London market comes off the boil

  The RICS Residential Market Survey for September 2014 reports a more balanced picture nationally, as the London market comes off the boil. The rental market remains firm due to strong demand and tight supply. The September RICS Residential Market Survey indicates fading, albeit still robust, price momentum at the headline level. This comes on the back of a more balanced demand picture, in part related to less buoyant expectations of future price rises. Crucially however, the supply trend remains more or less flat with no indication of a pick up in new vendor instructions. London Price Balance The London price balance turned slightly negative in September for the first time since the beginning of January 2011, ending the longest continuous period of price growth that the RICS survey has recorded for the capital. Expectations for price growth over the coming three months remain positive with only surveyors in the London market expecting to see...

Why Invest in Central Europe?

For many UK based property investors, buying abroad means two things rather than one. The location of the property is half of the reason many of us choose to invest overseas. The second, of course, is the expected return for the investment. In many cases, the decision to invest is made when the two elements combine. Put another way, many British investors opt for a second home in the sun which provides a bolt-hole and a growth opportunity

Landlords: To Furnish or Not to Furnish?

As a new landlord, it can be tempting to leave properties void of furniture, fixtures and fittings to avoid letting properties furnished with substandard furniture. Since 1988 when the Furnishings and Fittings Regulations came into effect, even experienced landlords can now be reluctant to provide furnished properties. However, when you consider that a furnished property can let on average for over £50 a month more than an unfurnished one, it is easy to see why it might be worth putting in some time, effort and investment into furnishings to reap the rewards in the long term. Money Matters Before you can start considering changing your letting status to ‘furnished’ you need to make sure that you have the financial funds to back it up as well as the time and man power to practically ensure the furnishing gets done. Get some quotes from a range of different suppliers and work...

What is Landlord Insurance For?

It’s compulsory in many places for landlords to hold landlord insurance (also sometimes referred to as buy-to-let insurance), which is a specific type of cover for those who are renting out their property. It’s something that can prove to be very important indeed, with many people spending a good deal of time researching it to make sure that they have a helping hand should the worst happen. Here’s what it’s all about: Buildings Cover The main thing that this type of insurance covers, is the building and structure itself. There are many potential hazards that could leave a landlord very much out of pocket, ranging from fire risks, to subsidence to extremely rare occurrences such as terrorism. These are all things that can be insured against with one of these policies. Fire in particular is something that all homeowners must be aware of as it can be prevented, but then...

The Benefits of Home Staging for Landlords

    Everyone knows that home staging is an invaluable tool for property sellers. Ensuring that your home looks clean, tidy and welcoming is a sure-fire way to attract the attention of potential buyers, and staging a home properly has been shown to increase the value of a property by up to 20%. However, property staging is not just a valuable tool for sellers. This process can also be enormously beneficial for landlords who are looking for new tenants and need some help in showing off the value of their properties. Attracting New Tenants To get prospective new tenants through the door, you will need to advertise your property. It’s a well-known fact that properties with bad photos, or no photos at all, are less likely to be looked at than others. The first benefit you will see from staging your rental property is that you will be able to take perfect pics of...

The Advantages of Renting Serviced Vs Conventional Commercial Property

The differences between conventional commercial properties and serviced commercial properties are quite simple. The former refers to a straightforward commercial lease, by which a company obtains sole rental use of the property. The latter refers to lease agreement in which a company rents a commercial space that is provided along with extra amenities, such as secretarial or postage services. Serviced commercial properties are usually (but not always) a part of a larger commercial complex, such as an office block.

Top Tips for Investing by the Sea

There’s probably not a British person alive who doesn’t look back with fondness on happy childhood days spent playing at the seaside. In fact, it’s almost certain that this sense of nostalgia has something to do with the popularity of seaside holidays in the UK, where every year hundreds of thousands of Brits will forgo a foreign excursion. In favour of a more traditional vacation in places such as Blackpool and Southend, whose popularity soared with the advent of ‘pleasure palaces’ in the Victorian era.

Calls for quicker evictions to help landlords and good reliable tenants

A swifter and more streamlined eviction process in the buy to let sector would encourage more landlords to enter the market and provide a greater choice of properties for reliable tenants looking for private rental accommodation, says Landlord Assist. The tenant eviction and rent recovery is backing calls for fast-track evictions amid speculations that the Government is planning to put measures in place to speed up the eviction process for private landlords following concerns that pressures on the courts are leading to lengthy delays. It is understood that landlords and some housing charities have been asked to attend a government working group to discuss proposals and possible options to speed up the eviction process for private landlords. For many landlords launching eviction proceedings against troublesome tenants can result in them going months without receiving any rent. Stories of possession claims taking between six and 12 months from start to finish...

Extortionate court fee increases will impact landlords

Landlord Action has lambasted Government plans to increase court fees as “extortionate”.  The planned changes will take effect from 22nd April 2014, where fees for possession claims will see one of the largest increases at 60%, and could spark a stampede of possession cases in the next two weeks from landlords trying to beat the rises.   Currently the application for possession, which is used after service of a section 8 notice, costs £175, the same as an accelerated possession claim used after service of a section 21 notice. From 22nd April, this will increase to £280. The possession claim online (PCOL) service which can only be used after a section 8 notice on rent arrears grounds, currently has a substantially discounted fee of £100. This will rise by 150% to £250, making the discount for using the online system far less appealing. The Government has stated “the benefits brought...

Tenants warned about rent arrears in run-up to Christmas

The impact of tenants falling into arrears at Christmas time should not be underestimated, as it can also directly affect a landlord’s ability to maintain their mortgage payments too. With many landlords relying on a tenant’s rent to supplement their monthly income it is clear that some would be unable to pay the mortgage on their property in the event that the tenant missed a payment of rent.

Rental market set to become more tenant-friendly?

Success of Help to Buy could help to stabilise the highest rents. Landlord Assist says demand for the Government’s flagship Help to Buy Scheme coupled with an expected rise in interest rates could be the catalyst for the buy-to-let sector becoming more tenant-friendly. For the past few years the private rented sector has sustained a significant growth period caused by huge volumes of people opting to rent rather than buy because of difficulties in obtaining suitable finance for lenders.
