Landlords enjoy stable returns in September

  • The yields achieved by property investors across England and Wales in September remained broadly similar to last month, Your Move found.

  • The South East was the only region to see returns fall month-onmonth, with the average landlord here getting a return of 3.3% in September versus 3.4% a month ago. All other regions offered the same yields as in August but are down compared to last year.

  • Across all surveyed areas, the average yield in England and Wales remained at 4.4% for a sixth successive month. But despite this stability, yields are still lower than a year ago. In September 2016 the average return was 4.8%.

  • Properties in northern areas continue to offer better returns than other areas. This month the average property in the North East had a yield of 5.1%, higher than any other area in the country. The North West was the only other region to post a similar return, it had a yield rate of 5% this month.
