A two bed semi detached house on Northumberland Way, Walsall, WS2. Listed yesterday, another top notch investment opportunity if you are a Walsall landlord, viewing higly recommended.

My Walsall BTL Deal of the Week, A 2 Bed Semi in WS2 With Yields Of 6.50%

A two bed semi detached house on Nottingham New Road, WS2. This is just a quickie today and if you are a Walsall landlord you need to act on this one NOW!

The property is situated on a very popular estate for rentals. Unfortunately the listing on Zoopla lacks all the necessary photos. There are four and all of the external of the property, nothing internal and the proeprty has been on the market since 02/07/2020, go figure. On the face of it, the property hits all the marks for a rental, but without knowing what the property has to offer visually, it’s a moot point. Therefore, you need to arrange a viewing ASAP!

Walsall Evictions Ban Update: August 2020

 

Walsall Evictions Ban Update - August 2020
Walsall Evictions Ban Update – August 2020

My Blog reading friends may be aware of the ‘eviction ban’ introduced at the start of the pandemic.  The good news is this is being lifted on the 23rd August 2020.

Our government recently announced changes to the eviction processes in England and Wales.  These temporary measures aim to help the courts cope with the influx of possession proceedings once the ‘eviction ban’ is lifted.

The changes include claimants needing to issue a “reactivation notice” to resume halted evictions and will be effective until March 28th, 2021.

Electrical testing law change for Walsall Landlords

Electrical testing law change for Walsall Landlords
Electrical testing law change for Walsall Landlords

As if Walsall landlords and landlords across the country don’t have enough to contend with, new rules on Electrical Inspection Condition Reports (EICR) has kicked in from this month.

In my day job at Ashmore Lettings & Sales, historically we have always advised landlords to conduct this check to obtain a condition report.  Therefore, most of our clients are already ahead of the game.  I have to admit, explaining this to some landlords has been an uphill battle especially, when my colleagues in the industry dissuaded many Walsall landlords to not obtain an EICR.

Here’s an overview of the changes:

My Walsall BTL Deal of the Week, 2 Bed Semi in WS2 With Yields Of 6.0%

Walsall Buy to Let Deal
Walsall Buy to Let Deal

It may be a case of de-ja-vu but I’m pretty certain I went to see this property last year when it was on the market with another agent.  At the time I was sourcing a BTL property for one of my property sourcing clients and knew, with a bit of TLC, this property would make a great rental.  It was snapped up very quickly back then but it seems, for some reason, the sale probably fell through which, can sometimes happen if the buyer is not able to secure a mortgage or arrange the funds etc.  For Walsall landlords this is a perfect property for a long-term BTL.  Listed 3 days ago this two bedroom semi detached house is being marketed at offers over £130k by our colleagues iLove Homes (01922 345905).  Another perfect spec ready for a quick let.  From the pictures and if my memory serves me correct, I would say the property has had an upgrade of the kitchen units and bathroom suite.  The decor looks in good order but I would definitely change the carpet in the lounge and one of the bedroom upstairs to something more hard wearing and neutral.
