Private Renting set to grow by 400 Ilkley households by 2025 I was having a most interesting chat the other day with an Ilkley landlord when we were looking at a property. As I am sure you are aware, I'm always happy to cast my eye over any potential buy to let purchase in Ilkley, be that you emailing me a Rightmove link, a brochure in the post or even treading the carpet and seeing it together.
