The Establishment Strikes Back – Leave.EU

7857276 orig

Was this the week the establishment fought back? If so, it did little to impede Brexit’s onward trajectory. Perhaps, feeling that the fall in sterling had softened the public’s determination and emboldened by Donald Trump’s tapes the Remainiacs thought it opportune to launch a counter-offensive in the name of sense and sovereignty. If so, it had little effect. ?

Number of properties available to rent trebles in PCL

Apartment

The number of properties available to rent in PCL has trebled over the last three months to 24,761, up from 8,834 in the previous three months
Newly refurbished properties have performed best, with new lets achieving a 3.6% uplift over anticipated rents
Of these, small properties remain the most attractive with weekly rents now averaging £460 for one bedroom units, a 5.3% increase over anticipated rents
Two bedroom units have also performed well with weekly rents now averaging £700, a 1.5% increase over anticipated rents
Re-lets for older properties, however, have remained static due to the increasingly high level of competition
This has been compensated by renewal increases of 3.1% from tenants in-situ who are electing to remain in their properties rather than move.

Many landlords have opted to let their properties rather than sell them in the current market where vendors are seeing deep discounts. Over the last 3 months, the number of properties to let has increased nearly 3 times from 8,834 in the previous 3 months to 24,761, according to industry website Lonres.
