March 2018

It’s been an interesting couple of years for the private rented sector. We have seen legal, tax and political changes, that had the potential to shatter the status quo, with still more to come.

In 2016 the government introduced an additional rate of Stamp Duty Land Tax for second home owners, with the intention of cooling the buy to let demand. The following year saw changes to Section 24 of the Finance Act starting to bite, with Landlords no longer being able to deduct all of their finance costs from their property income. Brexit, impending Tenant Fee ban, falling rents, together with other deterrents are making Landlords evaluate their position and consider selling up.  

Since the start of this year, supply of letting properties has decreased and tenant demand is starting to creep up. We are again seeing multiple competing offers from tenants, which will likely result in higher rents achieved by landlords. Those landlords who can rely on their agent providing timely and accurate advice in a professional manner will benefit the most.

Maintaining and increasing professional standards is now more important than ever, and ARLA Propertymark are again leading the way. We have seen a huge increase in brand awareness with more and more people asking if an agent is Propertymark protected. Landlords who have made the decision to stay in the market are recognising the importance of choosing the right agent to guide them through the rough waters of imminent changes.
