Summer prompts a move to the coast for Britain’s retirees keen to downsize and rent in a retirement community

Longer and lighter days make summer the perfect time for Britain’s retirees to embark on their dream of coastal living. My Future Living, the UK’s leading retirement rentals brand, is encouraging retirees considering downsizing and renting in a retirement community to explore the benefits of coastal living.

Recent data from Pegasus highlights a shift in attitudes towards downsizing, with those aged 55-65 most inclined to downsize (88%), compared to 8% of those aged 66-75[i]. Additionally, research by the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) suggests that the number of pensioners renting could double by 2041[ii]. These trends indicate a growing interest among older people in downsizing and renting in retirement.

Moving to the coast offers many health benefits, including improved mental wellbeing[iii], increased physical activity, and a higher quality of life. According to data from the Centre for Ageing Better[iv], in some coastal local authority areas, one in three people are aged 65 and over, highlighting the popularity of living by the sea among retirees

My Future Living provides quality, affordable rental apartments in some of the UK’s most desirable coastal towns. Downsizing and renting can free up capital and mean people no longer need to worry about ongoing property maintenance. Renting also offers an affordable way to move to popular seaside resorts that may be expensive to buy in.

One retiree who relocated to the coast from London is Dutch-born retired stockbroker, Diederik (Rik) Schmull who is in his late seventies and rents a two-bedroom apartment at Homecove House, a retirement development in Westcliff-On-Sea in Essex.

Having previously owned a flat, Rik was attracted to renting in a retirement community because it’s flexible, so he could quickly move back to Amsterdam if he wanted. He also has an assured tenancy which means that as long as he sticks to the terms of his agreement he can live there for as long as he wishes.

He says, “Having rented a few places on shorthold tenancies before moving here, I ended up having to move twice at fairly short notice. I didn’t want that to happen again, especially as I’m getting older. Having the security of tenure that I can stay as long as I want is really reassuring.”

Rik enjoys being part of a community and has made friends with people in the development. He never feels isolated or alone, and highly recommends renting in a retirement community.

“For me it’s worked out really well and I’m very happy. It’s all about independent living but with the reassurance there is help available should you need it,” he adds.

My Future Living currently has several coastal rental apartments available in friendly retirement communities:

  • Chapel Court, Filey: A one-bedroom apartment for £725 per calendar month. Filey in North Yorkshire is a popular resort with bus and rail links, making York, Scarborough, Whitby, and Bridlington also easily accessible.
  • Homeprior House, Monkseaton: A one-bedroom apartment in Monkseaton, North Tyneside for £750 per calendar month. Monkseaton is a delightful coastal village with convenient access to Whitley Bay billed as the best beach to drive to in the UK[v].
  • Restharrow, Bournemouth: A one-bedroom apartment close to the train station for £900 per calendar month. Bournemouth boasts miles of sandy beaches, a large shopping centre, numerous entertainment facilities, and beautiful public gardens.

    Flat 16, Rose Court, Gloucester Road, Littlehampton, BN17 7EL

  • Rose Court, Littlehampton: A one-bedroom apartment for £975 per calendar month. Littlehampton offers access to unspoilt Sussex countryside and long expanses of beautiful coastline and sandy beaches.

These retirement developments offer communal lounges where residents can enjoy coffee mornings and other events, maintained communal gardens, a lift, guest suite and the security of the onsite manager, plus a 24-hour careline for out of hours emergencies. Most My Future Living properties are available on long term assured tenancies.

As property evictions soar, expert shares his advice for renters and landlords

NEW figures reveal bailiffs are evicting more renting households than at any time in the last six years. MoJ figures released earlier this month showed county court bailiffs evicted 2,682 households in England and Wales in the first three months of this year as a result of landlords issuing section 21 “no fault” eviction notices.
This was the highest level since the start of 2017 despite the government first promising to end the practice in April 2019.
Commenting on the figures, property expert Jonathan Rolande, founder of House Buy Fast, said: “The use of Section 21, so-called ‘no-fault eviction’ notices, was up 19% in the first quarter of 2024. The use of bailiffs is now at a six-year high.
“Many landlords and the court system are still catching up on the Covid backlog. Historic debts are now being addressed. Calling the ‘top of the market’, many landlords have issued 21’s to sell – it is now almost impossible to profit from a rental property if it has a high percentage mortgage.
Outlining the impact on landlords, Mr Rolande, a spokesman for the National Association of Property Buyers continued: “Landlords are opting to take the capital growth instead. Government dithering on the Section 21 ban has been the worst of all worlds – the ban has not materialised, but the threat is there, which has unnerved owners, many of whom have quit the sector. Now, unless it gets through by the end of May, it is likely to be off the table.”
“The cost of living crisis will have played its part too. Landlords are now forced to pay more to insure and maintain their properties. Tenants are more likely to default given that wages have not kept pace with inflation in the food and energy sectors.
“Interestingly, Section 21 is not usually used to evict a bad payer, that is the job of Section 8. 21’s are used to bring to an end a fixed term simply. The use of bailiffs in the case of a 21 indicates tenants have not vacated as arranged, many no doubt hanging on as long as possible when accommodation elsewhere is scarce or out of budget. Such difficult situations serve nobody and it is another sad aspect of the housing crisis afflicting so many.”
Outlining his advice to landlords and tenants who find themselves facing this problem, Jonathan says:
To tenants:
1.       Don’t bury your head in the sand. Speak to your landlord or agent and explain the issues you are experiencing. Pay what you can rather than nothing – a contribution towards outstanding rent is better than nothing.
2.       Check to see if you are entitled to benefits.
3.       If practical, ask for permission to rent a room or take in overseas students to boost your finances.
4.       Check your bills – could you save on council tax by applying for a discount or cut costs elsewhere?
5.       Get financial advice – Citizens Advice is a good place to start.
To landlords:
1.       Forbearance is always the right place to start, especially if the tenant has usually been reliable – anyone’s circumstances can change for the worse so be patient.
2.       Ask the tenant what they can afford to pay.
3.       Remember that it is often better to help an existing tenant rather than evicting them and starting again with somebody new.
4.       Consider if the tenant could be in a vulnerable state and make additional allowances if so.
5.       Give them assistance if they need to claim benefits.  It is often a blip, evicting a tenant from their home should be a last resort, when all other options have failed.

New research shows a rising demand for self storage among young UK consumers

Over half [54.4%] of young UK consumers rely on self storage due to lack of space, according to new research from leading self storage provider, Ready Steady Store.

The research, which surveyed 500 consumers on their current level of clutter within their homes, also revealed that 81% of Millennials and Gen Z respondents all required more space in their homes.

Of these, nearly 50% struggled with space in their properties due to storing sentimental or keepsake items, with 52% cluttered by seasonal items such as holiday decorations and winter and/or summer clothing.

However, due to rising mortgage rates impacting 28% of young consumers and the cost of living affecting 51%, growing numbers are turning to self storage instead of being able to move into a larger property. This is also affirmed by the fact 24% of respondents are opting to downsize and rely on self storage to safeguard excess items.

Other key take outs from the research include:

  • When investing in self storage, proximity to their home [68%], price [82.9%] and security [51.8%] are deemed as the most important factors.
  • Despite 56.6% of consumers requiring more space in their homes, only 16.9% of respondents live in a property with four people, whereas 41.9% live in a household with 2 people and 22% live in a household with 3 people.
  • 66% of consumers who live in London confirmed they require more space in their homes Vs 47% who live in Yorkshire.

 

This research comes as The Bank of England holds the base rate at 5.25% for the sixth time in a row, with the average mortgage rates still unaffordable for many at 5.41%, according to the latest stats from Rightmove.

 

Discussing this latest research, Mehran Charania, Director of Ready Steady Store, said: “This latest research is extremely interesting and highlights that although a massive 81% of young consumers believe they don’t have enough room, many are unable to move into a larger property due to high or uncertain mortgage rates.

As such, it is no surprise that the younger generation are having to increasingly rely on self storage to declutter and free up vital space. This is something that we have seen at Ready Steady Store sites across the country, and work hard to ensure we provide cost-effective, secure, and accessible units to all of our customers.”

 

Established in 2005, Ready Steady Store is a fast-growing self-storage provider with cost effective storage units located in the Midlands, and South, North and East of England.

Report shows surge in demand for age-appropriate housing and opportunity for developers says My Future Living

A new report highlights that demand for age-appropriate housing for older people is rising despite a slowdown in the housing market, and that affordability is a key driver, something that My Future Living, the UK’s leading retirement rentals brand says echoes their experience as retirees want to live somewhere that suits their needs in later life.

The ‘UK Real Estate Market Outlook Intelligent Investment 2024’ from CBRE[i] which has a chapter on Senior Living also found that the take up of rentals has grown substantially over the last five years, and that is the increasing number of over 75s is driving the demand for retirement housing.

 

Dominic Stead, Property Director at My Future Living said: “Where people live when they get older is high on the housing agenda as there isn’t currently enough supply. The report points to the opportunities for developers and investors to tap into this sector as the UK senior living market is still in its infancy and the penetration rate is a fraction of what is seen in other mature markets.

“We are seeing increasing demand for affordable, rental homes within retirement developments throughout the UK as people want to move somewhere that suits their lifestyle and changing needs in retirement. Renting is a good financial option for some as it can enable people to free up capital if they own a home, and to downsize.

“Moving to a one or two-bedroom apartment that is easier to manage and removes the headache of ongoing property maintenance and unexpected bills, frees people up to enjoy their retirement years as part of a sociable community. Developments tend to be close to local amenities and transport links which are important as people age and may not want to drive any longer.

“There are also the safety factors that are important, such as living in a gated community, having a house manager on site and an emergency cord in each apartment, as well as neighbours close by. These elements give extra reassurance that people can get assistance if needed, whilst benefiting from still living independently.

“We hope this report will encourage more developers and investors into the senior living sector as it’s something that is very much needed. Having more affordable, age-appropriate housing for our ageing population could encourage more to downsize, freeing up homes for younger families and giving older people a better retirement experience and lifestyle.”

Anwyl Submits Plans For New Homes in Carrington

ANWYL Homes has submitted detailed plans for 144 new homes on land known as The Meadow at Carrington Village.

The homebuilder consulted extensively with Trafford Council to incorporate the council’s new design code requirements, before making the reserved matters application (Ref: 113151/RES/24).

Anwyl plans to build 144 bespoke designed new homes, including a mix of houses and apartments, across the 15-acre site, one of the gateway sites to the new Carrington Village.

The 130 private sale homes planned include two, three and four-bedroom properties.  The remaining 14 homes will be a mix of two and three-bedroom affordable rent and shared ownership properties.

The Anwyl site, on Manchester Road, forms part of Carrington Village which is an exciting opportunity to create a new vibrant community in South Manchester. The Carrington Estate is one of the UK’s largest regeneration schemes. It comprises approximately 1,665 acres and will provide a mix of industrial, logistics, manufacturing, office and residential development, alongside new community facilities. The current masterplan proposes a total of 5 million sq.ft of commercial accommodation and 5,000 residential units.

John Grime, Managing Director for Anwyl Homes Lancashire, said: “Our site, The Meadow, enjoys a key position within the new Carrington Village and as a result of its location it will provide Anwyl with a prominent site in an area where there is a proven demand for housing alongside a short supply of new homes.

“Our project team, which includes Asteer Planning, Calderpeel Architects, Urban Green, GTD and Eddisons have been working hard with Anwyl and the Council to develop high quality proposals for The Meadow since we acquired the site from Wain Estates in September 2022. The scheme utilises a range of bespoke designed house types, set within existing mature trees along the site’s frontage. We also intend to carry out extensive new landscaping to create tree lined streets leading to two feature pocket parks and a central local equipped area of play.

“While we only recently submitted a reserved matters planning application, potential purchasers have been enquiring about the homes since the acquisition of the development and are keen to know when they will be on sale, such is the demand for new homes in the area. Subject to planning, work could start later this year, with the first homes expected to be released for sale in summer 2025.”

To help support the growth of the neighbourhood Anwyl will make S106 contributions towards primary education facilities totalling £236,890 (index linked), plus contributions towards a travel plan coordinator along with a community infrastructure levy payment.

The scheme’s sustainability credentials are also noteworthy.

“We’re committed to delivering energy efficient homes that help people live more sustainable lifestyles,” John added.

“The proposed homes at The Meadow will include renewable technology in the form of either photovoltaic panels or ground/air source heat pumps to provide heating and hot water. All homes will benefit from electric vehicle charging points too. The development will also look to provide a Biodiversity Net Gain of 5.26 area habitat units (40.4%) which is well above the national requirement for a minimum of 10%.”

Anwyl’s plans for new homes in Carrington are part of a targeted push to deliver more homes across Greater Manchester. The homebuilder is currently building and selling new homes at Whittle Brook Park in Heywood, as part of the wider new West Hopwood community. The company is keen to acquire further development land to assist with its growth aspirations.

Operating from Buckshaw Village, Anwyl Homes Lancashire also has live sites across Lancashire in Burscough, Catterall, Eccleston, Longridge and Warton, plus at Winnington, in Cheshire.

‘Debanking’ risk for real estate agents laid bare before Parliamentary committee

Thousands of small and medium-sized estate and letting agencies were debanked in 2023, with financial institutions forcibly closing accounts across the sector. Evidence provided to the House of Commons Treasury Committee revealed the scale of the problem for businesses across the UK.

 

Harriett Baldwin MP, Chair of the Treasury Committee, wrote to the UK CEOs of major banks, asking for:

  • The number of SME business accounts held by their organisations, and if possible, a break-down by business sector.
  • The number of accounts closed at the instigation of their organisation for the year to date, and the proportion of those that were SME business accounts.
  • If possible, a breakdown by business sector of the accounts closed.
  • The reasoning for the closure of the accounts.

 

Regulator and economic crime concerns behind closures

For the banks that provided a breakdown of the number of SME bank accounts closed, real estate businesses bore the brunt, with Lloyds closing 1,130 accounts, Santander closing 320, Metro Bank closing over 10%, and Handelsbanken closing 22%.

While closures varied across institutions and sectors, banks cited regulatory compliance, concerns over financial crime, and failure to furnish requested information as their primary reasons for closing accounts.

 

Real consequences for agents

In the UK, letting agencies are required to hold rent money in a client account, where the money is protected. Without a valid client account operated by an FCA-regulated bank or business society, a letting agency cannot legally operate or take out a client money protection policy, which is a legal requirement in England, Scotland and Wales.

 

Neil Cobbold, managing director of client accounting and automated rental payment specialists, PayProp UK, spoke out in support of the government’s investigation into large-scale account closures. “A stable banking relationship is fundamental for letting agencies and their tenants and landlords. The risk of not being able to receive or pay out rents due to account closures is a real worry for agents across the country, and one we are pleased to see the government investigating. It’s especially important to protect the SME business who are the ones most at risk of being debanked.

“Legitimate agents should not have to worry that their bank account will be closed. While some in the industry are calling for agents to be regulated (it may help prove to banks that they have effective financial controls and client money handling policies in place), putting a regulator in place will take time and will not solve the immediate problem some agencies are facing today.

“PayProp has been providing bank-integrated client money accounts for real estate agents around the world since 2004, and we have had the same banking partner in the UK since we started operating here in 2015. Over the years, PayProp has supported many letting agencies that have been debanked in securing compliant, reliable and efficient client accounting solutions through our platform.”

Households urged to act fast on mould to save thousands on repair

Act fast on mould to not get hit in the pocket

Staying on top of home maintenance can be an extra burden on everyday life. With children to look after, meals to make, clothes to wash, all this and much more takes up valuable time when you should be relaxing after a busy day. However your health and your finances can be hit hard if you overlook and neglect the early signs of mould, not to mention the significant health impact.

The UK is experiencing a year on year rise in homes requiring treatment for damp and mould with some areas seeing an unprecedented spike in residential properties experiencing this problem. Overall local authorities have seen a huge 66.67% rise in complaints during 2022/23 compared to the year before and housing associations saw a 70.23% increase during the same time period.(* USwitch Mouldy Nation Report.)

The causes vary from older housing stock and poorly ventilated homes to unresolved leaking plumbing.

The impact of mould on health has been widely reported with the NHS spending £1.4bn (**Building research body bre) a year treating illnesses associated with living in cold or damp conditions.

But if you find mould in your home, when and how should you act?

 

Mould can spread fast, causing expensive structural damage, so start to treat the problem straightaway.  A professional mould removal company will charge you from between  £300-£400 per day to solve the problem and a painter and decorator will cost you another £200-£300 per day to ensure your rooms are permanently mould free. Plumbers prices can vary widely depending on where in the UK you are anywhere up to £500.00 per day.

To effectively remove mould we recommend you use HG mould remover to deal with the issue head on. HG mould remover is affordable and available at many retailers from B&Q, Tesco’s and on Amazon selling from £5.25. HG mould remover eliminates all mould and is suitable for a  wide range of surfaces including plastered walls, tiles, bathroom seals and more. With a targeted spray action HG mould remover is easy to use directly onto mould or mildew in damp areas.

We do have other organic methods to remove mould, check them out here.  But we recommend that you resolve the issue first so as not to jeopardise your home and family. Homeowners are increasingly turning to HG to help them with their mould problems with a 232% increase in EPOS Sales Units 2023 vs 2021.

 

Prevention is always preferable and once you have solved your damp and mould problems here are some steps you can take to ensure your home is dry and mould free:

  1. open windows regularly
  2. cover pans when you cook
  3. dry clothes outdoors or in a dryer
  4. close internal doors when you cook or shower
  5. use extractor fans in the kitchen and bathroom
  6. leave a gap between furniture and external walls
  7. wipe condensation from window sills each morning

PyTerra has been awarded an Innovate UK R&D grant to develop an online solution which empowers tenants to initiate home energy improvement measures

 

PyTerra, the Bristol-based company, today announces it has been awarded a grant under Innovate UK’s ‘Net Zero Living: User Focused Design’ competition. This project will engage tenants across Bristol to understand how they can be incentivised to initiate energy efficiency measures in their rented homes.

Recognising that tenants are more likely to live in energy inefficient dwellings, and that the retrofit industry is failing to tap into the massive private rented sector, PyTerra is developing a solution called MyGreenDoor to bring these two markets together for mutual gain.

MyGreenDoor gives tenants more agency over their comfort and wellbeing, while at the same time opening up a significant market for the retrofit industry.

MyGreenDoor creates ‘smart’ landing pages on the websites of retrofit installers and suppliers, where tenants’ needs are assessed using customer intelligence tools, and where tenants are matched with solutions that suit both them and their landlords. Other products will be brought into the mix if needed, effectively creating multiple mini marketplaces across participating websites.

In effect, MyGreenDoor exchanges ‘hard sell’ for ‘soft sell’, brokering a space that emphasizes the building of trust-based relationships with potential customers – essential for the tenant market.

The impact will be to accelerate the delivery of more comfortable living environments and net zero targets. Tenants will receive information about solutions that are deliverable and affordable. Retrofit companies will open up the lucrative rental market and improve their customer conversion rates.

Tenants are being targeted because landlords currently have little incentive to invest in energy improvements. Last September, the Prime Minister scrapped new EPC targets which would have required landlords to improve the energy performance of their properties. Landlords still expect this legislation to be reintroduced in the future, but the timing is uncertain. However, the new Renters (Reform) Bill promises to help tenants become more secure to pursue energy improvements, building on rights they have had since 2015.

David Arscott

“Over the past two years we’ve focused on where MyGreenDoor can best bring consumers and suppliers together in the rapidly changing UK retrofit market. The product is being designed to improve tenants’ lives by giving them realistic choices as to how the comfort of their homes can be improved,” comments, David Arscott, founder and CEO at PyTerra. “This grant from Innovate UK validates our innovative thinking, allowing us to fully engage the tenant market in order to develop a successful product.”

During the project, PyTerra is working with expert market researchers Timmus Research. Advice is also being provided by Retrofit West CIC, whose MD Simon Andrews added, “ Innovation in this area, particularly where it drives data-driven insights into both buyer and seller markets, is wholly supported by Retrofit West.”

Retrofit installers and suppliers can sign up to hear more about MyGreenDoor via https://www.mygreendoor.io. Join the movement towards healthier homes for tenants through a thriving retrofit industry with MyGreenDoor.
