    Sudden demand for tenancies of flats- Canary Wharf

    As luck would have it four of my properties have all come empty at the same time. I have never had so many applicants for each property and the agents have achieved the asking price without question. The properties are in the South West. What are other landlords experiencing? Anyone with any idea what it's like in Canary Wharf at the moment?

          Actually I meant the weather! As far as the rental market goes...haven't a clue, sorry.

            Shouldn't Canary Wharf be near Birdcage Walk? Or is it aviary long distance?

              I thought they lived down coal mines. Or was that in the olden days? (When there WERE coal mines?)

                As a tenant who keeps an eye on the market, 1 and 2 bed flats in London seem to be pretty much the same as a year ago (2 beds maybe even slightly cheaper). 3 bedroom plus properties seem to have increased somewhat, but not by anything like the price of butter.

                  Are you raven mad? It's only a couple of miles as the crow flies!

                    I have HMO's in London and due to the expense of all the works have been trying my luck with rents and seem to be achieving them eg if I was getting 100 for a room I now seem to be able to get 130 no problem.

                      But what about pelicans and pigeons? One bird flu over the cuckoo's nest.

                          Did I awaken some kind of dormant loathing inside of you for the people of Hull? They seem to be getting some bad press recently but we musn't forget Maureen Lipman and John Alderton who are some of Hull's most prominent offspring.

                          That and the fact its twinned with Freetown in Sierra Leone

                            John Prescott, too. Not so prominent, now, except in girth and mouth.

                              Haven't been following room in HMOs, but this wouldn't surprise me at all. One of my friends is just about to rent one in a reasonable location for an astoundlingly low price, though.

                              If this is true, it seems that HMO rooms are getting to be even worse value than studios, which is really saying something. Luckily I generally live in 2 bed flats .

                              Pigeons are at a premium in St James's Park these days, by the way - most of them have been consumed.
