Increasing Numbers Of Landlords Investing Through Limited Companies

One of the most important decisions facing landlords today is whether or not to invest through a limited company. Whilst in recent years the purchasing of investment properties through limited companies tended to be concentrated towards the larger portfolio holders, more recent times have seen an increasing number of landlords look to purchase through a limited company.

New data compiled by Paragon Bank, found that within the next year, 47% of all landlords who currently own between one to five properties will be looking to purchase through a limited company. As expected, the percentage of landlords looking to invest through a limited company increases to over 78% when the current portfolio size increases to more than 6 buy-to-let properties.

A separate survey of over 700 landlords undertaken by BVA BDRC found that within the next 12 months, over 14% were planning to increase the size of their property portfolio, and of these, 66% were planning to use a buy-to-let mortgage.
