This week on Ask Rob & Rob, Rob asks Rob & Rob…

Are the government trying to force us out?

This week, the brilliantly named Rob, asks a question regarding the build to rent scheme, and how this may impact upon the existing PRS. Asking is this an intentional ploy by The Government to eradicate small time BTL Landlords.

Rob D begins by acknowledging that there will definitely be more institutional investment in BTL, and that it is probably healthy for the sector not to be controlled entirely by private BTL Landlords. But thinks there is room for both in the marketplace, due to the demand for different types of products.

Rob B agrees that whilst the balance may shift, it shouldn’t do so radically. Rob B goes on to discuss how quality has improved for student accommodation, and how in the long term this could give us a glimpse into the future of the BTL market, and that it could be a good thing if this competition increases the quality of stock available to tenants.
