Data from properties managed by Find UK in London and North West shows the widening gap in rental yields as a percentage of property price.

Rental Yields Low in London

Rental Yields in Lancashire 3 times higher than in London

Our best value house in the North West of England now costs just £47,950 and delivers 8% to 9% rental yield. The same 2-bed house on the outskirts of London could cost up to £300,000 and deliver under 3% rental yield

Overseas investors consider London first when they are looking to invest in UK Property. The property boom in London over the past decade has meant that prices in London are now very high. These high property prices in London with no significant growth in rental has meant that rent yield in many areas of the capital has fallen below 3% as evidenced by data from properties managed by Find UK Property.

On the other hand Rental yields on low cost 2-bedroom terraced houses in Lancashire now approach 9% following the drop in property prices over the past 8 years. This is attracting an increasing number of overseas investors to look outside London for UK buy-to-let property. Consequently Find UK Property has stopped recommending London to new UK property investors.

Andy Noble, Senior Marketing Consultant at Find UK Property said “Non UK Residents including Expats are now looking outside London due to the high prices and low rental yields of the Capital.”

He added: “Increasing number of overseas buyers are now looking closely at rental yields to generate income and their research is taking them down the road of buying lower cost terraced property away from London. This generates higher income for the same total value of investment.
