Paragon, the UK Buy to let mortgage specialists, have released the results of their first quarterly rental yield survey of 2012
.…and the figures are still promising for UK PRS landlords.

The survey, which quizzes over 500 landlords across the UK, shows that the average rental yield is still holding steady in many regions, with the average currently standing at 6.2% – an increase of 0.3% from Q4 of 2011.

Regions in the North dominated the top spots with the North West, and particularly areas such as Liverpool, reporting average yields of 6.6%.

The North East followed closely with averages of 6.5% and the South West came in third with 6.4%.

Also this week, Mortgages for Business, a rival of Paragon, released their first quarter finding, and understandably the figures were very similar.

Mortgages for Business however also looked into the average rental yields for HMOs and found that at 10.7% the average rental yield is at an all-time high, and especially in cities with large populations of university students.

Such reports are very promising for UK PRS landlords and when coupled with the growth in buy to let mortgage products, (442 buy to let mortgage products are available at the time of writing), despite media reports to the contrary it seems the UK private rental market remains one of the top investment opportunities currently available.
