New report published gives insight into how landlords make decisions

A new report was published this week: Landlord portfolio management - past and future.

The research behind the report, Landlord portfolio management -  past and future, was commissioned by Shelter. It explores how landlords manage their portfolios and make decisions over buying and selling stock, how landlords manage their businesses, how this might affect tenants and how this might change in the future.

The research found that private rented sector is owned and managed by a very diverse group of landlords who are likely to respond in different ways to economic and fiscal changes. Overall it would appear that decisions over whether to purchase new properties are much more easily influenced than decisions to sell. The overall conclusion of this qualitative research was that the landlords interviewed showed a strong commitment to the private rented sector and are not likely to leave in a hurry.
