- Houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs) provide a higher yield than the other property types. A factor is this would be the higher rental income due to each individual tenant paying an inclusive rent (with bills being included within the rent payments).
- Multi-unit block of flats also demonstrates a strong yield, although the yields are lower than HMOs, the rental payments do not include bills as these are covered by the tenant separately. Therefore, taking this into account the net yields for houses of multiple occupancy and multi-unit blocks of flats are similar.
- On average, the increase in yield from single self-contained houses of multiple occupancy is 5% across the UK.
- As you travel further North, the average yield increase. This is due to property prices often being lower in the North, therefore these properties produce better yields. However, the flip side is they tend to produce less capital growth from property price inflation.
- On average, London offers the lowest yield across all property markets. This will be due to the high capital value within the London area and contrary to the properties in the North, the rental income is lower. However, over time London has proven that capital growth is the strongest in the UK.
- From the data we have analysed we are yet to see what impact Covid-19 has had on the commercial market.
