London brings down rents / Countrywide

Letting agents Countrywide put UK annual rental growth at just 1.1%, at £950pcm in June. 

Countrywide's Johnny Morris comments on their figures -

“Falls in London were off-set by higher growth across the rest of the country. The fall in the capital was driven by lower rents in the outer areas of London as the ripple effect from falling rents in Central London continues”

Here's their regional breakdown of monthly rents / annual growth (June 2016 to June 2017)
  • Greater London, £1,673, down 0.8%
  • East of England: £931, up 2.8%
  • South East England: £1,022, up 1.1%
  • South West England: £786,up 4.6%
  • Midlands: £665, up 2.3%
  • North: £628, up 2.3%
  • Scotland: £632, up 1.4%
  • Wales: £645, up 0.1%

Stoke landlord charged with harassment

A Stoke landlord has pleaded guilty to a charge of harassment by North Staffordshire Justice Centre.

The court heard that Mr Nathan Shipley had changed the front door lock and tried to remove windows and doors to prevent his existing tenants from re-entering the property without first securing the required court order.

Mr Shipley apologised for his actions, pleading that they resulted from frustration, following the tenant's failure to respond to his demands for more than 6 months of unpaid rents.

The court handed Mr Shipley a court bill totalling £2,802.

Bradford landlord fined £11,400

landlord fined
Bradford landlord, Hasan Kazi has been fined £11,400.

Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court heard evidence regarding the disrepair at a block of 11 flats managed by Mr Kazi.

Near the University of Bradford, the flats were inspected by an Environmental Health officer from Bradford Council who described tenants as living in 'slum conditions'.

The council gave evidence of a long list of failings: blocked fire exits, faulty smoke detectors, exposed electrical socket connectors, dangerous light fittings, holes in the fabric of the building, a cracked bath.

The court also heard description of the unacceptable level of filth and mess at the block.

Mr Kazi pleaded guilty to failing to keep clear the fire escapes, failing to maintain the internal structure to a good repair, failing to maintain fixtures and fittings, and not having his name address and telephone number displayed clearly at the property.

Alongside the fine, Mr Kazi was told to pay a £170 victim surcharge and Bradford Council's costs of £2,740.

Halifax's HPI sees quarterly fall




Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, said:

“House prices have flattened over the past three months. Overall, prices in the three months to June were marginally lower than in the preceding three months. The annual rate of growth has fallen, to 2.6%; the lowest rate since May 2013.

Although employment levels continue to rise, household finances face increasing pressure as consumer prices grow faster than wages. This, combined the new stamp duty on buy to let and second homes in 2016, appears to have weakened housing demand in recent months.

A continued low mortgage rate environment, combined with an ongoing acute shortage of properties for sale should help continue to underpin house prices over the coming months.”
