Recent reports show that private sector letting rents are growing faster than sale prices in London. The average rental for a private letting in London rose 16% in 2010.
You may be considering renting out your property or purchasing on a buy-to-let basis. However, the obligations on private landlords are considerable, ranging from compliance with the Health and Housing Safety Rating System to the regulations relating to the protection of deposits to statutory procedures for regaining possession. For example, UK Energy & Climate Secretary Chris Hulme has recently announced changes to the new Energy Bill which means from April 2016 landlords will not be able to refuse tenants, or local authorities, reasonable requests to improve their property’s energy efficiency.
