Forty per cent of UK landlords are women
The number of female buy to let investors is on the rise, with two in five UK landlords now women, according to new research by Simple Landlords.
40 per cent of UK landlords are now female, with the majority of those using rental property as a means of supplementing their monthly income from other sources. In comparison, just 17 per cent of SME owners are women, suggesting that property is taking steps towards gender equality before other sectors.
The research is featured in a new Women in Property Report, with real life examples and practical advice for female landlords from the Female Property Alliance.
