How to minimise the detrimental impacts of the cost-of-living crisis on co-housing setup

This week starting 16 May 2022, we will be working with those renters who have been forced to take the co-living path/option in the property market. We are as well going to work with private landlords/ladies who provide or may want to provide co-living accommodation. There are reasons why the two sides of co-living agreement may want this sort of arrangement.

Why do renters co-live and landlords/ladies provide co-living properties?

Not everybody can afford to rent outright the full house or flat by themselves. Those living on low income may be forced to share with others. They could as well have serious other reasons pushing them to go co-living. Amongst the co-living renters, there are young people, students, families, older generation, etc.

Landlords/ladies may too have their own motive that leads them to provide this sort of accommodation. It is could more convenient or cost-effective for them to invest in this sort of co-living properties than to letting and managing other types of properties. 

Whatever the reason both landlords/ladies and renters may have, they need to understand this rental model before embracing it.

What is a co-living home?

Within the property jargon or literature, co-living home is on average defined as a residential home living model that accommodates two or more biologically unrelated people or individuals. It is part of sharing economy and can have some benefits such as access to locations (or areas) and properties that a co-living renter may otherwise not afford. However, like any other products or services in the housing market, the co-living rental model has not been exempted from the damaging effects of the current cost-of-living crisis.

Cost-of-living crisis as a challenge or opportunity to co-living setup

The cost-of-living crisis could be a challenge or an opportunity for the two sides of the rental agreement.

~ Landlords/ladies and the cost-of-living crisis

The cost-of-living crisis could be an opportunity for landlords/ladies to raise rent and services related to their property to match up the current level of inflation. On the contrary, it could be a challenge if they are not able to meet the cost of running their property or upgrade it.

~ Co-living renters and the cost-of-living crisis

The cost-of-living crisis can be a challenge for renters who may have to face rising rent, utility bills, council tax and other services linked to the property they rent or may rent. On the other hand, it could be an opportunity for them if they receive support towards their rising rental costs.

So, a co-living rental model could have some challenges to address and opportunities to take for both landlords/ladies and co-living renters.

Navigating way out the challenges posed by the cost-of-living crisis

This week, we are going to work with both landlords/ladies and renters to find out ways of minimising the impacts of the cost-of-living crisis on co-living homes. 

After working together with them, one can hope that each party will be able to navigate their own way out any negative impacts from the cost-of-living crisis on the co-living rental setup.

Compliance in Rental Homes

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 244

by Your Freelance e-Property Letting Agency

How to manage compliance issues

This week’s planned work with landlords/ladies will be on property compliance issues, on landlords’/ladies’ obedience in terms of the overall condition of the property and its contents. This week’s work builds on the Safe Rental Homes which we dealt with last week.

Standards and regulatory obligations regarding rental properties

There are standards and regulatory obligations as far as rental properties are concerned. Most professional landlords/ladies would make sure that their rental properties comply with these legislation and regulatory standards.

However, since the coronavirus broke out, there have been two phenomena. On one hand, many rental properties have been made COVID-19 compliant. On the other, there are still properties on the market that are failing the compliance test for the pre-coronavirus compliance area.

At this current level of market knowledge and information, it is difficult to assert that this lack of compliance has been the result of the pressure that the coronavirus or the current cost of living crisis has put on the rental sector and landlords/ladies in particular. Whether the coronavirus or the cost of living crisis has brought enormous pressure to everything and body, this should not be an excuse for not to comply with rental legislation and regulatory standards.

As part of the process of supporting landlords/ladies, but not to punish them, Home Relief will be working with those of them who are experiencing some difficulties in this area of compliance.

Working with landlords/ladies having compliance difficulties

Our work with them will cover such areas as

∝ Safe rental properties

∝ Habitable condition (to check for potential compliance issues and hazards such as damp, smoke alarms, poor living conditions, etc.)

∝ Sector regulation on compliance issues

∝ Serious versus minor compliance issues

∝ Property inspections and reports

∝ Evidence about the overall condition of the property and its contents

∝ Permitted or legal tenants

∝ In-person versus virtual property visits

∝ Records of inspections and reports

∝ A comprehensive inventory

Etc.

Extra help and support

Additionally, we shall share with landlords/ladies the mosaic of both print and online resources on the matter of compliance.

What this week’s work with landlords/ladies will achieve

One can hope that at the end of this week’s process, landlords/ladies will know where they stand on the compliance matter.

Need help about compliance in rental homes this Spring

Those landlords/ladies who would be interested in this week’s topic of compliance, they are free to contact Home Relief.

Need us to inspect your property and advise you on ways of fixing issues relating to compliance, please work with Home Relief.

Safe Rental Homes

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 243

How to make your private rental homes safe

This week, we are going to work with landlords/ladies on their contractual obligations to keep their rental properties safe.

COVID-19 and cost-of-living crises should not be an excuse for unsafe properties

It is possible that the current cost-of-living crisis, which has followed the COVID-19 disaster, may not make things easy for everybody including landlords/ladies. However, this should not be an excuse to have unsafe properties or not carry out life-saving repairs. Saying that is not about blaming anybody. It is just about responding to some demands from renters for safe conditions of living.

Ways of responding to renters’ request for safe living

There are many ways in which landlords/ladies can respond to renters’ demand for safe conditions of living.  Our response is about working with private landlords/ladies who are interested and experiencing safety issues with their rental properties so that these issues can be fixed.

In fact, most landlords/ladies and/or their letting/managing agents would be aware of the Health and Safety Standards for Rented Homes (HHSRS) and the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2008. 

The Act states that landlords/ladies should keep their properties safe, healthy and free from things that could cause serious harm. However, being aware of something is not the same as taking action to deal with problems if there are any safety issues that arise.

Areas of safety or concern by tenants/renters

As part of work with landlords/ladies, we shall discuss together the following areas of safety or concern by tenants at this challenging time of the cost-of-living crisis:

σ Hazards in a rental property that can affect renters’ health and well-being

σ Property improvements and repairs

σ Consequences of failing to fix unsafe properties

σ Remedial actions to be taken

σ Consequences of avoiding fixing the safety problem

σ Fine related to unsafe rental properties

Etc.

Extra help and support

During our work with landlords/ladies, they will as well have the opportunity to revisit or regain access to both print and online resources relating to safe rental properties. Support will be given in terms of the understanding of these materials and implications for safe rental properties.

Those landlords/ladies who would like to dip into the issue of safe rental homes, they are free to contact Home Relief.

Need help about safe rental homes this Spring

If you are a landlord/lady and needs some help about the safety issues of your rental properties, why not work with Home Relief?

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 241

by Your Freelance e-Property Letting Agency

 

How to Instruct Home Relief during this Easter Period

This week, we will be working with landlords/ladies who are contemplating to let their properties during this Easter period.  But, before pointing out the kind of work we will be doing with them, let us briefly highlight the property market during the Easter time.

Easter property market

Not every landlord/lady takes Easter break from lettings.  Just as there are renters who are looking for accommodation during Easter period.  For both landlords/ladies willing to let their properties and renters searching for properties to rent, the Easter property market is still busy.  And Home Relief is ready to offer its letting and rental services to both respectively. 

This offer will consider the current phase of living with COVID-19 and the cost of living.  Under this offer, we will be exploring with landlords’/ladies’ property letting needs, requirements and expectations under the current phase of living with COVID-19 while taking into account the cost of living for renters.  

What our work with landlords/ladies will cover

Our work with them will cover the following:

√ COVID-19 measures in the phase of living with COVID-19

√ Lettings plan and process during Easter time

√ Property maintenance during Easter period

√ Hybrid viewings (i.e. virtual or online viewings and in-person viewings)

√ Online rental payments and cover

√ Update on available resources and guidance about the letting industry during Easter period

Etc.

How helpful this week’s working activity will be  

One could hope that the week’s working activity will help …

√ To protect landlords/ladies from misinformation or lack of appropriate information regarding private residential property letting and management in the phase of living with COVID-19 

√ To boost landlords/ladies confidence for lettings and for instructing us while improving their understanding of the Easter property lettings market

√ To safeguard landlords/ladies’ interests and investment while saving money 

√ To avoid trouble tenancies and misunderstanding throughout this time of living with COVID-19 and the cost of living crisis

√ To reduce exposition to the risk linked to the cost of living crisis and associated risks of the moment

√ Above all, to bring peace of mind and security when giving instructions to let their property during this Easter period.

Need your letting instructions to be proceeded

If you are a landlord/lady and want to give instructions to let but do not know what to do during this Easter time, why not work with Home Relief?

Need us to proceed with your lettings during this phase of living with COVID-19 and the cost of living crisis, please work with Home Relief.

Lowering the Upfront Costs for Tenants

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 240

by Your Freelance e-Property Letting Agency

How to avoid having a property that is untenanted for a period of time

This week, we will be working with landlords/ladies on the costs that their prospective tenants may have to bear before they can move in.

Costs to be borne prior to the right to a tenancy

Generally, incoming tenants are asked to cover a certain number of costs before having the right to a tenancy. These costs could include a refundable security deposit (which is normally capped at 5 weeks’ rent or 6 weeks if the total annual rent is £50,000 plus) and/or a refundable holding deposit (which is normally capped at 1 week’s rent).

Manageable upfront costs for tenants

At this challenging time of the cost of living crisis, most people (including landlords/ladies and tenants) are experiencing some difficulties with rising prices and bills. Because of the current level of inflation, it is in the interest of both sides (landlords/ladies and tenants) of the rental agreement to work out a level of upfront costs that could be manageable by tenants.

What are those upfront costs we are talking about?

There are many types of costs depending on the cost structure that each letting agent or landlord/lady has set up. In the context of this week’s work with landlords/ladies, we can single out the refundable security deposit and refundable holding deposit.

Landlords/ladies may have their own good reason to set up a level of these deposits to suit their own investment or outgoing obligations on the property. However, they may need to include what the market is telling them about tenants’ long term financial stability as well.

Why it is important to consider market information and lower upfront costs

Lowering the upfront costs for your incoming tenants will help as follows:

Δ Avoid loss of rental income in the long term

Δ Encourage renters to move and increase the demand of properties to let

Δ Boost the expansion of property portfolios

Δ Prevent void properties

Etc.

Whether or not landlords/ladies would like to require a rental bond (or security deposit) and a rent in advance before their new tenants move in, it is always of good idea to check that this requirement does not end up to becoming a cost or handicap in itself.

Want to know more about upfront costs

Those landlords/ladies who would like to dip into the issue of upfront costs for their incoming tenants, they are free to contact Home Relief. 

Need  help and support about upfront costs, contact Home Relief NOW!

A Good Rental Yield

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 239

by Your Freelance e-Property Letting Agency

How to Get a Fairly Good Rent for your Property

 

This week we are working with landlords/ladies and home owners to determine ways of setting up good rent levels regardless of seasons (including in difficult times like of cost of living crisis as it is now).

A good rental yield

If you would like to invest in properties for rental purpose, you will need to find out what is called “rental yield”. The latter is defined in the property jargon as the value of rent you can expect to receive from your property in a year. In other words, a rental yield is the return made on a property investment in terms of monthly rent charged compared to the value or price of the property paid. Generally, it is considered that a rental yield between 5 and 8 per cent is relatively good for a buy-to-let investment.

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.

Online rental yield calculator

A rent calculator is a rental valuation tool created by a team of data scientists and that enables to find out, in advanced way, how much rent to charge for any house or flat in the UK. Through the online rent calculator, you can enter a property postcode and the calculator will instantly give you the rental value of the property or the average rent by postcode. You can do it to work out the process of determining rental yield as well.

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, the coronavirus shock, cost of living crisis, etc.).  Why?

Reasons for setting up a rent policy or structure

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 one size fits all rent policy.

What is a good rent in time like of the cost of living crisis?

In time of the cost of living crisis, it is recommendable to check all the facts and get data right and clear before making any decision over the rent.  There will always be conflicting stories and messages (including fake news) about the performance of the property market and the way in which the rental market is reacting over this challenging time. 

Any decision made over rent has to be based on verifiable statistics rather than commentaries and speculations made by the mass media.  For example, there have been various figures and different interpretations of the current and coming rises in the energy price caps.   

To get 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. 

Working with Home Relief to determine your rental value

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 very good but you do not know where to start and how to go about it, Home Relief can work with you to determine the better rental value for your property.      

To get advice for the better rent level for your property to let, please contact Home Relief NOW.

To know whether this week’s session on A Good Rental Yield can or cannot work for you as a landlord/lady, contact Home Relief NOW!

Rental Times

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

How to weather bad times to rent a property and save in good rent-a-property times

 

This week we are working with home seekers to find out ways of weathering bad times to rent a property and saving in good rental times.

Weathering the times to rent

Home seekers can rent a property at any times of the year (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter).  There is no a particular season to rent as such, although there are times when the rental market may be favourable or unfavourable to particular home seekers. Besides these favourable or unfavourable markets, there are personnel circumstances that can provide the reasons for the timing to rent.

Reasons that contribute to the season to rent

There are times when the rental market conditions may seem not going to home seekers’ direction for various reasons; conditions which may include the following: 

• Budget constraints

• Home seekers need to give notice where they are living

• Academic or employment reasons

• Health conditions

• Family motives

• Economic crisis

• The coronavirus and lockdown situations

Etc. 

For all these various reasons, home seekers may choose to delay or anticipate the rental decision to take up tenancies of a property, in relation to their personal circumstances and conditions of life.  Let us focus on few of these reasons.

Reason linked to the Russia-Ukraine conflict

To the above personal circumstances, it can be added special events like the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has led or exacerbated the rises in the prices of energy and food.  When energy (like electricity, gas and water) increases, the cost of renting also rises.  Some landlords/ladies have already notified their tenants that from April 2022 rent will increase.

Renters who may be affected or feel impacted by this crisis may rent or delay their decision to rent depending on the evolution of this conflict.  Those who can afford may not bother about how this crisis is affecting the rental market.  They may rent anyway, like it or not.   

Many home seekers may be asking whether or not this is the right time or season to rent.  Like any other needs (such as needs to eat, dress, drink, etc.), everybody needs somewhere to shelter no matter what is going on in the Black Sea between the Russians and Ukrainians.  Right time or not to rent, this is a matter of personal decision.

Reason relating to the coronavirus 

Home seekers can as well try to think whether or not to rent now as we are in the phase of Living with COVID-19 in England.  For those who really need a place to live, the current phase of the coronavirus does not matter for them. In fact, finding a shelter could help them to better manage their personal circumstances during this phase.

Easter rentals

The same can be said about the Easter time.  Some home seekers may find that it is better to get somewhere to stay and spend Easter in a new home.  On the contrary, the same time may be unsuitable for others.  It is all about weathering the times to rent.    

Customised support

This week’s work with home seekers is also a customised one.  This is because each home seeker has particular circumstances and conditions of life. 

The customised support will include the following: 

√ Identification of individual bad times to rent and good times to rent

√ Development of timely survival rental strategies

√ Time factors to consider when making a rental decision

√ Decision making process regarding the choice of the right time to rent

Etc.

Saving in good rent-to-property times

Home seekers can as well consider saving as an alternative so that they can rent when the season or timing is favourable to them.  If so, there are saving options that can be looked at.  This week, we are going to look at the saving options available in order to meet home seekers’ rental needs. 

Not sure about the right time to rent

If you are a prospective tenant or home seeker and you are not sure about the best or right time for you to rent; Home Relief can work with you to consider the time factors, economic variables and rental parameters applicable to you as well as support you can get to make an informed decision about the appropriate time for you to rent.

To involve Home Relief in your decision making process about rental times, please contact Home Relief Now!

Spring 2022 Lets

Welcome to Home Relief Bulletin Board!

Post No. 237

by Your Freelance e-Property Letting Agency

springlet

Spring is another favourable season of the year for home seekers to hunt for properties to let.

If you are a landlord/lady, there are various reasons to consider letting your properties to home seekers at this time since the coronavirus restrictions have been eased. There are reasons to do this.

Reasons to consider letting this Spring 2022

They include the following:

End of Winter move, Low competition to let, Home seekers’ will to rent, Ineffective market uncertainty, Risk-averse home seekers, Good deals on the market, Home Relief as your Spring Rental Season Negotiators, and End of tenancy agreement.

Let us look at each of these reasons.

• End of Winter move

The end of Winter can mean that those tenants, who were waiting for the change of season to make a smart move, may be willing to move out in Spring, and in doing so freeing places for the new comers and getting themselves ready to move to a new property.

• Low competition to let

When the competition to let a property is relatively low, this could mean that there are competitively priced properties to let.  It also signifies that the supply outweighs the demand of properties to let; suggesting that the asking market rent is within the average renters’ budget like at this time of “Living with COVID-19”.

• Home seekers’ will to rent

It does not matter whether or not there is a big or small stock of properties to let.  What is a decisive factor is home seekers’ willingness to rent.  Their will can command the rental transactions and the exchange of contracts.

• Ineffective market uncertainty

Despite the current uncertainty linked to the rises in the price of energy, food and the base interest rate; for those who are really looking for a place to rent, this uncertainty does not affect their willingness to move and have somewhere to live.  They will still take the risk to rent.

• Risk-averse home seekers

Home seekers who are exposed to property market uncertainty, they may think that it pays off to rent now as they need a place to live now rather than waiting after the uncertainty.  They may assume that the probability of finding or not finding the property they want will still the same now and after the uncertainty.

• Good deals on the market

When economic agents (e.g. home seekers or movers) are keen to proceed with their rental applications, there is always a chance to get good or fruity deals as far as letting is concerned.

• Home Relief as your Spring Rental Season Negotiators

Home Relief can negotiate between home seekers and landlords/ladies to achieve the optimal rents and tenancy terms that are suitable for all the parties to be engaged in the rental agreement.

• End of tenancy agreement

Those renters having the end of their tenancy agreement and or notice to leave coincide with the beginning of Spring can seize the rental opportunities of Spring to vacate.

The above is just a selection of basic demand and supply factors making the main reason for prospective home seekers to hunt for properties to rent this Spring.  They indicate that those who want to let their properties can have good and attractive letting deals in this new season.

Planning to let your property   

If you are a home owner and or landlord/lady planning to let your property but struggling to get the best letting deal, please do not hesitate to work with Home Relief.

How to Move Home Safely during the Phase of Living with COVID-19

This week, Home Relief will be e-discussing with renters about their moving in and out plans.

Home Relief will be e-working with them on how to proceed with their rental plans  during the phase of “Living with COVID-19”, easing of restrictions  and waning immunity from the vaccines. 

Points for e-discussion

This e-discussion will be dealing with a number of points such as:

√ Understanding how the rental industry is operating under the current national guidance on moving home safely

√ What to do and what not to do as renters during the phase of “Living with COVID-19”

√ How to adapt to new ways of working in the rental sector 

√ How to prepare yourself as a prospective tenant and rent within the boundaries of the current national guidance

√ The redefinition of safety and protection during the “Living with COVID-19” phase

√ Understanding and maintenance of the rules relating to property viewings, staggered viewings, etc.

√ Help those who want to move progress their plans to move with confidence.

Extra help and support

The e-discussion will enable those who want to rent to have the opportunity to e-discuss their plans in more details and register their rental needs.
