Landlords are largely maintaining a good relationship with those who have taken out a tenancy agreement to rent their property, a new survey reveals.
The National Landlords Association (NLA) found that 61 per cent of landlords have a very good relationship with their tenants, while 34 per cent would describe it as good.
Less than one per cent, on the other hand, said their dealings with renters are poor.
NLA chairman David Salusbury commented: "The best way to ensure good relations between the tenant and landlord is to ensure the right tenant is selected for the property."
He noted that the best way to achieve this is to meet a prospective tenant before a tenancy agreement download is made and money exchanges hands.
Mr Salusbury also emphasised the need for constant communication to be made between a landlord and their tenants.
