I am getting more and more enquiries from my blog reading friends on some technical aspects of property management. In the past I’ve avoided writing about these types of questions on the Blog by answering them directly. I find writing about the Walsall property market more interesting but people power has to prevail and I feel I must provide the readership what they seek.

There are various reasons why you may need to recover possession of your rental property. Below is an enquiry I received recently and my answer. Hope you find it informative and as always I welcome your feedback. Do let me know if you have any burning questions you would like me to answer in a similar vein and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

Question:

‘Dear Salek,

I rented my property out when I moved into my husband’s house about 6 years ago and we are now going through a divorce. I need my property back as I need to move in as soon as possible, so I know I will need to evict the current tenants. How do I correctly serve a notice?

Thank you,

Sue.


My Response:

I am sorry to hear about the situation you are in. You are not on your own; this does happen from time to time. There are two types of legal notices you can serve your tenants dependent upon the circumstances. The commonly known Section 8 Notice is the one you would use if the tenant owed you more than 2 months’ rent arrears however, as this reason is not applicable to you I will talk about the other form of legal notice called a Section 21 notice.

A three bedroom end terraced house, Holford Avenue, Bescot, Walsall, WS2. This property is presented very nicely and with a very acceptable spec. It can be let as it currently stands though I would take a closer look at the rear garden, it could do with some sprucing up. The property type and high standard of spec makes it ideal for working professionals.This is further strengthened by its location about half a mile from M6 junction 9, ideal for commuting. For the frustrated footballer in all of us, Bescot stadium is but a short 10 minute stroll away. The return journey could be a little longer if the Saddlers lose that Saturday. For your weekly shopping supplies look no further than the large Morrisons superstore just around the corner. It has a petrol forecourt as well…Handy!

The current asking price is around £130k and based on a rental of £625.00 pcm will return a yield of 5.77%. It ticks all the boxes; double glazing, gas central heating modern fitted kitchen and bathroom. Additionally, the off-road parking and the location always adds a little of a “wow” factor. Make no mistake, this property is the full package and immediately lettable.

A good 18 months has passed since annual rental price inflation in Walsall peaked at 10.7% (June 2016). Since then we have seen increasingly more humble rent increases to 7.3% in November 2017. In fact, in certain parts of the Walsall rental market over the autumn, the rental market saw some slight falls in rents. So, could this be the earliest indication that the trend of high rent increases seen over the last few years, may now be starting to buck that trend?

Well, possibly in the short term, but in the coming few years, it is my opinion Walsall rents will regain their upward trend and continue to increase as demand for Walsall rental property will outstrip supply, and this is why…

The way I see it is this…the counterbalance to that improved rental growth would be to meaningfully increase rental stock (i.e. the number of rental properties in Walsall). However, because of the Government’s new taxes on landlords being introduced between 2017 and 2021, that means buy-to-let has (and will) be less attractive in the short term for certain types of landlords resulting in fewer new properties being purchased to rent out.
