UK Private Rental Sector Landlords Fear Upcoming General Election

UK Private Rental Sector Landlords Fear Upcoming General Election

UK Private Rental Sector Landlords Fear Upcoming General Election

With The UK’s next General Election less than 80 days away it is feared by some economists that many UK private rental sector (PRS) landlords will choose not to expand rental property portfolios this year.

Fluctuations in regional property prices and housing legislation changes have already hit the UK property market, and now the electioneering hype being spouted by MP’s from all political parties is doing very little to encourage landlords to increase their rental property portfolios.

Already there is a great deal of talk and speculation about the possible introduction of rent controls and the threat of increased taxes for landlords as the current Government and opposition MP’s attempt to leverage the strength of the UK’s buy to let property market.

More Calls For Smoke Alarms To Be Compulsory

More Calls For Smoke Alarms To Be Compulsory

Fire Service Calls For 2013
Smoke Alarm Law To Be Enacted

The Government passed a law back in 2013 requiring private rental sector (PRS) landlords to provide smoke alarms in all UK rental properties.

However, this new bill is still under public consultation and as yet it has not been brought into force and some local authorities claim that this is putting tenant’s lives at risk.

Now there are further calls from the fire service for more new laws to be introduced to make sure all landlords, both social and private sector, install smoke alarms in all rented properties.

Mandatory smoke alarms are among the key issues to be discussed at the Local Government Association’s (LGA) annual fire safety conference due to be held in Gateshead next month 10th – 11th March 2015.

The call for UK landlords to install smoke alarms in rental properties forms a central part of the LGA’s key report ‘The Fire and Rescue Service: Making our Nation Safer’, which was launched on Saturday 7th February 2015.

The report highlights a series of proposals on how UK fire services can improve fire safety for tenants, including calls for electrical wiring in rented properties to be inspected annually, the same way UK PRS landlords are obliged to obtain gas safety certificates (CP12’s) every year.

New Right To Rent Immigration Legislation Now In Force

New Right To Rent Immigration Legislation Now In Force

New Immigration Legislation Dictates That Landlords Can Only
Let To Tenants Who Have The Right To Rent

As of today, 1st December 2014, new legislation has come into force in Birmingham, Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley and Wolverhampton. The requirement will come in to force in those areas dictating that all UK private rented sector landlords must only let properties to immigrants that have the right to rent property in the UK and the landlords of the West Midlands are the legislative guinea pigs.

The introduction of the Right To Rent law has particular importance to UK PRS landlords who house foreign nationals or operate Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO’s or multi-let properties) and those landlords using Rent 2 Rent (R2R) strategies.

Under the Immigration Bill (2014) private rented sector landlords are responsible for checking the immigration status of all potential tenants, with fines of up to £3000 (GBP) for landlords who fail to conduct this procedure. Employers will also face “more substantial” fines for employing illegal immigrants.

Insurance Statistics Prove Students Are The Best Tenants

Insurance Statistics Prove Students Are The Best Tenants

Insurance Statistics Prove Students Are The Best Tenants

A survey carried out by the National Landlords Association (NLA) in 2013 found that students are some of the best tenant types housed in the PRS as they are less likely to miss rent and student properties tend to offer better returns.

Now, fresh research by Total Landlord Insurance in 2014 also shows that students are the most reliable tenants in the private rented sector (PRS) as only 9.6% of insurance claims come from student properties, the second lowest of any tenant group, so there may be something to the claims after all, who would have thought?

The average insurance claim made by the landlord of a student property was £2,090.18 (GBP) in 2013, compared to £6,072.97 (GBP) for a typical residential property housing tenants claiming state benefits.

Record University Applications Are Good News For Student Property Investors

Record University Applications Are Good News For Student Property Investors

Record University Applications Are Good News
For Student Property Investors

 Current and prospective student property investors have been delighted to see university applications hit record levels. According to a report from UCAS, this year saw a 4% increase in the number of applications, signalling a likely increase in demand for student property.

The increase in applications – which forms part of a continuing upward trend – comes in spite of the fact that there were fewer 18 year olds amongst the UK population this year. The rise shows that more and more people are looking towards higher education after leaving school and college. By the deadline on January 15th, UCAS had received applications from roughly 580,000 18 year olds. This represents approximately 35% of all 18 year olds in the UK.

Student numbers took a serious hit a few years ago, after a high-profile hike which saw tuition fees almost tripled. However, since that time student numbers have been gradually increasing again and have now essentially recovered from the blow.

The higher education sector has enjoyed something of a rebirth as a result, and university-level qualifications remain highly desirable.

According to Mary Curnock Cook, chief executive of UCAS, there is “a remarkably persistent growth in demand for higher education” which is illustrated by these recent figures. She went on to display that the increased demand could be seen universally. It applies to applications for all institutions, and from students of all backgrounds and groups. Demand was also increasing regardless of tuition fee differences, suggesting that this factor is now not hindering university applications in the way it did immediately following the hike.
