A few months ago, I wrote an article on the Clapham Property Blog about the length of time it took to sell a property in Clapham and the saleability of the different price bands (i.e. whether the lower/middle or upper local property markets were moving slower or quicker than the others). For reference, a few months ago it was taking on average 76 days from the property coming on the market for it to be sold subject to contract (and that was based on every Estate Agent in Clapham) … and today … 126 days .. does that surprise you with what is happening in the UK economy?
Well, a number of Clapham landlords and homeowners, who are looking to sell in the coming months, contacted me following that article to enquire what difference the type of property (i.e. Detached/Semi/Terraced/Apartment) made to saleability and also the saleability of property by the number of bedrooms. As I have said before, whether you are a Clapham landlord looking to liquidate your buy to let investment or a hom…
“I just love looking over and keeping up to date the 108 pieces of legislation that govern the rental of residential property in the UK”
...No Clapham Landlord, ever
If you are one of the 2,159 Clapham (or SW4 to be precise) landlord’s that manages your own property, would it surprise you to know that there are 108 separate pieces of legislation that govern the rental of private houses to tenants. Oh, and on top of the 108 pieces of law, there are further 300+ regulations in the mix. Whilst Clapham landlords may once have preferred to manage their Clapham buy-to-let properties themselves to boost their profits, many Clapham landlords are starting to see this as a false economy.
In the last four years, an additional 830 landlords in Clapham have converted from self-managed to having their property managed by a letting agent in Clapham, taking the total number of properties under management in Clapham to 3,377 (out of a total of 5,536 private rental properties in Clapham).
Many folks say moving home is the most stressful thing. Moving home is like someone (and that someone is usually you and you are the cause of this devastation) has collected all your worldly goods, put them into brown boxes and into a lorry making your whole life look like a Amazon delivery van, only to spend the next six months unpacking it all, whilst unable to find important things like your bank cards, ‘those’ shoes or special jewellery!
We wish we could be instantly transported like in Star Trek “Beam me up Scotty to a blissful moved in state”. Yet the week you move, it’s like an episode from the original 1960’s series Star Trek, when the crew had a transporter accident with an ion-storm sends Kirk and Spock into an alternate reality, where the caring Federation is the merciless Terran Empire, and the USS Enterprise is a warship and chaos eschews!!!
Star Trek aside, when you decide to move and before the stress of living out of cardboard boxes for months descends; first you t…
