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.”

    Stuarts offer the most efficient service I have experienced by far, but with an added personal touch. They are a close team and this produces excellent results in terms of clear communication and process. They are also just warm and kind individuals who go out of their way to make your life easier. I'll always be grateful for them taking the stress out of my move. I would never go anywhere else!

    We moved to U.K in 2015 and it was our first rented property. The whole process was carried out in friendly and smooth way. We rented the property for more than 2 yrs and we were facilitated and dealt in very effective, efficient and professional way. Unfortunately land lord decided to sale the property so we have to find a new place. The move out process is as smooth and clearly communicated as the move in was. We would certainly recommend Stuart properties and would love to seek their assistance in future. Special thanks to Colin and his team who were always there for us. Warm personal regards from our family!

    We lived in a property let by Stuarts for just over two years and there were absolutely no negative experiences with them at all. we had an issue with a shower that was dealt with extremely quickly and the communication between the time we reported the fault and the time it was fixed was outstanding.
    Stuarts delt with any quiries we had very quickly and were quick to reply to any emails that we sent them. As first time renters we had plenty of questions and no matter how small they were always answered in a polite and friendly manner. From start to finish they were great.
