Purchasing BTL property as an investment

A recent survey conducted for Direct Line for Business, the small business insurer identified that amongst a sample of 829 UK adults with a pension (aged between  45-64) there was likely to be an increase in ‘silver landlords’ when pension regulations change in April 2015.
Their findings showed that 32% of this age group would consider using some or all of their pensions to purchase property.

Purchasing Buy-to-let property as an investment is clearly now seen as a preferred way to invest an amount of your pension pot in properties to produce a regular income.

With The House Crowd finding that more and more investors reflect these results with the possibility to make an investment (from £1000) across a number of properties thus building up a property portfolio with the security of bricks and mortar (cited as 23%).

Will you be looking at investing some of your pension pot in properties when the pension regulations change in April?
