Are Your Rental Properties Ready For Christmas?

Are Your Rental Properties Ready For Christmas?

Landlords Urged To Ensure Rental Properties Remain Occupied over Christmas Holidays

This is the time of year when most amateur property investors and landlords start to wind down ready to enjoy the festive session, whilst the more professional property investors and portfolio landlords start planning their goal setting for 2015.

However, there is one thing that landlords need to make sure of over the festive holidays – Will their rental properties be occupied for the whole of Christmas and New Year?

If tenants are going to be away over the Christmas period then they need to make sure that the landlord or their letting agent is aware, because the majority of rental property problems happen during the winter months, with the highest concentration of issues recorded over the Christmas and New Year holidays, especially if the tenants decide turn off the central heating in order to save money while they are away.

Bigger problems can also occur if the tenant decides to notify the whole world on social media sites that they are going away on holiday or to visit family and their rental properties will be empty!

The last thing landlords need is a call from your tenants or their neighbours because they think your rented property has been burgled, so any broken doors or windows will need repairing quickly, the same goes for tackling burst pipes!

Tenants Fighting Each Other Over Rental Properties As Supply Drops And Demand Increases

Tenants Fighting Each Other Over Rental Properties
As Supply Drops And Demand Increases

Tenants looking to rent in the UK’s private rented sector face competition from other would be tenants as demand increases and supply contracts, according the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA).

ARLA’s latest report has discovered that 68% of landlords surveyed reported more interested tenants than available rental properties.

This is the largest successive increase in tenant demand in the last 12 months, with tenant demand figures up from 46% in Q3 2013, 54% in Q1 2014, 59% in Q2 2014; meaning an increase of 9% between the second and third quarters of the year to date.

The tenant demand data is reinforced by the fact that supply of suitable rental properties in the private rental sector has decreased in the last quarter, with ARLA letting agent members recording a 6% drop in the average number of managed Buy To Let properties on their books, down from 143 to 135 per member agency.

Landlord Mortgages Are Hard To Get say RLA

Landlord Mortgages Are Hard To Get say RLA

According to a recent survey by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA), almost half of their landlord members have encountered difficulty when trying to obtain a buy-to-let or landlord mortgage.

141 RLA members were asked how easy they had found it to access a buy-to-let mortgage,

  • 21% said they were unable to obtain a buy-to-let mortgage
  • 24% said they found it very difficult
  • 22% had to shop around
  • 14% found it easy to get a mortgage
  • 17% said they found it fairly straightforward

The RLA said that the first major challenge for the new housing minister Mark Prisk will be to persuade banks to unlock the financial support needed by private landlords to grow the residential lettings sector at a time when more homes are needed.

RLA chairman Alan Ward said: “We welcome the Government’s renewed commitment and interest in the opportunities that the private rented sector can play in meeting the country’s housing needs. However, this will not happen without financing from the banks. It is time that the blame game for the difficulties in accessing finance between Government and the banks came to the end for the sake of those desperate for a roof over their heads.”

The release of the RLA data coincides with news that the UK mortgage market has endured its third worst August for almost two decades.

The news comes from e.surv, which are part of the LSL property group, who have made the gloomy forecast based on its own activity and reckons to be correct to within a near margin of official statistics which will be issued later in the month.

The firm is predicting that house purchase loans in August fell 8% from August 2011, down from 53,040 approvals to 48,913 – making last month the third worst August for almost 20 years.

Whilst last month’s figure was up from July’s 47,312, e-surv said this shouldn’t be taken as a sign of improving market conditions, saying that July was weak by historic standards with purchase approvals 5% lower than July 2011.

The firm said tightening credit conditions and the effects of the double-dip recession were moving the UK mortgage market back towards 2010 levels and the annual contraction in landlord mortgages is the result of a sharp fall in lending to borrowers with deposits of less than 15%.

The average LTV on a property purchase loan has now fallen below 60% for the last three months, reversing a seven-month period where it was at least 60%.
 
Richard Sexton, business development director of e.surv, said: “Much of the progress the mortgage market has made since summer 2011 has been unravelled by the double-dip recession. Lending volumes – particularly to first-time buyers – are slipping back towards the dismal levels we last saw in 2010 and early 2011. This is largely thanks to a fall in the number of high loan-to-value mortgages banks are willing to grant.  Credit conditions for banks have become painfully tight, and they’ve responded by toughening criteria on mortgages aimed at borrowers with small deposits. The distraction of the Olympics, the awful weather and holiday season could also all be reasonably cited as potential contributory factors.”
 
e.surv said August was the third consecutive month where lending has fallen on an annual basis, and the biggest year-on-year fall for 15 months since 1993, when the Bank of England’s records begin, only 2008 and 2010 have seen lower lending levels during August.

e.surv’s analysis found that more landlords have stepped in to fill the vacuum left by first-time buyers at the bottom of the market. Despite overall purchase approvals falling 8% year-on-year, approvals on property worth less than £125,000 fell by only 4% as landlord mortgages were used to purchase property that was out of reach of first-time buyers.
 
Sexton said: “With rents pushed up to record levels, landlords are piling in to cheap property. Tight mortgage lending conditions are a virtuous circle for landlords and a vicious one for first-time buyers. The fewer first-time buyers there are, the cheaper property becomes for landlords, and the more expensive rents get. We expect landlords to continue to represent a disproportionate share of the buying market in the medium term. Would-be buyers will hope the Government’s Funding for Lending scheme can help improve the flow of credit in the near future.”
 
There was some positive news in August. On a month-on-month basis, house purchase loans rose 3% from 47,312 in July.

But this shouldn’t be taken as sign that market conditions are set to improve. July was weak by historic standards – purchase approvals were 5% lower than July 2011 – and high LTV lending levels were the same as in August.

One HUGE barrier that professional property investors get asked to help people with time after time…

The ONE thing that sabotages so many smart, hard working people’s investing successes…

Where even beginner level investors get SO CLOSE to success they almost start spending the profits.

Yet they fail…

And the ONE thing that causes much frustration and damages confidence…

The ONE thing that, when overcome, doesn’t guarantee success, but makes it so much more within your immediate reach.

The ONE thing that is far more important than knowledge, training, education and even experience in many cases.

[Proof: I’ve seen total beginners leverage this ONE thing & raise 500K without knowing what to do with it!]

The ONE thing that you may need to ditch are the friends who have been constantly holding you back…

This ONE thing is your Network.

Your go-to experts that YOU Leverage.

Not your current friends who don’t want you to be successful.

I mean think about it. Imagine if you had all the answers you need just an email or phone call away. Imagine if you had expert level mentorship, guidance and availability. Imagine what you could achieve and the time you could save leveraging other people.

This is what the most successful people do, at the very highest level. Peter Jones calls Philip Green. The government call upon Alan Sugar. Richard Branson takes counsel from Nelson Mandela.

Napoleon Hill calls it a ‘Mastermind Alliance’ in the worldwide classic ‘Think and Grow Rich.’

So, we have arranged a private invitation for you.

Earlier this year 2 of the highest profile professional Property Investors  invited a select few people, including us, to apply to be part of a multi-millionaire network.

A network that unless they had been to their 3 day, three thousand pound flagship Property Masterclass…They never would have known about.

Well they have asked us to invite our readership to the re-opening of this unique invitation,

for *2 days only* on Thursday, 1st December 2011 or Thursday, 8th December 2011

Warning: they’re only looking for serious people who want to be part of a unique, underground mastermind alliance group.

 VIP JV Angel Network Day

People who want serious, life changing results, and are ready NOW.

This is not for everyone, it is application only. VIP JV Angel Network Day

Please don’t waste your time if you’re dipping in or just ‘researching…’

There you will have the chance to apply, and be picked to be invited personally to their head offices to meet current group members, discuss some hidden opportunities we’ve found in the current market and leverage professionals, ex estate agents, finance experts and students who are rapidly becoming experts.

 VIP JV Angel Network Day

If you are successful, or you want to be badly enough, you will be meeting them soon!

Many thanks for taking the time to read this important message
