Ashford BTL Opportunity

GUERNSEY WAY TN24Newly listed with Bradley Bishop, this property’s features include 2 double bedrooms and a conservatory giving an extended living area. The property appears beautifully presented by the vendor with nothing further to spend and I would expect it to be quickly snapped up by a great tenant at an estimated £875pcm, this producing a healthy 4.8% to 5% gross yield.

Full listing details can be found at http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-62608657.html

If you would like to discuss the potential of this or any other property you may be considering as an investment, I would be pleased to help – you can email me at robert@taylorslettings.co.uk or by telephone: 01233 663266

 

Taylors Lettings Provides Free Rental Valuation Tool

Ashford Rental Valuation ToolTaylors Lettings has introduced a free online rental valuation tool. This will provide an estimate of the rental value of any property in the Ashford area.
Property owners simply insert their property’s postcode and select the exact house number or name from a drop down menu. Adding the number of bedrooms will add to the accuracy of the projected rental value. The rental value calculator is driven by house price data collected by the land registry as well as details of known rental yields.

As with all algorithms there is a potential margin of error. But the online generated rental value is a starting point before we apply our up to date knowledge of the local lettings market.

Increased Fire Protection For Rental Property

Smoke Alarm

 

From 1st October 2015 The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 place increased responsibilities on Landlords to ensure that working smoke alarms are installed in all rented properties.

 

 

Landlords must:

  • Have at least one smoke alarm installed on every storey of their rental property
  • Have a carbon monoxide alarm in any room with a solid fuel appliance
  • Ensure all alarms are working on the first day of a new tenancy

A pair of 10 year sealed-for-life smoke alarms cost only around £25.00 and give landlords a low cost, tamper-proof and easily installed solution to the new regulations’ requirements and protecting their tenants from the potentially fatal consequences of a fire within their home.
