Homemade Properties is the clear choice for anyone looking for long-term, secure private sector renting in the UK.
Housing legislation changes in recent decades have removed the security previous generations of renters enjoyed. Since the Housing Act 1996, Tenancy Agreements are often by default Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST's) which can give the landlord the right to possession after just 6 months, with only 2 months notice. Consequently tenants are increasingly forced from their rented homes after short tenures, as private landlords chase quick profits. Furthermore, up to 1 in 50 tenants lose their homes due to repossession for defaulted mortgage payments by their landlord. Of course, many landlords may only be renting their properties short term anyway, maybe over an extended holiday or sabatical.
Homemade Properties does not sell property. As our tenant you have the security of knowing that you can settle into your new home, without fear of notice to vacate. We view our business as a long-term investment and budget accordingly. We do not borrow heavily against our assets unlike businesses gambling everything for speculative rewards. Homemade Properties’ approach requires we commit to our properties and tenants by resolving any issues promptly using reputable contractors.
We turn a property into an investment, but only you can make it a home.
