The Return to Normal for Landlords?

The Return to Normal for Landlords?

Lettings Market Update | April 2021

It certainly is nice to have more company back in the high street again now we have successfully navigated through another phase of unlocking. It makes a massive difference to see some of the hustle and bustle return and this welcome spell of sunny weather has meant that socialising outside has been a much more pleasant experience than perhaps it could have been!

This last month has really flown past but, as I stop and look back, there are a number of notable positives we have seen as a business which show that there is still reassuringly strong demand in the housing market with confidence returning from our insurance product providers.

The incredible uplift in investor activity following Rishi’s Budget last month has been extremely positive to see. The Government’s actions have no doubt contributed massively to the sustained activity across the housing market.

And I am really excited to announce that our fantastic Rent Protect Pro product has just got even better so now your rent is even protected should a tenant defend a possession claim!

With the inevitable headache looming with the end to the furlough scheme, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Speak to us to find out a little more about how it could help guarantee your income when you need it the most.

This month we also saw the Green Scheme scrapped by the Government, due to a low uptake from homeowners and landlords, so we eagerly await an announcement as to what they plan on replacing it with.

With tenant demand still at an unprecedented high and widespread confidence finally back within the lettings sector, there are plenty of reasons to feel positive as we head into Spring.
