October 2019

As a Shropshire agent, we have been settling into life after the Tenant Fees Act 2019. Having changed many procedures and processes prior to this coming into effect, the adaption has run fairly smoothly. It is great to see many of our local agents being on board and embracing the changes too. There are, however, some agents that are not complying, which is disappointing to see.

As predicted we have seen the forecasted rent rise throughout the region mainly affecting the lower to middle section of the market and, throughout the first half of this year, seen demand outweighing supply, and this is expected to continue for the remainder of 2019.

With the changes the Government have made to date, along with those they intend to make, this is encouraging accidental landlords to sell their property with the uncertainty the future brings.

The question on most people’s minds in this location is the abolishment of the Section 21 Notice and what this will mean for landlords wanting assurance they can obtain vacant possession on their property when needed. A complete reform of the Section 8 Notice will be vital prior to this being rolled out, but with the close working relationship with ARLA Propertymark, I am confident this will be put in place.

We are seeing a great mix of properties coming to the market to rent, from one-bedroom apartments through to large country homes, which is inviting a variety of tenants from young professionals to families and the mature generation.

Finally, with the team we have at Arbon House and the benefits ARLA Propertymark offers to its members, we can be certain we can offer a great and valued service to our clients.
