Ten­ants im­prove rather than move

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

DIY: Al­most three quar­ters of renters have con­ducted DIY at their own ex­pense, ac­cord­ing to Plen­tific.com. More than a fifth have spent over £500 on home im­prove­ments while rent­ing. At 85 per cent, Sh­effield has the high­est per­cent­age of ten­ants mak­ing home im­prove­ments and Leeds has the low­est at 40 per cent. Plen­tific’s Stephen Jury, said: “While ten­ants can con­sult and charge their land­lord for any nec­es­sary changes, our find­ings show that most renters will pay for and con­duct some home im­prove­ments them­selves.

This shows that per­son­al­is­ing the liv­ing area is im­por­tant to Gen­er­a­tion Rent.”
