‘Yield’ is a term used to describe the return on the cash invested into an asset or other investment vehicle – in this case, a rental property – and is expressed as a percentage.

Working out your buy-to-let rate of return and yield

  1. Your gross yield is your return on investment before deductions such as taxes and expenses, whilst your net yield is your annual return after such expenses are taken into account.
  2. Your ‘real’ yield is your net return on investment plus capital appreciation, giving a truer indication of the investment’s performance.
  3. Finally, your true rate on return is your annual yield against the total amount of capital invested thus far – this includes purchasing costs, running costs and the total amount of Buy to Let mortgage repayments made.
