EPC Regulations Are About To Change – Here’s What You Need To Know.

On a mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, the UK government have proposed new EPC regulations. These changes are due to take effect in 2025.

The phased changes will affect new tenancies from 2025 and all existing tenancies from 2028. This may seem a way off, but to comply with the regulations time and money will need to be spent on your property. If you don’t comply, you could face fines of up to £30,000. (more…)

How To Market Your Property For Renting To Young Professionals

Renting to young professionals is a popular approach for many landlords, especially those with HMOs. The alternative would likely be to rent to students, but the simple truth is renting to young professionals is more appealing for a few reasons.

Firstly, you know the tenant is employed, giving you a certain amount of faith your rent will be paid on time. Secondly, this demographic tends to be more house-proud and will therefore likely take good care of your property.

Finally, the type of property that appeals to young professionals is usually in high demand, making renting your rooms, flat or house an easier task. But what is their ‘type’?

Our Property Management Service: The Aegian Bar and Grill on Newland Avenue, Hull

“Welcome to Aegean Taverna where we hope you will have a great time and enjoy good traditional Greek cooking. A Taverna is an integral part of Greek culture. Usually a small Greek Restaurant by tradition, similar to a Tavern where Greeks of all walks of life can go with their families, children or friends and enjoy a good home cooked hearty meal.”

Well the last year or so certainly have not been easy on the hospitality sector – this new restaurant should have been open in early 2020 but instead everything went on hold early Summer!

Our new tenant, Simon, started to rent the property from us in January 2020- the timing could not have been worse for him or ourselves. However, as our communities slowly started to unwrap from this terrible pandemic, work resumed on refurbishing this property on the corner of Newland Avenue in Hull. As we are a property management team in Hull, we were able to help Simon during this challenging time to overcome the obstacles of that would otherwise have been thrown up by dealing with multiple contractors and furloughed companies.

The new Aegean Taverna occupies the building of the once locally famous Pools Corner which was, in it’s heyday a very popular second hand shop. This veritable emporium sold everything from audio equipment to bicycles, lawn mowers to video consoles and reached local legendary status along side the likes of The Adelphi music venue, Sunday lunchtimes at the Piper Club and going to the Tower (for an hour). Prior to Pools Corner the building was occupied by an equally legendary local icon named Les Turner’s that sold supermarket goods as well as seasonal items like Christmas decorations well before Halloween (he was ahead of his time…).


4 Simple Interior Design Ideas To Make Your Rental Stand Out

Just like with the housing market, the interior design of your rental property can make all the difference to how quickly your property lets and to what type of tenant.

If you want your rental property to rent quick, the best way is to make it stand out from the crowd and interior design is the way to do it. At the same time, a tenant who shops around for a nicely decorated property is likely to be planning on staying a while and clearly takes pride in a home, and nothing makes a better tenant than that!


Property Investment Options in 2021

When you think of property investment, you perhaps think of long-term rentals but when you’re considering your 2021 investment strategy, there are more options you should consider.
