When there is a glut in the housing market, it means that there are lots more houses than buyers and this has a knock on effect on the renting market. There will always be people needing somewhere to live, perhaps they have moved out of their parents’ home or they’ve finished at university and now need to live near the job. There are always houses available on the renting market but they need looking after and updating to ensure compliance with all the current regulations for renting out. This is particularly important if the house is split up to make several flats and thus be a house of multi occupancy. This subject needs very careful handling and using an agency that deals with maintenance and property development will have the up to date information to tap into.
