Atkinson McLeod - December 2011 Newsletter

In this month's festive newsletter, we reveal how only a tiny percentage of landlords are looking to sell at the end of a tenancy. With the rentals market so strong, this is hardly surprising. Landlords, quite clearly, are filling their stockings while they can. Ho ho ho. In our second article, we look at how rising rents can in fact be a double-edged sword. After all, the higher the rent, the greater the chance the tenant will struggle to meet it, especially in such a dire economic environment. Here, we give landlords some tips on reducing the chances of this happening to them. With the Nationwide and Halifax at complete odds over what happened to house prices in November, the utter pointlessness of property price predictions is the subject of our third article. You'd be better off calling in celebrity astrologer, Russell Grant, than trying to forecast the direction of house prices. As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod for a mince pie and a natter. Best regards, Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
