House prices see strongest rise since 2007

September has seen the strongest rise in house prices in 14 years, according to the Halifax. This has pushed values to a new record high.

Last month, the average cost of a home rose by 1.7 per cent, or £4,425. This means that the average UK property price now stands at £267,587.

“The average house price is now as expensive as it ever has been,” said Russell Galley, the managing director of Halifax.

Prices are up by more than £18,000 since last September and almost £28,000 higher than last June when the housing market reopened after the first COVID lockdown.

This is likely to have been down to the “race for space” as many people looked to up-size with a change of lifestyle following COVID.

There is also still a major supply shortage with properties coming to market. This is creating a bidding war with potential buyers and pushing house prices up further.

Due to this, Walton & Allen are seeing major interest in all properties coming to market.

Nottingham house prices

12 month price growth

Looking at Nottingham specifically, house prices have risen by 7.3 per cent in the last twelve months (Hometrack). To put this into perspective, this is now how much your property could be worth since September 2020.

£150,000 > £160,950 (+£10,950)
£250,000 > £268,250 (+£18,250)
£350,000 > £375,550 (+£25,550)
£450,000 > £482,850 (+£32,850)
£550.000 > £590,150 (£+40,150)

10 year price growth

Looking at data from Zoopla, the average Nottingham property price is now £183,188. Ten years ago this price stood at £102,946 – an increase of 53.13 per cent! If you bought a property around 2011 then this could be how much it is now worth:

£50,000 > £76,565 (+£26,565)
£100,000 > £153,130 (+£53,130)
£200,000 > £306,260 (+£106,260)
£300,000 > £459,390 (+£159,390)
£400,000 > £612,520 (+£212,520)

    Lettings notice period length changes

    From 1st October 2021, notice periods for both Section 21 and Section 8 Notices in England will revert to pre-pandemic lengths.

    However, should the future public health situation worsen again, the UK Government retains the ability to reapply longer notice periods until 25th March 2022.

    New forms are to be issued on 1st October, which can be obtained from the Gov.UK website.

    It has been a difficult 18 months for many landlords and tenants across the country and Walton & Allen has worked hard to maintain tenancies during the pandemic. Going forward, the lettings team will work closely with both landlords and tenants to ensure rents are paid on time and tenants continue to have a roof over their heads.

    House prices 13 per cent higher than pre-pandemic levels

    House prices are now 13 per cent higher than before the COVID-19 pandemic. This has defied all predictions of a housing market crash and has even continued past the end of the stamp duty holiday.

    This is according to Robert Gardner, Nationwide’s chief economist.

    In August, the average UK house price rose to £248,857, a huge increase of over £5,000.

    Despite the large jump in value, some people looking to move are still reluctant to place their house on the market. This means demand is massively outweighing supply and creating a bidding war between buyers.

    Mortgage rates have also dropped dramatically, meaning buyers have confidence to go after the property of their dreams.

    Historic property price changes

    The graph below details how property prices have changed since 2007.

    The huge dip in 2008 related to the credit crunch and it was expected that there would be another dip during the pandemic.

    In reality, the graph shows one of the steepest rises in prices in the last 14 years.

        Nottingham Selective Licensing: What you need to know

        < Back to W&A Nottingham Selective Licensing Hub

        Nottingham Selective Licensing

        Find out everything you need to know on Nottingham Selective Licensing.

        Nottingham City Council introduced Selective Licensing in August 2018 which covers 90% of homes in the private rental sector within the city boundary. The cost of a licence is £890 per property which lasts for five years.

        Nottingham City Council provided an update on the scheme in August 2021. Read the Selective Licensing update.

        A licence is a legal requirement and each rental property you own will need one. You must now have a licence to rent your property within designated Nottingham City Council areas. If you have not submitted an application already then you may now be liable for a £30,000 fine.

        The application deadline was 1st August 2018 for most Landlords. Extensions were granted to those with 40+ properties or to letting agents with a portfolio of over 120 properties which would submit applications on behalf of their Landlord clients.

        If you have recently purchased a property within the licensing area then you must apply for a licence before you move tenants in.

        Keep calm though, we can help you with the information below.

        Is your current Letting Agent doing everything they can for you?

        Has your current Letting Agent done everything they can to help you in applying for your Selective Licence? Have they kept you informed about Licensing requirements and applied for your Licence well within the deadline? Are they ensuring you will remain fully compliant within the 5 years? If not, talk to us to receive free Selective Licensing advice. Call 0115 9243304 or email nsl@waltonandallen.co.uk.

        Struggling with your application?

        Is everything too complicated or do you not understand anything on the Selective Licensing application form? We can apply for you. Call 0115 9243304 now to take all the stress away or view the below brochure to find out more.

        What happens if I don’t apply?

        Nottingham City Council have stated that they will begin to fine Landlords up to £30,000 if they do not have a licence for their rented property. We understand the Council have started checking council tax records, Land Registry and housing benefit records to find those who have not applied. If you have not begun applying for a Selective Licence then we would recommend doing this immediately.

        The new Nottingham licensing scheme for Landlords was implemented as of 1st August 2018. The aim of the scheme is to ‘raise the standards in the privately rented sector, and to ensure that all tenants living in them are able to enjoy a safe, comfortable and well managed home’. A landlord will need a licence for every property they own within the affected areas.

        This is a big blow for Landlords who already keep privately rented properties to a high standard.

        We calculate that 94% of Landlords will be affected by this Licensing Scheme.

        Should I have applied by now?

        Anyone who owns a privately rented home in the designated Nottingham areas should have applied for a licence by now. If you have recently purchased a buy to let property and it falls within the Licensing area then you must apply before you move a tenant in.

        Applications for Selective Licensing opened on 1st July 2018.

        Is my property in the Selective Licensing area?

        Visit the below website and enter your rental property postcode to find out if you are within the licensing area.
        http://geoserver.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/myproperty/

        The designated areas  for Nottingham Selective Licensing is as follows:

        Arboretum, Bestwood, Bulwell, Bulwell Forest, Basford, Berridge, Bridge, Clifton North, Clifton South, Dales, Dunkirk and Lenton, Leen Valley, Mapperley, Radford and Park, Sherwood, St Ann’s, Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey.

        Gedling Borough Council have also started a Licensing scheme for the Netherfield area.

        What is the cost?

        Nottingham City Council is charging a Nottingham Selective Licensing fee of £890 per property. This is reduced to £670 if a Landlord is accredited by DASH or Unipol. At the time of writing, the cost of the licence is tax deductible.

        The licence is paid for in two parts. The first payment is £520 (£485 for accredited Landlords) and is paid when you submit your application via the Council website. The second amount payable is £370 (£185 for accredited Landlords) and is payable once the full licence has been granted.

        You will of course have to factor in other costs which will help you achieve ‘approval’ for a licence. This includes the cost for:

        • Public liability insurance
        • A DBS check (now voluntary)
        • An electrical safety certificate (optional but advisable)
        • A valid gas safety certificate
        • An EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) -Above an ‘F’ rating
        • A PAT test for portable appliances in the property
        • Relevant Landlord training (if your property is not managed by Walton & Allen)

        selective licensing mailing list

        What does the licence involve?

        When applying for a Selective Licence you need to prove that you are a ‘fit and proper’ Landlord. You also need to show that your property is suitable for tenants to live in. Nottingham City Council will ask for relevant documentation and information relating to each property.

        Read more information on the Selective Licensing conditions.

        Walton & Allen Letting Agents Nottingham handle all Licensing conditions on your behalf if your property is managed by us. If you are concerned that you cannot continue to meet the licensing requirements on your own then talk to us to see how we can support you.

        What if you don’t have a licence?

        The council also state that anyone who hasn’t applied for a licence could receive a civil penalty of up to £30,000, or prosecution on summary conviction which carries an unlimited maximum fine. Landlords may also be prevented from holding a licence in the future.

        Can you get a fee reduction?

        Nottingham City Council have said there will be no discount for having multiple properties. The full licence fee must be paid for every property you own in the affected areas. You can get a discounted fee by applying to certain accreditation bodies such as DASH or Unipol. Unfortunately, there are other costs to apply and you may have to spend money in improving your property to meet their standards.

        We detail how to get a fee reduction here.

        Don’t have your property managed  by Walton & Allen? Email nsl@waltonandallen.co.uk to talk to us about how we can help you stay complaint. We’ll also try to match your current managing agent’s fees.

        Nottingham Landlords who live abroad

        Non UK landlords will not be able to qualify for a licence and so will need a managing agent to be the ‘licence holder’. We can take that responsibility for these individuals, but only on a fully managed basis. This is because there are significant responsibilities during the 5 year licence period. Monitoring is required, including rent collection and reactions to Nottingham City Council requests during that time. E.g. tenant antisocial behaviour.

        What are your next steps for Selective Licensing?

        Walton & Allen can help you. We have experience of Selective Licensing requirements as we have helped Landlords get licences within the Ashfield District Council area in North Nottinghamshire. As of the time of writing we have submitted over 350 applications to the City Council on behalf of our Landlord clients.

        We can advise on the following:

          • Learn the requirements of getting a licence
          • Learn the steps you need to take to retain the licence
          • Have the opportunity to ask any questions about the scheme

        Need help filling in your Selective Licensing application form?

        We can do it for you. Email nsl@waltonandallen.co.uk to take away all the stress. For us to undertake this process you will need to be a fully managed Landlord client.

        Nottingham Selective Licensing Update 2021

        Nottingham City Council have conducted a mid-scheme review on Selective Licensing as we move into year four of the scheme.

        Their review consists of a 12 page document which can be read via the Council’s website. However, Walton & Allen letting agents have lifted some key points which may be of interest to our landlords and future clients.

        Enforcement action

        Since August 2018 when the scheme first began, the Council have issued multiple penalty notices and prosecuted landlords for non compliance. The full breakdown is as follows:

        • 53 civil penalty notices (CPNs), 37 of which were failure to apply for a licence
        • 13 landlords prosecuted for 49 offences at 30 properties (however, only 27 of these offences related to the licensing scheme)
        • 4607 landlords issued with legal notices requiring them to provide information
        • 75 formal written warnings issued in 2020 during Covid-19 lockdown (66 of which relate to licensing)
        • 916 letters sent during Covid-19 to encourage applications
        • 3 Rent Repayment Order* determinations in relation to properties unlicensed (2 landlords over 3 properties)

        *A Rent Repayment Order can be issued to any landlord who does not hold a licence and is required to do so. This involves the landlord having to repay all rent received during their tenancy back to the tenant.

        New applications continue

        The Council have stated that “despite the significant amount of awareness raising were [sic] is still a large number of landlords that have not applied for a licence and applications continue to be received at approximately 200 per month”.

        Walton & Allen understands that these continued applications may also be as a result of property sales. Licenses are non transferable and a new owner must apply for a new Selective Licence.

        Safety certificates

        The Council are conducting regular checks on safety certificates. All properties managed for landlords on behalf of Walton & Allen have all the relevant safety certificates in place. If your EICR, Gas Safety Certificate, or EPC is due to expire then it is a legal requirement to ensure these are renewed.

        Increase in EPCs

        The Council have stated that Selective Licensing has seen a huge increase in properties obtaining an up to date Energy Performance Certificate. Nottingham now has the highest proportion of properties with a valid EPC in the whole country at 70.9 per cent. Just behind sits Manchester with 67.5 per cent and Bristol with 60.1 per cent.

        Anti-social behaviour

        A major focus for the Council within the Selective Licensing scheme is tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB). When the council receives an ASB complaint, a landlord will be notified but not expected to respond. If a second complaint is received within 12 months then the landlord will be contacted again and expected to discuss what steps can be taken to resolve the issues.

        Smoke alarms

        Visits to unlicensed properties have uncovered some disrepair and in particular it has been noted that some smoke alarm systems are not working or are completely absent from the property. It is a legal requirement for landlords to install a smoke alarm on every floor of a property and a carbon monoxide alarm in every room with a solid fuel burning appliance. The landlord is also required to ensure these are working at the start of every tenancy. All properties managed for landlords by Walton & Allen comply with smoke alarm regulations.

        Living conditions improve

        Property compliance inspections have proven to be successful. In one case, for example, vulnerable tenants were living with only two gas fires to heat their entire home. The landlord upgraded the property with gas central heating.

        Licensing fee review

        There was a Selective Licensing fee increase in March 2020. Prices rose from £780 to £890 for a five year licence. Nottingham City Council stated that the previous fees were not high enough to cover their overheads, despite having the highest licencing costs compared to every other scheme in the country.

        The Council estimates that, at the current rate, licencing applications could total 28,000 by the end of the scheme. Using the current fee structure, with no accreditation discount, this would total almost £25,000,000 in fees for the Council.

        At the time of writing there is no plan to increase fees further although this is being reviewed periodically.

        Future inspections

        The council aims to have inspected 50% of non-accredited properties by the end of the scheme (2023). Non-accredited properties are those managed by landlords who are not accredited by DASH or Unipol.

        Based on the figures provided in the Council review report, Walton & Allen estimates 50% of non-accredited applications to be 5610. In March 2020 the Council reported to have inspected 600 properties internally. This means there are 5010 properties left to inspect in the next two years.

        Some key stats

        Inspections conducted up to March 2020 (Pre-lockdown)
        Properties inspected – 660
        Properties improved – intervention 202

          Eviction rule changes

          The government have now changed eviction rules, effective from 1st June 2021. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, rules were changed which meant landlords have to give tenants a six month notice period. This notice period covered every situation, even if a tenant was not paying rent.  Whilst this was helpful for many tenants, some landlords expressed concern.

          Now the UK is slowly easing lockdown restrictions and the eviction rules have also changed. Some notice periods have reduced, however they are not yet returning to the same pre-pandemic levels.

          As of 1st June, notice periods that were at six months have now reduced to four months. The following will apply:

          Anti-social behaviour will reduce to 4 weeks’ notice and domestic abuse in the social sector will reduce to 2-4 weeks’ notice. In addition, false statement will reduce to  2 to 4 weeks’ notice.

          If the tenant has been in arrears for over 4 months’ then 4 weeks’ notice can now be given.  A breach of immigration rules will reduce to 2 weeks’ notice and the death of tenant 2 months’ notice.

          Where there is over four months of rent arrears, the notice period will reduce to two months from 1st August 2021. 

          Housing Minister, Chris Pincher said “The measures will ensure renters continue to be protected with longer notice periods for the coming months, while allowing landlords to access justice – 45 per cent of private landlords own just one property and are highly vulnerable to rent arrears.”

          In March 2020 the UK government also introduced a ban on bailiff-enforced evictions. This ban has also now been lifted, meaning many landlords can begin to reposess properties with problem tenants.

          The government have been working towards making the private rented sector better for tenants for some time.

          Later this year they will be conducting a full review of Section 21 evictions, meaning the future of repossessing property could be re-shaped completely.
