Government End Outdated Law To Allow Short Term Letting In London

Government End Outdated Law To Allow Short Term Letting In London

New Measures Allow Londoners To Conduct Short Term Letting
Of Homes For Extra Cash

The UK Government have announced that they are set to introduce new measures that will bring to an end outdated rules from the 1970’s that prevented home owners in London from renting out their properties on a short-term basis to visitors.

Communities and Local Government (CLG), Secretary Eric Pickles said that there were almost 5 million overseas visitors to the capital between July and September 2013, and thousands of properties were advertised as being available as holiday lets on travel accommodation websites such as Airbnb.

However, under laws dating back to the 1970’s, Londoners who want to rent out their properties for less than 3 months, technically still have to apply for planning permission from the council, which does not apply anywhere else in the UK.

  • This report has nothing to do with posting adverts in newspapers or putting ‘I Will Buy Your House’ stickers on cars in order to find cheap properties
  • This report is not about buying properties for £1, purchasing under someone else’s name or rent-to-buy or any other insider ‘tricks’ or ‘3 step secrets of the professional  formulas’
  • This report will not show you how to ‘click your fingers’ and ‘make millions overnight’ from property.

Let’s be realistic, that doesn’t happen in real life, otherwise everyone would be doing it!

The techniques described in this report are far better and much smarter than that!

This report will show you in detail how to quickly build up an expert-level of knowledge about your local area (or any area of the UK in which you’d like to buy a house)…

Owning Property Is Better For Financial Security

Mortgage Payments Vs Savings: Property Provides Better Returns Over Traditional Saving Methods

There was a report in the Daily Express last week that said property owners have saved more than others with traditional savings accounts and ISA’s.

The report reckoned that the Bank of England’s record low interest rate has saved property owners almost £20,000 (GBP) over the last six years in inflated mortgage payments. However traditional savers have lost out by almost the same amount, prompting calls for more help for savers and warnings that borrowing could create a new debt crisis.

Bank of England statistics reveal that the record low interest rate of 0.5%, reached 5 years ago today, has been a mixed blessing for the UK.

Interest rates started to tumble back in 2008 and by March 2009 the Bank of England’s base rate had reached 0.5%, promoting cheaper borrowing.

Property owners with a £100,000 Standard Variable Rate (SVR) mortgage could have saved almost £20,000 (GBP), because mortgage payments were around £3,300 (GBP) a year lower than they were in early 2008 before the financial crash ended the previous property boom.

Savers with £100,000 (GBP) in cash ISAs lost around £18,500 (GBP) over the same period.

Tenants Share To Cut Living Costs

Tenants Share To Cut Living Costs

Private Rental Sector Tenants
still struggling to make ends meet

With the amount of would-be tenants looking for shared accommodation is reported to be up by 31% since 2011, suggesting that UK tenants are looking at sharing property with other tenants in order to counter increasing living costs and ensure that the rent is paid, however, Rent Guarantee Insurance is a better idea.

Research by house-share website found that for single tenants, renting property by themselves is not really an affordable option, so many tenants are turning to flat or house sharing in a bid to save cash.

The website recently surveyed its users and discovered that 51% had returned to flat and house sharing after previously renting property in the UK PRS alone or with a partner.

Spareroom tell would-be tenants that huge financial savings can be made by renting a room in a shared rental property, rather than renting the whole property.

The average cost of renting a one-bedroom flat in the majority of the UK, is £12,669 (GBP) per year (including bills), while the cost of renting a room in a shared rental property is just £6,079 (GBP) with bills included, a saving of £6,590 (GBP) per year.

Help-To-Buy Heralded As UK Property Market Saviour

Help-To-Buy Heralded As UK Property Market Saviour

RICS Claim Help-To-Buy Is Reason
For UK Property Market Recovery

The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) have stated that the Government’s Help-To-Buy scheme and other financial initiatives have seen the UK property market turn the corner after the post recession slump.

In its monthly report RICS said property prices are up for a fourth consecutive month as the largest number of property buyers in 4 years return to the market.

The RICS report particularly picked out the West Midlands and the North East, as two areas which had suffered more than most in the UK property market crash, but these areas experienced the biggest increase in property buyer activity during July.

The widespread pick-up in the UK property market has seen residential property prices rise at their fastest rate since the peak of the property market in November 2006.

There is a growing chorus that the Government’s Help-To-Buy scheme, which was introduced in April to provide equity loans for first time buyers of up to 20% towards the cost of a new build property worth up to £600,000 (GBP) is creating a new property bubble.

Thousands Of Affordable Properties

New Affordable Housing Guarantee Funding Is Intended To Deliver Thousands
Of Affordable Properties

On the 24th July 2013, Government ministers announced a multi-million pound boost to build thousands of new and affordable residential properties in the UK.

69 different housing associations and developers will each receive a share of £220 million (GBP) to deliver almost 14,000 new and affordable residential properties outside of the London area.

Work on the new residential properties will be started by March 2015 and will be expected to be completed by 2017.

The move is part of wider government efforts to get Britain building, which will lead to the fastest annual rate of affordable house building for over 2 decades.

The increased funding is part of the expanded £450 million (GBP) Affordable Housing Guarantees which will support up to £3.5 Billion (GBP) in government debt guarantees to deliver thousands of new homes.

Of the almost 14,000 homes this money will help deliver, the majority will be available at an affordable rent with 2,000 of those available to buy through shared ownership.

Housing associations and developers who plan to use the guarantee scheme will now work with the Affordable Housing Finance to finalise the details of the loan funding that will work alongside today’s grant allocations.
