Our campaign for happiness in 2021 continues this week by looking at what can make landlords/ladies happy in 2021.
In 2020, we had many COVID-19 related situations that made landlords/ladies unhappy. Because of the restrictions and rules relating to COVID-19 and lockdown, we had for example the following situations:
• Landlords/ladies could not rent their properties as they wish
• Landlords/ladies could not maintain or refurbish their properties the way they wanted
• Landlords/ladies could not easily sell or regain possession of their properties.
One would have thought in 2021, these situations will disappear. With the rebound of COVID-19 and a new national lockdown, they could still experience the same situation. Like any body else, landlords/ladies need some happiness in 2021. But, what can make them happy?
Happiness for landlords/ladies could mean a variety of things. In the context of this campaign, we have identified six areas we think that can bring happiness to them. They are as follows:
(1) Rental income
Not losing income from rental payments from tenants and or rental valuation can keep landlords/ladies happy from the property lettings and management perspective.
(2) Property maintenance
Landlords/ladies would also be happy if their tenants are well looking after their property by keeping it in a good healthy and safe condition.
At this challenging time of the new COVID-19 variant and second lockdown, landlords/ladies would be more than happier if they can count on their letting or managing agents or someone else should they need any help.
(4) Generous treatment
Given what is happening with the economy as a result of the COVID-19 and lockdowns, it could be cost-effective for landlords/ladies like any investor to be entitled to some sort of reduced fees or staggered payments for any letting and/or management services they may seek.
No matter the economic circumstances we are in, landlords/ladies should be free to let their property to the kind of tenants or renters they want.
Happy landlords/ladies will have trusted or confident relationships with their tenants and those working for their property.
The above indicators of happiness are not the only that can be useful for landlords/ladies. They could be more. What is important is that they give some indication on what can bring happiness for landlords/ladies as far as property letting and management are concerned.
