Time To Slash The Rents

Recommended Posts

For what it is worth we have just secured a new rental property here in leafy Berkshire, desirable area by the river. Got 20% off the original asking price, which spookily enough, is exactly the same as we got off our current place. Just missed out on another at 30% off the ask , got snatched from under our noses by a company let .... guess the money doesnt matter to them so much. The really irritating thing is that we were the only interested party the Landlord had seen in 3 months until the company let pitched up.

Anyway the message is clear , there is plenty of scope for negotiating rents down.

Needless to say the agent advertised the property as LET at the orignial asking price ...... t****rs.

Doh .......... Im jealous now ....... 40% you jammy bugger ... no really well done. we're renting something that I guess would be in the 800k range at 1800 so you obviously did a little better than we did, nice one.

Woops Apocalypse ....... would you mind telling me where exactly in Berkshire ? For the record we are renting in Cookham village on the river.

i almost rented a place 4 weeks ago. it was a private let who i ment when selling my other car. he said i could have it, but it was with some letting agency. he would get out of that. next thing i get app forms sent by this letting agent, who now wants more than i agreed. i said no.

the owner didnt take my offer and stuck with the agent.

i went past other day and rent is reduced and its still EMPTY...
