The UK has a great sporting heritage and some of the world’s most popular sports were invented in the UK. In this article we will take a look at some of the best places to live in the UK if you are a sports fan.



London is an obvious place to start as it is the largest city in the UK, but it also has international quality sports stadia and courses for pretty much every sport you could imagine wanting to see:

·         Cricket – take a trip to the home of UK cricket at Lords, home of the MCC

·         Rugby – just outside London is Twickenham, the home of English Rugby. If you can’t get tickets for Twickenham then you can always watch one of the top teams such as The Harlequins, the Saracens or London Irish.

·         Tennis – Wimbledon, properly known as the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, hosts the Wimbledon tennis championships from 29th June to the 12th July in 2020, where the best tennis players in the world come to compete

Nearly half a million properties could be left unavailable for residents looking to rent in the private rented sector, as more landlords exit the market and move into short-term lets (i.e Airbnb) due to the raft of legislative changes they have been faced with.

Lets look at the scale of the UK’s short-term lets sector and the wider implications on the private rented sector.

Growth in short-term lets

Highlighting the huge growth in the short-term lets sector, the number of active listings on Airbnb in the UK rose by a third (33 per cent) to 223,000 in 2018 from 168,000 in 2017. As to be expected, London has the largest market in the UK, with the number of active listings rising four-fold from 18,000 in 2015 to 77,000 in 2019. Edinburgh has seen growth in short-term lets triple, with 32,000 active listings in the Scottish capital in 2019, up from 11,000 in 2016.

A lot of investors in recent years have been talking a lot about Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and there has certainly been a huge buzz around HMOs and the shared housing industry over the last five years or so. HMOs have been around for a very long time so why are they so great and why are so many people wanting to suddenly start investing in these types of properties? Here are the three key reasons why we feel HMOs are so great. 

Number 1 – Massive Income 

Unlike traditional Buy to Let properties, HMOs have a huge benefit of, when done properly, being able to generate huge amounts of cash from the uplift in rental income by renting out the property out on a room by room basis to individual tenants, opposed to a single occupier or family. This huge uplift in rental income obviously means relatively larger profits for the investor. So why is the income so much larger from an HMO than a single let? Well in an HMO you typically have 5 of 6, sometime more, individual tenants renting a room within the property and having

If you rent out a property, then you really should take out insurance to cover you should something go wrong.

What if your rented property was flooded?  Would you be able to afford to repair the damage and find alternative accommodation for your tenants?  Or what if your tenant stopped paying the rent?  If you rely on your rental income to meet your mortgage repayments, you could end up in a serious financial mess.

If you let a property but just take out standard insurance in your name, there is a very big chance the insurance company will refuse to pay any claim and therefore you will be out of pocket.  You need insurance that is specially designed for landlords.
