  • Any good website to advertise property?

    Hi,

    I am trying to rent my property directly and have put it on www.torent.co.uk, www.letalife.com and www.fish4homes. So far, no luck (no phone calls at all after 1 week).

    I have done some market research for market valuation and I have put my property at the lower end of the price bracket I was advised by letting agents. I also looked at other properties in the same area and I am confident the property is properly priced.

    I believe that the property is not renting because the marketing exposure is poor. Could you please advise of any good websites to advertise property in the Midlands? The property is a 3 bed detached and the monthly rental is £750.

    Thanks.

    www.letsdirect.co.uk We use it alot and have found many tenants through this site.

    Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

      We have always had successful letting simply by using the classifieds in the local paper....sometimes the old methods are the best!

        Same here - I'm sure it depends greatly on the area you live in and your target market, but in my own experience, one ad in the local weekly paper (£50-60) almost always results in a letting, whereas I've tried any number of websites with barely any enquiries resulting, let alone lettings.

          I found letalife very successful, but maybe I was lucky! I presume you've looked in the "property wanted" sections of the websites to see if anyone wants what you've got? Have you got a local gumtree.com?

            I've found adverts in the local paper get better results than web postings.

            Be warned though that some of the responses to newspaper ads are from those who may not be able to meet letting agents criteria to become their clients or who have special requirements.

            Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.

                Our 6 month short term assured tenancy agreement ended on the 2nd August. We are with a reputable agency. We were invited to renew for a further 6 months back in July and were asked to email our confirmation that we wish to renew in writing. This I did. We were sent the renewal tenancy to sign. We have...

                I would say your original AST continues as SPT.
                If now a new verbal AST, you may have a new fixed term and you cannot serve NTQ during fixed term (6 months?).
                Talk to LL directly, rather than LA.
                Why did you agree to a new AST, rather than request rolling over to SPT....

                Hi guys, I know that a tenant can claim a penalty on an unprotected deposit but I just wondered when the 6 year clock starts ticking.

                As memory fades over time, can someone provide a 'sticky' for dates when key elements of LL&T Legislation changed? I believe Apr 2012 predates later deposit timescales.

                Hi,
                Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

                It's worth noting that guidance is under part 4 where tenant obviously is given notice to end of a period and therefore apportionment would not be applicable.

                The reference to the notice to quit ending the tenancy on the notice date does not change the fact that it obviously does however,...

                I think thats exactly what the section I have just quoted confirms.

                And thereafter, if you choose not to accept they are leaving as a result of the section 21 you must insist on a notice to quit or await a court ordering possession (where you will be ordered to apportion anyway)

                A lot of energy has been expended in this debate. It has been suggested a LL has no need to take Court action if T apparently vacates after receiving a s21 but with no Notice. LL cannot safely assume has vacated without Court confirmation, to avoid a T allegation of 'illegal eviction'. Equally I would...

                If someone could copy and paste section 21 (4) a and b (I'm really not technical!), the law seems to recognise that a tenancy CAN end as a result of a section 21 and before a possession hearing.

                21(4)b........the tenancy could be brought to an end by notice to quit given by the landlord...

                Assuming that the money originally paid had been used as a deposit for the single tenant tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days from when the 2012 tenancy started. And... if that was a fixed term tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days for any subseqent renwal and likewise from when it went periodic.
