Three Bedder Into Eight Bedder

Recommended Posts

Imagine how bad it must be for the next door neighbours especially if some or all of the tenants have cars.

This is a very relevant point......the same as when a street was full of OO slowly becomes a street of a high turnover of renters.....the same renters that at one time would have bought, but now no longer can do even if they wanted to...new people who live in places they have no stake in, therefore no pride in, therefore no care for...... ;)

This is happening where I live. Combination of renters and driving age children still being at home

It's becoming less and less of a problem here. Amongst the owner occupiers, driving age children can't afford to buy or run a car and couples are increasing giving up on two cars. Some renters often can't afford cars either, so three sharing usually doesn't mean three cars.

Mind, we do live fairly close to the centre of a city, so people can cope by using car share, public transport, bikes and taxis. Also, the area is very much "squeezed middle".

Also, although the headline says 8 bed semi, the introductory sentence reads

"iHomes of Bournemouth offer this house arranged as 3 self contained flats for investment".

So the usual carving up of decent-sized Victorian/Edwardian houses into teeny tiny flats.

The houses in the worst nick in my street, by a country mile, are owned outright. They both need completely gutted if the exterior condition is indicative of what lies within.

I don't really care if a person decides they'd rather not paint their windows or do any gardening whatsoever btw(although it is a bit obnoxious to leave shared hedges to be maintained entirely by the neighbours), but the idea that owners treat their places better than many tenants is open to some debate imo.

.....long-term secured tenancy in a self contained property, sure would agree there is not a lot in it.....but a high multiple occupancy property with a high turnover of tenants I think you will find the picture is not quite so sweet.....you might well find that all the owner is interested in is the collection of rent, not the other neighbours. ;)
