I think most landlords will appreciate it's better to keep tenants and keep them happy as opposed to pass on interst rate increases. Void periods are costly. That said, when tenants leave of their own accord I imagine most landlords will re-let at the going market rate.....this is probably the moment to increase rents to cover extra interest. Like Dorset, Brighton and Hove is crazy as well.
I hadn't thought of that. I guess it preferable to have a good tenant who pays on time and stays longer term and take a lower profit.
It's just crazy round here there 150k people in Poole yet there's currently only nine 3 bed houses available to rent on rightmove. No wonder prices are so high.
