The latest survey from a specialist landlord insurance firm confirms what many in the industry will have known for a long time – cost and location are the two key factors that influence property choices for more than four out of five tenants. 

– 86 per cent of respondents feel cost is the determining factor when choosing a rental property;

– the same percentage say location is key;

– ease of parking and whether the property has a garden were both classed as equally important by 44 per cent of renters;

– 32 per cent rate getting on with the landlord is less important than the décoration; 

– 20 per cent say pets being allowed is a key factor; 

– two per cent say accessibility is a key influencer.

This survey is twice a year  “There’s been a slight shift in priorities over the last six months, with the cost and location both again being the most important consideration for prospective renters.”

    I've rented through Stuart's for 5 1/2 years and Colin and the team have always been friendly and helpful. Any maintenance required was dealt with quickly and efficiently and I was always kept informed if anyone needed access when I was away from the flat.

    I have recently left the flat which has been my home for the past 5 1/2 years and the leaving process was hassle free and simple and my deposit returned without delay.

    Thanks to everyone at Stuarts for making my rental a pleasant and enjoyable one.

    We have rented through Stuarts Property Services for over 7 years and can’t fault the service. Repairs and enquiries are dealt with very swiftly and hassle free. Communication is excellent with particular thanks to Margaret who is very professional and responds to enquiries in a timely manner. Thanks again Margaret.

    Would highly recommend, not one issue in 7 years which speaks for itself.
