Landlords to seek more quality in tenants in 2013

Landlords to seek more quality in tenants in 2013

Continued high demand from potential tenants for buy-to-let homes will allow landlords to become more picky with whom they allow to rent their properties throughout 2013, it has been claimed by an expert.

James Davis, chief executive officer of UPad, said that it will become more beneficial to tenants to try to look ahead of the game and give themselves an edge over people who are essentially their competitors in the rental market.

He added that the last year had seen the average landlord looking at 20 enquiries for every home that they put up for let, which will lead to them picking quality over quantity.

"Those who will look after their property, pay the rent on time and in full and be responsible renters are sure to be preferred by landlords and I foresee full tenant referencing and rent guarantee agreements becoming the norm in 2013," said Mr Davis.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801510684-ADNFCR
