The Rise in Private Landlord Letting Properties

One of the ways to gain a small income in these times of economic crisis is to rent out a portion of your home or invest in a landlord’s rental property. This is where you provide private landlord lettings to anyone who is interested in letting from a private landlord, as opposed to a company such as Sugarhouse Properties.

Renting From a Private Landlord

In some countries it is felt to be almost an obligation to buy you own property and many people struggle to do just this. However, in a lot of countries, it is thought to be better to rent your home and many people rent flats from private landlords and hunt for houses to rent from private landlords. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of these methods of obtaining a roof over your head and I would recommend going through a reputable company such as Sugarhouse Properties.

When it comes to landlord houses for rent, it is often cheaper to rent houses from private landlords as you cut out the fees to letting agency and this works out well from the point of view of the landlord also.

Advertising Professional Lets, Chapel Allerton

In the days before the internet, the most common way to advertise that a property was available to rent, was the “to let” boards put up outside. The other method was to put up signs in the local newspapers and shop windows.

Letting Season 2012-2013

It's been another busy student letting season again in Leeds. Most of our properties were let in a 6 week period of utter madness! This has been different to the past couple of years as the Student lettings seem to have been let over a longer period due to the two cold winters and lots of snow on the ground during peak periods. The mild winter has definitely helped the student accommodation move a lot quicker. Despite all of this we still have a steady stream of new properties coming on board and as usual we are making sure that anything we take on is of a similar quality to our stock at the beginning of the year. As usual, for the Student letting season, the best addresses go first however we are still taking on quality properties in good areas such as Hyde Park, Burley, Kirkstall and Headingley however these are not on the most popular streets but located close by.
