Life long tenants

Tenants are staying for longer, typically renting homes for a "record" duration of 19 months, the Association of Residential Letting Agents (Arla) said this week.

Great news. The pain of finding new tenants, the cost of advertising, showing them around whilst they kick the metaphorical tyres and suck in their cheeks at a touch of mildew.

The rental void. Urggghhh!

I've got one tenant whose been in one of my flats for nearly twenty years. Twenty years!

I love him like a brother for all the hassle he has saved me. Think about it, if that flat had turned around a new tenancy each year I could of easily lost 20 or 30 days of my life flapping around with letting and check ins, inventories, paper work, refurbishments, cleaning. You don't get those days back you know, each one is a step closer to death.

Tenants forever...........ideally.
