What is Rental Yield?
The definition of rental yield or property yield is the return you make – or expect to make – on a property you either own or are thinking about purchasing. Property investors and landlords use rental yield to measure the value of their investments as they want to know the return on their capital outlay.
How to Calculate Rental Yield for UK Properties
To work out rental yield you apply this simple rental yield formula:
Rental yield = (Monthly rental income x 12) ÷ Property value
We’ve broken down how you use this formula to calculate rental yield below:
- Take the monthly rental income amount or expected rental income and multiply it by 12
- Divide it by the property’s purchase price or current market value
- Multiply this figure by 100 to get the percentage
- Your monthly rental income is: £1,300
- Your annual rental income is: £1,300 x 12 = £15,600
- You purchased the property for: £250,000
- Your rental yield is: (£15,600 ÷ £250,000) x 100 = 6.24%
