Landlords will be expected to have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC ) on all their properties with effect from the 1st April 2018, by law there will be a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an EPC.

The regulations will come into force for new lets and renewals of tenancies from 1st April 2018 and for all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020. It will be unlawful to rent a property that breaches this requirement for a minimum E rating, unless there is an applicable exemption. A civil penalty of up to £4,000 will be imposed for breaches. If you would like more information on this subject then please click on the link below.

For Landlords uncertain if they hold a valid EPC for their property they can access the EPC Register via this link to check

If a valid EPC is not held for a particular property and you would like us to obtain certification then please contact us on telephone number 0151 644 6974; the cost for us to do this for you would be £60 + VAT.

Chadworth Developments are delighted to announce that through the month of May we broke our own record of successful tenancy signups as well as keeping the void period on all vacant properties to a minimum.

Business Manager, Ben Hulme commented;"during the past month we have averaged over 3 sign ups per week which maintains my belief that the rental market shows no sign of slowing down. The current economic climate means that mortgages for first time buyers are still proving difficult to obtain resulting in more people than ever are turning to the rental market.  Maybe the uncertainty of interest rates also acts as a deterrent to first time buyers who may feel that renting property gives them a lot more financial freedom for the foreseeable future."

Chadworth continue to offer both tenants and landlords fantastic service and affordability along with providing safe, secure and comfortable accommodation.  Contact the office today to arrange a viewing on properties that we have available.

Rental Market Strong

Despite the countries economy going through one of the worst recessions in recent memory, the rental market is remaining as strong as ever.  This recession has been difficult due to the strain of the housing market collapsing and the banks taking a massive hit, but this has led to a huge increase in the demand for rental property. 

Commenting on the upsurge in demand, Ben Hulme, Business Manager said "With the collapse of the housing market, this has led to many properties being snapped up by people with available cash.  Some of our Landlords are choosing to extend their portfolios during this period and as a result are reaping the benefits."

So where are the best bargains to be found?  Will Rowlands, Business Administrator believes that the best bargains are the ever popular 2 up/2 down, commenting "I recently attended an auction and by far the most popular lots were the 2 bedroom terraced houses.  One property was purchased in Rosedale Road in between the parks in Tranmere for £43,000 and although it did require some renovation ie. with a conservative estimate spend of £20,000 the property would still give a return of 9.42% per annum!... much better than any bank!!"

So what do the professionals see for the future?

First and foremost, the rental market will improve and develop even further.  The amount of properties on the rental market will stabilize and then over time the rental figures will increase, all be it gradually.  On the flip side, house prices will increase and therefore offer chances to sell and gain good percentage yields. 

If we can be of any help and offer any advice, we would be more than happy to take your call so get in touch with us today on 0151 644 6974.
