Ten­ants fight for prop­erty

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

SELF-SER­VICE let­tings busi­ness Upad says it re­ceived 19 ten­ant in­quiries for ev­ery prop­erty last month.

James Davis, founder of Upad and a land­lord for the last 14 years, said that de­mand is now sky high. He says: “Upad re­ceived dou­ble the amount of calls from ten­ants last month com­pared to the start of the year, and Right­move’s rental stock is down circa 10 per cent year on year.”

He adds that room rents in larger house shares are par­tic­u­larly in de­mand

“It’s in­ter­est­ing to see how ten­ants are try­ing to make sav­ings. While liv­ing in a house­share with five other peo­ple isn’t nec­es­sar­ily ideal for many, rents are of­ten lower and bills are split.”
