Welcome back to all our property supporters, followers, blog readers and web visitors. We hope that you had a relaxing festive break and wish you Happy New Year again!
After careful consideration of the issues that renters faced in 2020 and of those highlighted in our 2020 Review, we would like to start 2021 property campaign with the theme of happiness and joy for renters.
Making Renters Happy in 2021
The letting and rental stories of 2020 were all about COVID-19 outbreak and its ramifications in the economy, particularly but not exclusively in the housing economy. 2021 could be of a different story, of a story of happiness for renters while still fighting the coronavirus effects and managing the current lockdown.
Experiencing lockdowns twice could make renters unhappy. Yet, it is a general and global situation. 2021 could be the year of no one is left behind whether they are private or social renters in the rental ladder and market. There are little things that can be done to recreate happiness and joy for renters in 2021.
What are those contributors to renters’ happiness in 2021?
These few contributors to renters’ happiness could include the following:
(1) Renters’ money
Making renters happy could mean ensuring that renters do not lose their deposit without sound reasons while receiving rental service that is value for the rent they pay.
It could also mean providing them leads on funding information covering items such as: deposit schemes, rent shortfall, insurance cover for low income renters, etc.
(2) Healthy property
Maintaining a rented property that is healthy, safe and COVID-19 secure can contribute to renters’ happiness and joy.
Renters can count on Home Relief, their landlords/ladies and the rental sector in times of crisis like of the COVID-19 outbreak and surge in terms of advice and guidance in what to do to stay healthy and safe.
For example: supporting the improvement of renters’ knowledge and skills in the area of property rental can bring happiness in the way they understand rental literature, as well as supporting their social mobility so that they can change their status from low to medium and high income earners to avoid rent payment issues.
(4) Kindness and consideration
Removing any non-essential costs to the service provided to renters at this challenging time of COVID-19 could bring some happiness and send a message of kindness and consideration to renters.
For example: when recycling items as a landlord/lady, you could alternatively think of your rented property if these items could be used in your rented property.
Renters should always have the freedom to stay where they want to live without forcing them to stay in the property because it is convenient for the landlord/lady or their letting/managing agents.
For example: providing easily available and accessible information about renters’ rights and obligations can reinforce this freedom while helping them to understand legal terms and jargon.
Keeping a trusted relationship between renters and Home Relief, between renters and their landlords/ladies can boost their confidence and happiness.
All the above contributors to renters’ happiness could be designed to make renters happy. One could make assumption that the more they are happier, the more they become self-confident and can meet their rental requirements.
So, Making Renters Happy in 2021 is what we have on the menu for this week to start off 2021 rental campaign.
For those renters who have any issue about happy relationships with their landlord/lady in their rented property, they are free to contact Home Relief to discuss this matter.
For those renters who are looking for happiness as far as property rental is concerned, they can work with Home Relief so that we could together find ways of bringing happiness into their current or future tenancy.
For those who want just to go in depth about how to be a happy renter in 2021, they are as well welcome to work with Home Relief should they wish to do so.
