Not everyone realises that there is no law to stop an agent spending tenants’ deposits or landlords’ rents. Nor do they realise that many agents use tenants’ rents and deposits to run their businesses or enhance their lifestyle to a different level!Read more
Keeping abreast of 145 rules and laws covering the lettings industry!
Date: 21st April 2016 | Author: Judith Davis
Last Tuesday saw the 21st Annual conference of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) held at Excell - the largest conference and exhibition centre in Europe. There are now over 8,000 members of ARLA which is the biggest professional Lettings association in the UK and the conference saw may 100s of them attend the exhibition and hear the speakers and join in the sometimes heated discussions. With the vast amount of ever changing Lettings legislation it is imperative that companies and landlords keep abreast of the laws and guidelines and being a member of ARLA is one way to be sure a tenancy stays within the strict legislative framework.Read more
Lettings industry tightens up
Date: 8th October 2015 | Author: Alan Davis
Many landlords elect to use an agent to let and manage their properties because of the rapidly changing legislative environment. The environment just became rather more harsh with new requirements on landlords to issue specific paperwork and prescribed information at the tenancy start. There is also a new need to behave in a much more controlled manner, and with a tightly administered paper trail to back up the actions of the landlord when maintenance issues arise.Read more

If your property is managed by an agent, have they advised you and dealt with this for you? If you are managing your property yourself, are you aware of these issues and how we could help you?Read more
So what is the rental market like at the moment?
Date: 14th August 2015 | Author: Alan Davis
This is a question we are asked at Penyards Property Management on a daily basis by prospective and current landlords. In early 2015 the rental market was strong and we were letting many more properties than during the same period in 2014. As we moved into the election period during April and early May this year, as predicted, the market slowed a little as both landlords and tenants became cautious as to what the election might bring.Read more
