New research by an online property lending and investment company reveals that those towns which were strongest in voting ‘Leave’ in the EU referendum appear to be amongst the best for would-be investors.
Data from LendInvest says that only two of the top 20 local authority districts for rental yield voted to remain in the EU - Manchester and Liverpool.
The others were firmly Leave, with top yields being achieved in Burnley, Blackpool, Pendle, Blackburn, Salford, Knowsley and Barrow-in-Furness amongst others.
In contrast, only two of the top 20 districts for capital gains - Barking & Dagenham and Spelthorne in Surrey - voted in favour of Brexit.
The other big capital gain locations such as City of London, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Brent, Lambeth, Ealing and Kensington & Chelsea amongst others, were all firmly Remain.
