Landlords with Student Lettings

At both our offices in Southampton and Bournemouth, we are finding that the market for student lettings is a mixed one, with some areas still having a high demand for private accommodation and others already adequately catered for by new council or college built student blocks. Many landlords are therefore now finding their properties, which they had successfully let for many years, standing vacant.

Despite higher tuition fees the number of new students taking up University or College places has risen again this year. However, those landlords having trouble filling their properties are now considering their option of returning to the residential lettings market.

The income is often seen as being less lucrative, but the security of tenure is greater as families and professional tenants tend to remain in properties for longer. This, in turn, results in less maintenance and repair costs.

The Alchemy of Debt Recovery

Debt Recovery Specialist in Dorset

The definition of “alchemy” is supernatural power! I have had the accusation levelled at me that I do in fact possess a gift when it comes to the skill of recovering monies that are owed to my clients. I am not sure that being called a witch is terribly complimentary!

The reality is that providing my client prepares the ground work and, keeps his or her house in good order then my job is made that much easier. Well documented files are a must should it come down to non payment because of a dispute.

That preparation by my client starts at the point of sale...It doesn’t matter whether my client is selling a widget, recruitment services, scaffolding, accountancy, or marketing services, the list is endless. What does matter is that you know your customer / client as intimately as possible.

New Legionella Regulations for Lettings

Expert letting service in Southampton

As anyone dealing in tenanted property will be aware, we have all been inundated with new legislation over the past few years.

We are able to deal with all the changes in law which are about to come into effect, such as the additional checks for Residence Status (Immigration Act 2014) for all tenancy applicants and The Deregulation Bill with simple amendments to our current procedures.

However, the new regulation causing the most upheaval and additional work in our own office is the Health & Safety Executive’s new guidelines on the control of legionella bacteria in water systems. This can cause Legionnaires’ disease which is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.
