Landlords renovating? The Independent asks Urban's view

URBAN give expert advice in The Independent on Sunday.

Felicity Hannah of The Independent on Sunday gets Adam Male at Urban's view on buy-to-let investors expecting to offset what they lose in tax this year by trading down to cheaper homes.

This year there will be a real shift in how private landlords buy property - especially the types of property they look to secure," says Adam Male, co-founder of the property website "Refurbishment properties have been a less attractive option since purpose built apartments, which demand less time, started springing up in our towns and cities. But I think there will be a rise in landlords looking to get involved in 'fixer-uppers' again."
