The BondMason Listed Landlord Index (BLLI) showed a small reduction of 0.5% in June, but listed landlords have still achieved a positive annual performance with an increase over the past 12 months of +3.8%.
The BondMason Listed Landlord Index (BLLI) also continued to outperform the BondMason Private Landlord Index (BPLI) over the same period, which saw an annual increase of 1.8%, indicating more subdued returns for private landlords as compared to listed landlords.
A slight increase in UK property prices in the month was reflected in a small rise in the BondMason Private Landlord Index (BPLI); which rose +0.3% for the month of June; and +1.8% over the past 12 months, following a fall last month.
Comparably, both indices have changed as follows:
- BondMason Listed Landlord Index: last 12 months: +3.8%; in month -0.5%
- BondMason Private Landlord Index: last 12 months: +1.8%; in month +0.3%
In response to this month’s analysis, Stephen Findlay, CEO of BondMason said, “The uncertainty in the current UK economic climate has continued to weigh on the sector. Whilst private landlords have seen a small increase this month, we expect further instability to be an ongoing factor for the housing market in the coming months, but the longer term outlook is likely to remain positive driven by UK demographic trends.”
