Are you embarrassed?

Tuesday, 13th September, 2016

Some 21 per cent of buy to let investors are too embarrassed to admit what they do.

That is the result of a National Landlords Association poll of almost 800 residential property investors.

Across the UK, more landlords in the East of England and the East Midlands said they were embarrassed to admit it compared to any other region (29 per cent and 28 per cent respectively).  At the other end of the scale, the English regions with the fewest embarrassed landlords were the South East and Yorkshire and Humber (18 Per cent)

Just 13 per cent of landlords in Scotland said they had been too embarrassed to admit it before.

NLA chief executive Richard Lambert says no matter how many landlords exist, the apparent stigma continues.

"It's the minority of rogues and criminal landlords that make the headlines, and this has a negative impact on everyone else.  The majority of landlords are hardworking individuals who put their own money into providing homes for others, and they should not be ashamed to say so" he says.
