Landlords should adopt a unique approach to letting out their property if they are to succeed in the rented market, an expert has claimed.

Chris Jenkins, manager of Clarity Commercial, insisted that demand for rental accommodation remains "reasonably high"at this moment in time.

This could be attributed to the uncertainty in the UK property market and lack of mortgage lending from banks.

As a result, landlords should be able to find interested tenants for their properties without too much difficulty, he suggested.

Those who had been unable to do so were more than likely overpricing their rents or failing to meet the needs of tenants in the area.

"It is important to adopt an individual and bespoke approach to letting your property rather than adopting a 'one method fits all',"Mr Jenkins advised.

Landlords have seen an increase in the number of properties available for rent recently as sellers struggle to offload their homes in the depressed market.

This has led many to rent out their properties until activity increases, meaning some landlords have had to improve their standards to remain competitive.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18971473-ADNFCR
