A two bedroom terraced house, Sorell Drive, Tamebridge, Walsall, WS5. Ideal for a buy to let (BTL) investment opportunity. Marketed Bairstow eves (01926 312791) and at a very reasonable £110k asking price. You can find the full property details here.

Situated in the highly popular Tamebridge estate, which is very conducive for long term letting.

A modern 3 bedroom terraced house in the Rushall area of Walsall, WS4, currently marketed by Acorns & Co (01926 312060). Plenty of photos showing a very nice spec. The decor is neutral which is excellent news and the carpeting may need to be changed, but not essential.

I would highly recommend a viewing. Based on what we can see you could expect a rental of £625.00 pcm. Therefore, if the property sells at the current asking price of £125k will result in a yield of 6.00%

This one bed roomed  apartment is situated at Bridge Lofts, Leicester Street, Walsall, WS1.  On the market with Cottons chartered surveyors (0121 396 0665).  Priced at £52k, which is a guide price as the property is up for auction on 27/03/2018. The full details can be found here.

A yield of 10.61% was what caught my eye, which is based on an already achieved rent of £460.00 pcm. It really is a steal for anybody wishing to invest as a part of their extensive portfolio or as a first investment.  Situated in the heart of the town centre the property is ideal for the single professional.

I was recently reading a report by the Home website which suggested that landlords are selling en-masse their buy-to-let investments due to increasing burdens on them in the buy-to-let market. Their findings suggest the number of new properties that came onto the market nationally (for sale) jumped by 11% across the UK as a result.

Those increasing burdens include new tax rules coming in over the next 3 to 4 years and the announcement that all self-managing landlords (i.e. landlords that don’t use a letting agent to look after their buy-to-let property) will soon need to register with a compulsory redress scheme to resolve tenant arguments and disputes; as Westminster wants to heighten standards in the Private Rented Sector.

Interestingly, a few weeks ago I was chatting with a self-managed landlord from Bloxwich, when I was out who didn’t realise the other recent legislations that have hit the Private Rented sector, including the ‘Right to Rent’ regulations which came in to operation last year. Landlords have to certify their tenants have the legal right to live in the UK. This includes checking and taking copies of their tenant’s passport or visa before the tenancy is signed. Of course, if you use a Walsall letting agent to manage your property, they will usually sort this for you (as they will with the redress scheme when that is implemented).
