Landlords’ Barometer – #48: So, what is the biggest threat to landlords?

Welcome to another edition of the “Landlords Barometer” – trending topics and issues for landlords.

1. The 2017 General Election – impact on the property market

The snap General Election will no doubt create uncertainty in the property sector and will likely subdue the housing market because of this.

2. Property Fraud Awareness Week – an overview of property fraud

Property Tribes has joined forces with Anthony Gold Solicitors to create a week of content creating awareness of how fraud is perpetrated in the property section. The first instalment gives an overview of property fraud and some of the warning signs.

3. The biggest threat to landlords?

Section 24, Right to Rent, new energy efficiency regulations, Universal Credit, the PRA … none of those are the biggest threat I see for landlords!

4. Are rents increasing or falling?

Landlords from the Property Tribes community report on what is happening in their local area.

5. Studio flats: are they a good investment?

I am not a fan of studio flats for many reasons, although many investors think they are a low-risk purchase. I explain why I believe they are not a good investment

6. How to increase the rent

Solicitor David Smith has written a guide on the correct procedures for increasing rent during an existing tenancy.

Event of interest:

The Property Investor & Homebuyer Show is being held today and tomorrow at ExCeL London and is the UK’s largest and most comprehensive property investment expo.

For 20+ years this event has brought property companies face-to-face with the UK investor. The HMO and Innovation Zones are set to prove particularly popular features.

The Property Investor Show is a “must attend” event for anyone interested in property investment. Seminars, talks, debates, and networking all combine for a really valuable day out.
