Don't forget you risk those mum and dad investors to ask for cash from tenants, and not claim much or any income. Or could be some through the books and some under the table. Either way if you take away the real losses, then why invest in a rental unless it's positive! Only way is to buy cheap, or increase rents. Based on current demand, It's looking like there is a real chance to increase rents if landlords costs go up. Investors treat it as a business, but labour doesn't seem to get that. Instead increase builds, open up land for development, encourage warm affordable homes, for first time buyers. Doesn't have to be huge, just a place to make their own and onto the market.
