Letting Your Property During A Recession

It is an exceptionally difficult time at the moment, with the economy getting worse and stories of doom and gloom appearing every time you look at a newspaper or turn on your television.

Sewell & Gardner are at the heart of the lettings industry and know the local area better than anyone and the difficulties landlords and tenants face when choosing a letting agent.

Rental properties are greatly in demand, with a lack of properties available to tenants, rentals are rising.  Landlords are seeking higher rentals, but Tenants are facing difficult times with concern over employment security, lack of pay rises and high inflation.  Finding the balance is where Sewell & Gardner are experts.  Having happy tenants who look after a property and pay the rental in a timely manner has a value and this should be considered.  If a tenant is paying over the odds for a property, they may not stay longer term, they will be more likely to complain when even minor issues arise and generally not be as content as they would be in a property where the rent is more realistic and affordable.

Being ARLA agents (The Association of Residential Letting Agents), our aim is to have very satisfied landlords who are delighted to have good tenants, are paying fees that are competitive within the local market and have the knowledge that their biggest assets are being protected by utilising the best tenancy agreements available.  We know all the legislation that the industry is governed by and can offer expertise in all areas of lettings.  Being a long standing agent in the area, you can be safe in the knowledge that whether you are a tenant or a landlord, you can get all you need from Sewell & Gardner.

Whether you wish to let a property as a tenant, or have your property let out on a let only basis or fully managed, we can offer a service to suit your requirements.  I am here to help, so please feel free to email me at rochelle@sewellgardner.com for advice or details of our service.

I hope to hear from you soon.
