why do i need an inventory? it’s just walls and carpets, there is no furniture in the property.

An inventory is a list of all items in the property, the walls, flooring, fixtures & fittings are just as important as any furniture as these can still be damaged by the tenant. Once a tenancy has come to an end we conduct an inspection based on the original inventory to establish whether the tenant has caused any damage above fair wear and tear in order to recover any costs to rectify the issues from their deposit.

If you have a question big or small email with the Subject Ask Jonathan, looking forward to hearing from you.

How many new homes have been built in the local area?

New housing is a hotly debated subject in the UK. Despite the recent uptick in building rates, demand continues to outstrip supply and more affordable homes need to be built. The situation has improved over the last few years; the number of new homes started and finished in the UK is at a nine-year high. However, forecasts show that England alone needs to build 50 per cent more homes to keep up with demand, so the issue is far from resolved. The pressure is mounting on the government to find a solution.

156,140 new homes were registered for construction in 2015, the highest it has been in eight years. This was half a per cent higher than the previous year and 45 per cent higher than 2009

From 2014 to 2015, private sector starts increased by seven per cent, while Housing Association starts rose by five per cent. That means that since the credit crunch in 2008, the UK housing stock has grown by around five percent, which is no small feat.
