Now is the "perfect time"to purchase buy-to-let property, investors have been told.

According to property expert Keshav Thukaram, there are a number of "bargain"homes on the market and they are waiting to be snapped up by private landlords across the UK.

His comments come after his firm,, released its latest Buy-to-Let Index, which shows that there are a high number of tenants looking for somewhere to live on the outskirts of London.

Mr Thukaram suggested that this is the case because many people have opted to leave the capital city in the wake of the economic downturn.

Tenancy agreements have been increasingly common between students and landlords in the last year, it would seem. The index stated that the number of students who are tenants has increased from 1.1 to 5.8 per cent year-on-year.

It was claimed that this has a lot to do with the rising unemployment rate in the UK, which today was revealed to have exceeded 2.26 million.
