Atkinson McLeod - August 2013 Newsletter

At Atkinson McLeod, we have felt Buy-to-Let activity gain real momentum over the last 8 months. Rental yields have grown and capital values are increasing. It therefore comes as no surprise to us, that official figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders have announced that Buy-to-Let lending has reached the highest level for the last 5 years. We take a look at some of the headline figures in our first article.

The housing market in general seems to be on a road to recovery. A survey by the RICS found that July saw the greatest number of potential buyers looking to enter the market since July 2009. Our second article this month look in more detail.

Finally, the Taxman has called time on an amnesty it launched for landlords who have sold properties but not declared capital gains. HMRC are committing to greater scrutiny, our final article explains more.

As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod.

Best regards,

Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
