Stoke-on-Trent is the best town in the UK in regards to affordability and rental return, a study by Property Partner has revealed.
Oldham and Liverpool closely followed and the 10 best areas to come a landlord are in Northern regions.
Leeds had the highest yield of all 100 cities and towns surveyed at 6.92%.
Dan Gandesha, founder of Property Partner, said: “What our research reveals is a clear North-South divide in the investment opportunities facing buy-to-let landlords.
“It just goes to show, you shouldn’t always follow the crowd and the right investment could be on your doorstep where there is far less overall demand.”
