying 4% - in that case I would suggest you are looking for a break even rate of 8.5%.

Make sense?

Thank you,yeah it made sense after i got the help of a teenager :). It will definitely influence the price I pay for properties. Less guess work !!!

Hi Sally

You can also use the calculator to decide the optimal level of finance but changing the mortgage amount figures until you arrive at something sensible in terms of break even interest rates. It's a useful tool you influence decisions on whether to sell properties or walk away from deals you were thinking about getting into too 🙂

Great calculator. Very easy to use and informative.

Hi Mark

Just used the calculator; a really good tool though I would prefer to have it in one doc rather than going onto the "next' page ( personal choice 🙂 ).

Could I ask what the the optimum yield to strive for is? It's probably a "piece of string" question but wondered if there was a line that can be drawn that will say whether the property is worth pursuing or is a "walk away".
