Private landlords on tenterhooks bracing for yet another attack?

One landlord = several/many tennants. Tennants traditionally vote labour, the Conservatives know this. Therefore they need to ensure a certain level of home ownership. Too many tennants = labour government.

What with the tax rises required for COVID recovery, I'm still suprised there are so many people complaining on this thread.

How house prices are affected with tenants in situ?

This all seems pretty obvious, of course selling with a tenant insitu both cuts down the amount of potential buyers and increases the potential risks for the successful purchaser over that of a vacant property.

Yes, the new purchaser may benefit from no voids, but at what potential cost?

As for the increase in price, well, if the cashflow hasn't increased (or can't be increased) to maintain the same yeild, then that's just the seller trying to screw as much capital appreciation out of the transaction as possible........this isn't rocket science!!!!... Read More
