Increasing Influence Of Portfolio Landlords


  • The number of portfolio landlords is increasing. In 2018 one in every six landlords had a portfolio of five or more properties, up from one in 20 back in 2010. It is estimated such landlords now account for virtually half of all tenancies.
  • In comparison, the number and influence of single property landlords has decreased. In 2010 three-quarters of landlords had just one property, today that figure is less than half. In 2010 such landlords were responsible for 40% of all tenancies, today it is just 21%.
  • Landlords with over 100 properties now account for 3.1% of all tenancies in the market and it is highly likely that the next reiteration of this survey will see this figure increase dramatically as the sector responds to current demands.
  • Latest data from the British Property Federation indicates levels of construction in the Build-to-Rent market are up 40% year on year. 80% of landlords with a portfolio of over 100 properties are companies.
