The top of the market?
Private rents have reduced
for the third month in a row, indicating the possible effect of
more availability of funds for private home purchase.
LSL property services have reported
that in some parts of the country (especially the South East, other
than London) rents have fallen for the third month.
The explanation given is that it is
easier for private home purchases as the gradual relaxation on
credit continues. (Though this will tighten up).
However it is not all doom and gloom
for landlords with rents increasing in some other parts of the
country and in London (where the average rent exceeds £1,000 pcm).
Overall rents are still higher than this time last year.
It is probable that the increased
wages in the South East mean that property is becoming accessible,
whilst the relative poverty due to the North-South divide meaning
that mortgages in the North are still harder to obtain.
With a possible reduction in rent
looming landlords should ensure that they keep costs down to a
minimum commensurate with receiving quality and one aspect where
saving can be made is landlord insurance where the cheap rates
available on our website can result in savings of more than 50%
