Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day from all of us at Landlord Referencing Services!

Sticking with the love & romance theme I've just read an article in the Landlord & Buy-to-Let Magazine (Issue 30, 2012) that "renting is the favoured option for 2012, as tenants believe buying a property will heighten their stress levels and ruin their relationships / sex lives."

According to the statistical findings by conveyancing firm In-Deed;

"60 % of people who had bought or sold a house in the last 3 months thought the experience had aged them by two years."

Many also reported:

  • hair loss

  • short-term memory failure

  • and diminished sex drive.

Amongst work, debt, giving birth & relationship problems buying property also rates highly amongst the most stressful experiences in life.

With the UK now adopting a very European approach to renting via our current uncertain economy, in the sense that Europeans tend to rent for much longer -

I was just wondering what YOUR opinions & experiences are on this?

 

  • Are you a tenant that agrees with these findings? Or disagree? – WHY?

  • Are you a landlord / letting agent that agrees? Or disagrees? – WHY?

  • Are you neither, but still have something to say about it?

Hi All

I think this is a good one and lol at Chris's comment!  

I would tend to agree as there is a lot of stress that comes with being a home owner, I do think that tenants are very lucky (providing they have a good Landlord) in that they don't have so much to worry about and they are only tied to a property for the duration of their tenancy; which means they can move around without having to put down roots until they choose to do so.

We all know that there is a whole lot more renting than buying these days. Though the demands and processes are very different in terms of degree of commitments and ramifications, yet letting still takes its toll on the parties, particularly the tenants.

 

Some are still not fully unpacked and settled in after two weeks of moving in, with the resultant dis-organisation and misplacement of even important documents.

They are often so stressed that they miss up figures, ask irrelevant questions, and ask the same questions again. Some get confused and back out of the deal, only to ring up a few days later asking if the property is still available.

 

We've even had a couple who paid a holding deposit for a flat in Lewisham. Some days later, the guy rang up to say they were not going ahead and that they have gone their separate ways! What it the stress? I don't know. But, I answered that call.

 

It is stressful for them all, but I guess different people deal with the stress differently.

 

Enough about the stress, now go out and show someone (or, people) some love -it's Valentine's Day!
