BTL sales booming as landlords rush to benefit from stamp duty holiday

Recommended Posts

The Guardian reports that BTL landlords made up 15% of agreed property purchases in November, the highest level since 2016; https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/dec/14/buy-to-let-sales-boom-as-landlords-rush-to-benefit-from-stamp-duty-holiday

Naturally this has been linked to the temporary halting of stamp duty on properties up to £500,000, as well as pent up demand following the first lockdown. 

Perhaps most interesting is the fact that the most popular areas for investment in November were the North and Midlands - London didn't appear in the top ten.

Is anyone surprised by this news, or is it how you saw the end of the year playing out?
