    Do You Know Your Market?

    I am currently involved in writing a dissertation regarding the Buy-to-Let industry as part of my university course.

    I have spent many hours researching online, at libraries and via telephony, however, I can't find the answers to a few really important questions.

    At the start of my project I thought these questions would be the easiest to locate but so far I just can not ascertain any relevant information.

    As such, I would be grateful if the members of LandlordZone could give me a hand with the following questions:

    (Please note: if you have not got accurate data, then an educated estimate would be sufficient)

    1.How many private landlords / buy-to-let investors currently operate in the UK?

    2.How many new landlords / buy-to-let investors are anticipated to enter the market in 2006?

    3.How many estate agents are currently operating in the UK?

    4.How many new estate agencies are anticipated to enter the market in 2006?

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    What makes you think there is a list of private landlords with or without mortgages? It gets even more complicated if you include people who take in lodgers. Do you want to include these landlords too?

    Any answer will be correct I think you will find.

      You can find the answers to your statistical questions in the September issue of the LandlordZONE Newsletter - see Newsletter Archive at:

      Fortunately for you the recently produced ARLA commissioned report for the 10th aniversary of Buy-to-Let is about the most thorough and in depth one you will ever see - produced by professor Michael Ball of the University of Reading. This should give you all you need.

        I have located the required information regarding Landlord numbers within the UK via Septembers newsletter.

        Thanks very much for your assistance.

          I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

          Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

          House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
          Garden was left in a mess...

          That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

          Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
          Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

          We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

          Tenant moved in...

          The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

          I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

          Lawcruncher,

          Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...
