Today’s generation are searching for a better alternate to being stuck with a mortgage; more and more people are opting to rent properties instead. Compared with a mortgage, renting is more flexible and allows younger people the freedom to do whatever they please. The idea of being able to choose their dream job in any location without having to go through the hassle of selling their home and all of the legal expenses associated with it is definitely a plus.
Two thirds of under-35’s currently rent their housing and have relocated more than once in recent years. Although this could be put down to rising house prices, studies have shown that a lot of people actually prefer to rent because of the convenience it offers them. This means that there are lots of opportunities for property investors to let their investments to tenants, particularly in sought after areas of London.
However, there can be a downside to renting. A recent survey by the government, published on the 23rd of July, shows that many privately rented homes are in poor condition. Landlords have a duty to ensure that their rental properties are safe for tenants to occupy, taking into account matters such as fire and gas safety.
