Title: Any private landlords on here?
Post by: Chubbs on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 17:34:06
Could you make yourselves known if you are and may have any available properties in the near future.

Trying to avoid the hassle with letting agents if possible.

Thanks

What hassle are you trying to avoid exactly? You could ask lettings agents what properties they have on an introductory deal with the landlord i.e. They find the tenant and then the landlord takes over.

If the issue is tenant fees, there has been fairly recent legislation on this - lots of info is freely available on the net.

I manage my own properties (rather than using an agent) and you still have to comply with he applicable 'red tape' such as the law on right to rent checks, tenancy deposits and Deregulation Act information etc.

Thanks, rending is Alien to me. I've owned for the last 10 years. With the current pandemic, i want to see what happens to the market over the next 6-12 months before buying again. Again, if this is a wrong move, someone  tell me.

I just though cutting out the middle man might be easier and possibly cheaper.

Of course, no one really knows what will happen and itís all a load of guesswork.  Many commentators take the view that house prices will suffer by the end of the year.

Ultimately, the decision whether or not to buy now depends on your circumstances. If you intend to stay put for a number of years, you may well ride out any issues in the short to medium term.

I heard recently that prices took around 7 years to recover after 2008.  This suggests you may have to stay put for a similar length of time.
