In a video interview for Letting Agent Today, property professional Chris Buckler speaks to Mike Dawson, Group Head of Sales at HomeLet and Let Alliance.
He explains why the rental market is becoming more tenant-centric and what impact the end of the furlough scheme could have for letting agents, landlords and tenants.
They also discuss the government’s new Debt Respite Scheme, also known as Breathing Space, which is set to be launched in May.
Dawson also explains the benefits of Rent Guarantee for agents and landlords when it comes to protecting yields when income is under pressure.
He also shares his top tip for letting agents, which is to work with a top-quality referencing provider. Referencing can be seen as a commodity, Dawson says, but it is crucial in making sure landlords and agents choose the right renters, particularly in the face of rising tenant fraud.
