Offering a lifeline to landlords

Residential landlords are in need of advice and guidance more than ever before.

With demand for rental properties higher than ever, landlords are not always getting the correct advice to ensure they understand the myriad of regulations involved in renting out a property.

Despite the fact that the new government has recently scrapped plans for a landlords’ register, a huge amount of regulations still govern the private rental sector and it is vital that landlords realise what is involved in renting out a property.

Many landlords are so keen to capitalise on today’s buoyant market that they are neglecting to look into the legal requirements which govern letting a property and this could have disastrous consequences.

More than 50 Acts of Parliament and over 70 sets of regulations govern the private-rented sector and this makes it impossible for landlords to cover all bases. This is why it so crucial that they seek professional advice from a reputable lettings agency which can safeguard them against possible litigation.

One of our recent surveys revealed that over 86 per cent of our clients would recommend our services to landlords.

In today’s market it is more important than ever that landlords safeguard their assets and ensure that they remain compliant with the law.
