UK Fully Managed Investments

UK property investors are looking to invest in fully managed property investments according to a new survey.

Conducted by PropertyLetByUs, the survey found that more than 85% of property purchasers would rather use a letting agent than manage a property themselves. Furthermore, 90% expressed that they were unhappy with tenants contacting them directly regarding the property and any issues that they may have with it.


This trend is reflected in the number of properties that are now managed or operated by lettings agents and specialist management companies. According to the study, 60% of landlords pay for all repairs within a property themselves, whilst 10% believed that tenants should be charged for small maintenance tasks.


With an increasing number of property investment purchasers choosing to elect a management company, there has been a shift in the market away from landlords self-managing properties such as residential houses, choosing instead to invest in residential or student blocks as a means of generating capital, without the responsibility of maintenance or repair.


By selecting a fully managed property, these purchasers are able to remove some of the additional stress that can be a factor in investments, with many over-55s electing to follow this path to minimise inconvenience to them.
