LEAMINGTON LANDLORDS  LOSING THOUSANDS OF POUNDS..
  • paragraph

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THEM  ...
    image cannot be displayed

    Over the last year we have worked very closely with a great deal of private landlords and investors in the Leamington and surrounding areas. What has become very apparent is that approx 82% of landlords do not regularly review their rents. The main reasons being 'I did not know I could review my rent', 'I did not know what the rental market was doing in terms of prices' and 'I have a great tenant - I dont see the point'.

    Yes we agree that having a great tenant is important but so is ensuring your investment is working for you.

    To give you an example - one particular portfolio landlord we have worked with approached us with a view to advising her on her current tenancies and the rents they were achieving. Bottom line - we increased the rents across her portfolio, with the tenants blessing, and generated an additional £8000 per year. Our approach to the increases were achieved by working with the tenant, educating them on the market - and also still keeping them slightly below market rents. All tenancies were renewed on fixed term agreements and both landlord and tenant were very happy.

    Please dont fall into the trap of complacency - it will cost you one way or another.

    I offer all landlords and investors free advice and guidance, with over 30 years experience in the industry my local community is important to me and I will do what I can to help you.

    Have a wonderful day and thank you for reading...

      Impressed with their investor evening
      This one is for the team really. I was so impressed with their investor evening and the time and effort they went to in educating us on all the latest regulations and tax changes. It was a real eye opener. I am looking forward to the next event. The fact they dont profit from this either is impressive.
