York­shire ten­ants hap­pi­est with rents

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

TEN­ANTS in York­shire and Hum­ber de­rive the best value for money from their rent than in other parts of the UK, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent poll by the UK As­so­ci­a­tion of Let­ting Agents (UKALA).

More than four in five rated their rent as good or very good when asked if it rep­re­sented value for money. Just six per cent per­ceived their rent as poor or very poor.

Ten­ants in the South West were least pleased, with only 57 per cent rat­ing their rent as good or very good and a third say­ing it was poor or very poor.

Richard Price, UKALA ex­ec­u­tive, said: “Land­lords and let­ting agents face a lot of un­war­ranted crit­i­cism for the ris­ing costs of liv­ing.”
