The surging residential rental market in England and Wales is attracting new investors both large and small, according to the latest from CBRE. The total value of rental stock now stands at £750 billion, up from £550 billion five years ago. More than one in ten mortgages are now buy-to-let, which is a rise of 19% from 2011. The UK’s rental market has also captured the interest of large scale investors, as tenant demand for stock continues to grow and returns prove strong.
