In my region (Mid Devon) it seems the rental prices are holding or even increasing. There is a serious lack of any good quality rental property and with so many first time buyers unable to get on the property ladder they're turning to the rental market which has increased demand.
Being a small town we didn't have many migrant workers so there isn't a sudden oversupply of property and the town isn't big enough to mean there are lots of cheap rental flats etc like in London.
So if you want to be landlord, do it in a small town!

Yep, he's promoting money saving by one section of his membership at the expense of another.
Not the first time he's done this. He has 'previous'.

Im sorry but they are genuine - it is the legal responsibility of the landlord to make sure that the boiler is fully maintained and serviced and also according to my contract that the bushes are kept in order...im not throwing away £700 per month for the fun of it and so any minor issues should be resolved! Do you not think that perhaps the reason I have been in the same property for so long is because I am a good tenant!

My step daughter and boyfriend are looking to rent right now and all they can find are agency managed properties. I object to paying £200 just to process their application (seems like money for old rope to me), but I havent seen anything advertised by LL's themselves.
Also, the attitudes displayed by some of the staff really surprises me...trying to arrange viewings can be an incredibly frustrating process...do they not WANT to find tenants and make commission.
Is it just a case of reading the local paper classifieds or is there a site somewhere that I don't know about?
They and I would much rather them deal directly with a LL.
