Across the UK most commentators predict 2017 will see an increase in demand for rental properties, well maintained properties in London could see growth of up to 3%. The new year is off to a flying start and we have noted a substantial upsurge in tenant registrations since the end of December and beginning of January.  To meet the demand we need more property, we are offering Landlords very competitive rates to Let their property in January.
 
Overall 2016 has been a record breaking year with more properties being let than ever before.
 
Despite the changes in Lettings to Landlords with amendment to taxation and stamp duty, the Lettings Market remains a highly favourable investment for many people.
 
With interest rates being historically low, the return on investment compared to banks is excellent.  In addition, a recent Rightmove commissioned report states that property prices in London will increase by 32.5% over the next five years!
 
Whilst monthly rents have remained stable over the last 12 months, tenants are looking to remain in a property for longer periods than before.
 
Ellisons Lettings and Management have won more customer service awards in 2016 as voted by the general public.  Our fifth office, which we opened in Colliers Wood in March 2016, now gives us coverage in Wimbledon, Morden, Raynes Park, Colliers Wood, Tooting and Earlsfield.
 
The key to Ellisons’ success is our straight forward approach, speedy marketing, consistent feedback and high profile advertising on Rightmove and Zoopla.  Ellisons is ARLA registered and members of the Tenants Deposit Scheme.
 
As a special offer for Landlords, all properties let with Ellisons in January, February and March 2017, will benefit from a 50% reduction in a Rental Protection Policy, protecting landlords against loss of rent and legal fees.
