Atkinson McLeod - March 2012 Newsletter

Life, it’s all about getting the balance right. Most of us rarely do, but then there you have it. We’re human after all — all too human. Existential pontification aside, as landlords, one area you do need to strike the right balance is in the level of rent you charge. Too little, and you’re doing yourself a disservice. Too much, and you could haemorrhage tenants — even in this market. This is the subject of our first article. Our second article focuses on the Budget coming up later this month, specifically the submission by ARLA (the Association of Residential Letting Agents) to the Chancellor. What does ARLA think is best for the rentals sector — and is it likely to happen? Our third article asks how on earth prices in the capital, according to the Land Registry, shot up by a logic-defying 2.5% in January. That’s one hell of a leap — so what’s causing prices to rise like that? 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. Best regards, Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
