As we approach the end of the month, Halloween is just around the corner and although trick or treating may be off the cards for you this year, it hasn't stopped people getting creative with the fronts of their houses. We've seen some spooky sights as we've searched London to bring you some of the top yields in the capital this month. Check out our yield map for yourself here.
Seven Sisters 4.4%
Sat in the borough of Haringey, in North London lies Seven Sisters. With such fantastic transport links, it's no wonder this is a prime location that has grown and shown potential as an area to invest in for several years now. Benefiting from the Overground and the Victoria Line; which can get you to Soho in just 6 stops. The indoor market next to Seven Sisters tube station, although currently closed, is a popular spot for locals and tourists to find everything from food to beauty products.
Streatham is located in the southern borough of Lambeth but with parts of West Streatham crossing over into Wandsworth. Streatham is serviced by the overground but dependent on where exactly you live in Streatham, Tooting, Balham and Brixton tube stations can be easily accessed. Streatham has been a popular buy-to-let area for several years now thanks to the transport links that can get you to London Victoria and London Bridge in less than half an hour. The area is perfect for families looking to buy in the area with beautiful Victorian properties, several good state schools, large supermarkets and plenty of open parks.

Forest Gate 4.6%
will (eventually) benefit from Crossrail
and make getting from A to B even faster than it already is. While we wait for the grand opening, the area has gone through a staged regeneration, firstly gaining attention with the 2012 Olympics, bringing tourists and developers to Stratford and outer areas such as Forest Gate. Forest Gate has continued to be a prime location for investors as property prices are still relatively affordable and strong yields are possible in the area. Forest Gate also offers a string of high performing schools, ideal if you’re thinking of starting a family but don't want to move too far out of London.

Hayes is another area set to benefit once Crossrail opens, but, until that happens, the area has gained its popularity due to its schools, quiet streets, parking and lower than average monthly rental costs for London; plus once we are able to move freely again the proximity to Heathrow. There are plenty of Victorian Terraced houses around Barra Hall Park with industrial buildings being converted into flats to match the demand for the central areas.
