Although the government is still consulting on the SDLT superlevy on second properties for individuals, the market for the commercial providers in the Private Rented Sector continues to warm up nicely. Investment manager LaSalle has its eyes on a half billion fund, where investors will be looking for good returns. Yes, the provision of rented accommodation, but at what price, and can we be sure that it can be afforded? On the other side of the coin, of course, safe returns for our pensions, which more and more of us will need for longer. An interesting social and political issue which is not really being debated properly.
