Birmingham best buy-to-let area in UK
Data collected by peer-to-peer lending platform LendInvest shows that Birmingham tops the best postcodes for buy-to-let in the UK, with landlords in the area benefiting from the UK’s best rental yields.

Though Birmingham beats London in terms of rental yields, postcodes around north and central London still deliver best overall returns on investment, thanks to capital gains achieved through rising house prices.
