After a fairly slow start to the year and tenants staying put, the last six weeks have certainly picked up; we think the weather might have had something to do with this. We’re seeing a lot of activity in the rental sector and very strong demand for all types of properties between one and three bedrooms.

Hopefully we keep this improving weather, and everybody is looking forward to a sunny bank holiday weekend!!

We have seen a fairly slow start on the rental market this year. I feel it is down to a number of reasons; firstly, that the weather has been so wet in the first few months of the year and that has not motivated people to move. 

This newsletter was going to be on the new Data Protection Regulations coming in to force in May but, the course date has changed, and I will now be attending this next week.  For this newsletter I will be revisiting Gas Safety Certificates.

I would imagine some of you have heard this being bandied around in different industries and professions over the past few months. 

This is a very important area of what we do; the Marketing of your property and the right way to market your property, which enables us to find you the right tenants.

The world has changed so much in the last 10 to 15 years. As an example, our busiest day in the office 15 years ago would have been a Saturday, as the majority of people worked Monday to Friday and came in looking for properties on a Saturday. I would say now that Saturday is the quietest day of the week due to changing work patterns.
