Dear Landlords: How many applications would you normally have to process before finding a secure Tenant?
We’re currently up to 32 and have followed up all of them, but none of the applicants so far has the necessary finance or solidity, for us to be able to accept. Not being picky, honestly - but the people who are coming forward don’t seem to have the money to be able to rent & manage even a small house.
The rent is low compared with the rest of the UK. We’ve rented out before, with little trouble in finding the right person.
Is it just a bad time at the moment?
