Welcomes Rugg Review on the Private Rented Sector - 24 October 2008
Review marks major watershed in attitudes
landlords need to exercise caution, warns ARLA's Ian Potter - 18 November 2008
Potter gives his thoughts on the RICS
Residential Lettings Survey Q3 2008.
rental market is clearly very robust in certain parts of the country but this
trend is far from being uniform and, in fact, it could not even be said that it
is a standard trend across certain cities. In London, for example, there is a
huge discrepancy in the strength of rentals from area-to-area.
landlords have entered the lettings market
in the last year without perhaps planning to do so and have taken this step out
of necessity rather than desire. I would urge these amateur landlords to exercise
caution and to research as much as possible as it is a position of no little responsibility.
It is imperative that they seek out a regulated agent who is in a position to
give them strong and independent advice, and who can protect funds that are being
held on their behalf under client money protection schemes. Source ARLA
