Here at lettingaproperty.com we echo what the government announced earlier in the month – a better deal for tenants. Surging house prices, the inability to save for a deposit and the lack of suitable property stock will no doubt continue to contribute to ‘generation rent’, and with job insecurity also playing a part in the […]
It’s been a busy week for the property market. Firstly, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) issued survey findings which suggest that rental prices could rise faster than house prices because of a tougher tax regime, and on Tuesday, the hotly-anticipated housing White Paper was released. These two announcements alone have seen the press dedicate many […]
A recent survey by the charity Citizens Advice has said that families who rent would like longer tenancies to give them greater security and peace of mind. Although initial tenancy agreements are often around the six-month period, 59% of those surveyed by the charity said that this wasn’t long enough and they feared being asked […]
Research from The Commons has, this week, concluded that those in their 70s are the only generation who can currently afford to invest in properties without undue financial pressure. Whilst we don’t quite agree with these findings, we acknowledge that a proportion of the so-called ‘grandparent generation’ may be in a stronger financial position to […]
It could be a tough year for the residential property market. But let’s face it, with Brexit, Donald Trump now in the White House, a tougher tax regime, rising inflation and potential interest rate rises in the offing, anything could happen. One thing is certain, however, as Britain enters a new economic era under Theresa […]
For generations, the maxim has been: put your money in property and you won’t go far wrong. And that surely must be a recommended course of action for anyone still wondering about a New Year resolution. Admittedly, the prospect of new mortgage regulations, a reduction in tax relief and stamp duty on additional homes, together […]
Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a well deserved break over the holidays? However, as they say “There is no rest for the wicked”. I am not implying that all landlords are wicked (although that may be the view of our current Government). Sorry, I couldn’t resist! So, it’s a new year and I’m pleased to […]
It’s almost the start of a new year and whether you’re a first-time property investor or wish to add to your portfolio, understanding your end game is an important factor in deciding the next best move for your money. And whether that end result is to become asset rich, to make a monthly profit or […]
New survey results from a national online lettings agency suggests that residential property landlords fear a double hit from Section 24 and the proposed changes to tax relief – not only reducing their overall rental profits but also pushing many of them unknowingly into a higher tax bracket. Coupled with the recent introduction of an additional 3% increase in stamp duty on […]
Immigration Enforcement, a Home Office department, published new guidance on the 1st December 2016 about ending a tenancy if you know or have reasonable cause to believe that someone living in your rented property in England is not allowed to rent due to their immigration status (‘disqualified from renting’). Background to Right to Rent Checks You may […]
