Landlords urged to respond to tenant demands
An increasing number of tenants are demanding extra services as part of their tenancy agreements
, so landlords really need to do all they can to stay ahead of the game, an expert has said.
As it becomes more difficult to get on the property ladder, chief executive officer of Upad.co.uk James Davies highlighted that more people will be seeking to rent rather than buy.
"There has been a dynamic shift towards tenant requests being interested in a type of property, so requests for Wi-Fi, cleaning and security and that is becoming the norm rather than the exception," he commented.
Mr Davies emphasised that landlords can no longer afford to rent sub-standard properties as people demand more for their money.
Research from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks recently showed that 84 per cent of first-time buyers request financial help from their parents when it comes to buying their first home.
