Many people who can afford it prefer to invest their money in property, but where in the UK can you see decent returns from buy-to-let mortgages?

While the inflated rental rates of London might make it seem like the ideal place to invest in housing, high property prices in the capital might make it harder to get a decent return on your investment.

Our heat map shows you exactly which postcode areas across the UK offer the best yields on buy-to-let mortgages.

The cities of northern England and Scotland seem to have the best yields, while the rural areas of Wales offer little in the way of financial reward to people taking out buy-to-let mortgages.
