MCL Property has been asked to present at the Nottingham Landlords Association meeting at the end of June.
We will be using his wealth of experience and knowledge to disuss Room by Room Lettings, HMOs and Bedsits. Specifically on how to start and manage them effectively and maximise your profit.
We will them talk about the current legislative changes and how this will effect current landlords and the market going forward.
It is sure to be an interesting and informative talk.
Over the last few months numerous announcements of cuts and spending reviews have led to a lot of people being cautious about where to set up home next.
What we are seeing is a massive increase in demand for good quality accomodation, namely rooms; bedits and flats.
As widely reported, landlords and landlords organisations were extremely unhappy at the changes which were brought in to the planning laws on 6 April this year by the last government.
Suspected to have been introduced largely because of problems in one minister’s constituency with ‘studentification’, Labour’s new rules provided a blanket obligation on all landlords of new HMOs to obtain planning permission.
Tenants are increasingly in difficulties after rents rose at their steepest rate for two years. Landlords hiked rents in August by 1.4%, according to LSL Property Services. The rise means rents are the highest they have been since September 2008.
Unsurprisingly, LSL – parent company of Your Move and Reeds Rains – reported in its latest buy-to-let index that tenant arrears jumped 25% to reach £266m, or 11% of all UK rents – up 25% from July, with tenants in the north-east hardest hit.
The number of tenants seeking rental properties has reached an eight-year high, according to the Association of Residential Lettings Agents.
Ian Potter, operations director of ARLA, said: “The market has bounced back in a way that no one could have predicted, to levels of demand that have not been seen since the last century.
