Affordable New Rentals and Lets for the New Academic Year!

The new school or academic year has started for many pupils and students.  One of September needs to be met is accommodation.  There could be people and families who are still looking for home rental or letting services either as home seekers or landlords/ladies.  If you are one of them, Home Relief would like to inform you that we are the specialised people for affordable home rental and letting services.

Home Relief can find either affordable accommodation for you if you are home seekers or suitable tenants for you if you are landlords/ladies.  Home Relief can as well advise on home rental and letting matters to enable you to achieve your home goals and plans for this new academic year.

A relief property service helping ordinary people and families with ordinary means of living to help themselves

We particularly, but not exclusively, work with ordinary people and families earning ordinary incomes.  We also work with parts of the community that is virtually excluded from the mainstream property rental market. 

We seriously take social goals and deprivation issues in the area of housing.  Our property service is designed to satisfy our customers’ and clients’ demands; to meet landlords’ requirements and to relieve home seekers’ needs. 

A home service for a safe and healthy life at this difficult time of the coronavirus pandemic

At this exceptional time of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, every landlord/lady or renter is looking for a safe and healthy service to protect themselves, their families and other members of the public.  To match their request our rental and letting service has been Covid-19 tested and secure against the pandemic. 

We follow and apply to letter the social distancing rules and restrictions while using appropriate personal protective equipment to keep life safe and healthy.  We prefer to e-work with landlords/ladies and renters, or run physical contact-free service (via online and virtual technologies) to protect everybody.  

A home service for peace of mind and secure financial return

Our home service benefits home owners and landlords/ladies who are looking for peace of mind and security in letting their properties.  We provide them with suitable renters and ensure that they receive a good and reliable return on their investment over the long term period.  We provide all-round residential property services (from letting to maintenance) and take on our books any size of properties (ranging from a single room to large houses), tenures and leases.

A home service that suits home seekers’ needs and budgets 

We provide to home seekers and renters with the types of accommodation service that suit their needs and budgets.  Our relief service will not only provide them with a home to live, but will also help them to help themselves in effectively running the other aspects of their life such as…

finding occupational opportunities, meeting educational needs for families with children, actively integrating into local life, finding local childcare services, improving their access to local healthcare and other amenities, re-engaging with economic activity after the lockdown due to the coronavirus, etc.

How to manage your letting (as a landlord/lady) or rental (as a home seeker) goals in uncertain times of the coronavirus pandemic and the delay in economic exit negotiations

As the adverse effects of the coronavirus continue together with the uncertainty linked the UK’s economic exit agreement from the EU’s single market, many landlords/ladies and home seekers/tenants are still asking questions about the effects of these two issues (Covid-19 and economic exit) on their letting activities for landlords/ladies or rental applications/tenancies for home seekers/renters. 

These questions are asked as new health restrictions will be in force from this Monday the 14th of September 2020 with regard to the protection against the new spikes of the coronavirus pandemic.  They are as well raised by non-UK citizen landlords/ladies and tenants/home seekers with ordinary income earning capacities.  They are asking how the delay in the next stage of economic exit negotiations between the UK and EU would respectively affect their letting and rental situations. 

In order to deal with their concern, we are holding customised sessions with them to provide information and guidance to their specific questions to help where we can to reduce worries and anxieties they may have in relation to the consequences from the new health restrictions, economic exit negotiations delay from the EU’s single market and any potential unknown factors linked to the property market.

The purpose of this week’s session

We are working with both landlords/ladies and tenants/home seekers of ordinary income earning capacity to try to reduce level of anxiety amongst them regarding their property needs.  It is hoped that this week’s session will help them to manage uncertainty and risk associated to the above mentioned restrictions and delay.

Who will run this week’s sessions

This week’s session will be run by landlords/ladies and tenants/home seekers.  It is them to raise the questions or issues they have in relation to the uncertain and delaying times.  We will then try to find together possible leads to questions to be raised. 

Add-ons

Besides the Key theme of the week on how to manage your property goals in uncertain and delaying times, there will be some add-ons.

The following will be added to the landlords’/ladies’ session:

√ Protection of property letting and management projects in times of the coronavirus pandemic and economic negotiations

√ Minimisation of letting risks and threats in uncertain and delaying times

√ Property letting growth alternative plans in uncertain and delaying times

The following will be included in the renters’ session:

√ Finding finance to rent a property in difficult times of the coronavirus and economic exit negotiations

√ Rental payment options or plans

√ Digital and online rental property searches

The customised session will only last for up to 10 minutes.  The session can be booked online and/or offline.  To access it, you need to contact Home Relief in advance.

If you are looking for support regarding any of the above mentioned matters, Home Relief’s Customised Sessions for landlords/ladies and tenants/home seekers could be an opportunity you can’t afford to miss.

Decent Rents

What to do for your property to command a decent rent regardless of seasons

 

This week we are working with landlords/ladies and home owners to determine ways of setting up decent rent levels regardless of seasons (including in difficult times like of the coronavirus pandemic).

Getting expert advice about your asking rent

Before issuing a tenancy (for example an assured short hold tenancy agreement), it is advisable to seek expert advice about the levels of rent that your property can generate.  It is important to seek this kind of advice so that you do not charge more or less than what your property really deserves. 

There are benefits in seeking expert advice on the rent level.  One of these benefits is that it helps to avoid any potential conflicts (such as unpaid rents or rent arrears) with tenants over the level of rent you are charging in the course of the tenancy period.  

Where to get rent advice

Rent advice can be obtained from various sources or experts on the rental market.  It can be given by a local rent officer, a letting agency, a rent valuation office, etc. 

You can even get it online through various websites having properties rent valuation features or online rent calculator.  Some of these rent services are free of charge without obligations.

Working with Home Relief to set up a rent policy

This week, what we are undertaking with landlords/ladies is not only fixing a rent for a particular property.  It is also trying to develop a rent policy and structure for our clients so that their properties could command a rent level that is fairly good or decent irrespective of seasons (i.e. Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, busy, not busy, EU exit, Covid-19 time, etc.).  Why?

There are various reasons that contribute to a good rent policy or structure.  There could be changes in the rental market and the economy with ups and downs.  Likewise, your property may not be the same when you last refurbished it. 

In the above circumstances, what can you do for your property to command decent rents regardless of seasons, regardless of lows and highs in the rental sector?  Landlords/ladies need to bear in mind that each property is a particular case that needs to be treated on its own.  There should not be a one-size-fits-all rent policy.

What is a decent recent in times of the coronavirus pandemic and potential lockdowns

In times of the coronavirus pandemic and potential lockdowns, it is recommendable to get all the facts and data right and clear before making any decision over the rent.  There are already conflicting stories and messages about the performance of the property market and the way the rental market is reacting over this time. 

Any decision made over rent has to be based on verifiable statistics rather than commentaries and speculations made by the mass and social media.  To make the right decision, each property case has to be treated individually with all the determinant market factors and conditions.  This should be done while considering the short, medium and long term changes. 

If you are a landlord/lady and or home owner and would like your property generates a level of rental income that is respectable or decent but you do not know where to start and how to go about it, Home Relief can work with you to determine the decent rental value for your property.      

To get advice about the decent rent level for your property to let, contact Home Relief.

To know whether this week’s session on Decent Rents can or cannot work for you as a landlord/lady, contact Home Relief as well.
