    Default BTL = Boomed

    The survey comes the day after a report for the Association of Residential Letting Agents said rents in the private rented sector would rise significantly in the short term.

    In the report, Professor Michael Ball, of Reading University, predicted that rents would rise by 10% to 15% in both 2008 and 2009.

    A nice little earner there.

    But with rental yields still not as high as the savings rates offered by banks (which similarly have also gone up since the crunch) and house prices still with another 30 to 40% to fall, why would anyone bother?

    Is its cause its my pension, init?
