Research released by the Mistoria Group, a property and management organisation, has revealed that a third of investors specialising in student property intend to continue expanding their portfolios.

Despite the recent changes to stamp duty, which has caused a slow-down in the general buy-to-let market, according to the research there is no let-up in the student let sector!

Whilst many student landlords joined the rush in the first quarter of the year to beat the stamp duty rise (35%), a further 43% plan to acquire between two and three further properties in the next 18 months – evidently the 3% additional levy isn’t putting them off making further purchases!

One-in-ten student landlords believe that their HMOs will ensure that they are able to work through the new tax legislation, and help ensure that their investments remain profitable, whilst 50% still firmly believe that no other investment offers the same level of return on investment as student property.
