Most new landlords look to buy their first property in a town they know. Usually that means where they live or perhaps somewhere they went to university or used to reside.
But if your local area is not ideal for buy-to-let, you might wish to look to those towns and cities that generally produce the best income for landlords.
HSBC’s annual survey found that the city of Manchester was Britain’s buy-to-let hotspot. This was followed by Kingston-upon-Hull and Blackpool.
