Summer time at Brinkley’s
Author: robert brinkley | Categories:
Summer has arrived, and lettings is ScorchingThe summer has truly kicked in and the tenants are out in force, the lettings team are crazy busy doing back to back viewings, this is traditionally the best period of the year and 2019 has not changed this trend, in fact it feels busier. Even with the uncertainty in the market the lettings is still doing record numbers, we have seen a massive increase over the last few months, of landlords and tenants doing longer contracts, this is because of quiet a few reasons, landlords charges have increased with the tenants ban, things have become tighter and people are now having to scrutinize there properties to make sure they are making the right choices, and it might not be financially viable to do the a 12 months contract with a 6 months break clause, the average contract has now increased to 24 months, we had a record month of tenants requesting 3 years fixed tenancies. All our staff have had extensive training in the new legislation changes, and are ready to help if you’re looking to rent out your property, please feel free to pop into any of our office if you would like some advice.
