Childless couples are most preferred tenants for landlords
A survey conducted by Intus Lettings has shown that UK landlords believe the perfect tenants are couples with no children. Perhaps unsurprisingly, students have been classed as the least desirable.
In the survey 29% of landlords specified that childless couples top their preferences, with only 1% saying that students are their favourite potential tenant.
Hope McKendrick, lettings manager at Intus Lettings, said, “It’s likely that landlords opted for couples with no dependants due to the stability that it provides. They understand that finding the right tenant can save them time, money and stress in the long term and with the number of people renting continuing to grow, they want to be reassured that those living in their properties are reliable.”
