Rents have only risen slightly over the past year, but rising house prices mean the value of buy-to-let homes has increased markedly.
Shawbrook says the value of the private rented sector had grown to £1.4 trillion by the end of 2020, with buy-to-let properties increasing in value by 5.8% year-on-year.
With the market now cooling down a little, landlords may be handed a boost by a lack of supply. Rental homes made up 17% of all households in England, Scotland and Wales as of March 2021.
