Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced a rent freeze for private and public rented properties with a moratorium on evictions during winter. It comes at a time when landlords were already thinking of getting out of the buy-to-let sector. A week ago the Financial Times reported that “many buy-to-let investors plan to sell all or part of their portfolios.” There’s no doubt that this is the final straw.
The plan, which is meant to protect tenants has left landlords shocked, and with many on the fence about whether or not they should sell their portfolios, it appears that the new measures have confirmed their decision: it’s time to sell. By the time these measures are lifted, if they’re lifted, in March next year, the price you’ll get for your buy-to-let properties will have dropped.
