The rental market is a volatile place at the best of times and with the government focusing more and more on this industry in a move to make it fairer and more effective there has been a significant increase in regulations which have had quite an impact on the market. Added to this, the increasing costs associated with buying a home, means that demand for rental properties is remaining buoyant. In this article we will take a look at what predictions property experts are making for 2020 and beyond.

ARLA Propertymark suggest that the majority of letting agents think rent prices will increase in 2020, with demand rising and the number of landlords operating reducing due to the increasing complexity and cost of the new Regulations. This, they predict, will force up rents and reduce choice for tenants.

When renting out a property there can be confusion about what appear to be conflicting rights of Landlords and Tenants. The Tenant has the right to “quiet enjoyment of the property” and the Landlord has the right to access the property for inspections or to make repairs. The ever changing legal landscape for tenancy agreements makes this fine line ever harder to understand and this can lead to tensions between the Landlord and the Tenant. In this article we aim to shed a little light on Landlord access rights which should help avoid those awkward moments and allow Landlords to ensure their investment is being looked after whilst also protecting the right of the Tenant to enjoy their home peacefully.

 

Right of access

As a Landlord you have the right to enter your property for things such as:

 

·         Periodic inspections

·         Make repairs as required

·         Viewings for prospective tenants at the end of a tenancy

The UK has a great sporting heritage and some of the world’s most popular sports were invented in the UK. In this article we will take a look at some of the best places to live in the UK if you are a sports fan.

 

London

London is an obvious place to start as it is the largest city in the UK, but it also has international quality sports stadia and courses for pretty much every sport you could imagine wanting to see:

·         Cricket – take a trip to the home of UK cricket at Lords, home of the MCC

·         Rugby – just outside London is Twickenham, the home of English Rugby. If you can’t get tickets for Twickenham then you can always watch one of the top teams such as The Harlequins, the Saracens or London Irish.

·         Tennis – Wimbledon, properly known as the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, hosts the Wimbledon tennis championships from 29th June to the 12th July in 2020, where the best tennis players in the world come to compete

·         Football – For Football fans, London has lots to offer, with clubs like Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers there is lots for every day football, but London is also the home of Wembley Stadium which is where the national team play.

Nearly half a million properties could be left unavailable for residents looking to rent in the private rented sector, as more landlords exit the market and move into short-term lets (i.e Airbnb) due to the raft of legislative changes they have been faced with.

Lets look at the scale of the UK’s short-term lets sector and the wider implications on the private rented sector.

Growth in short-term lets

Highlighting the huge growth in the short-term lets sector, the number of active listings on Airbnb in the UK rose by a third (33 per cent) to 223,000 in 2018 from 168,000 in 2017. As to be expected, London has the largest market in the UK, with the number of active listings rising four-fold from 18,000 in 2015 to 77,000 in 2019. Edinburgh has seen growth in short-term lets triple, with 32,000 active listings in the Scottish capital in 2019, up from 11,000 in 2016.
