75 #Otley Households Occupied by OAP Renters

Recent statistics published by the Office of National Statistics show that there are 267,704 private rented households in the Country that are occupied by people aged 65 and older, meaning 4.39% of OAP’s are living in private rented property. It got me thinking two things. How many of these OAP’s have always rented and how many have sold up and become a tenant?

Private Renting set to grow by 400 Ilkley households by 2025 I was having a most interesting chat the other day with an Ilkley landlord when we were looking at a property.

£6,500 boost to #Ilkley First time buyers

There’s a whole legion of wannabe Ilkley first-time buyers keen to get on the property ladder and they now have a 3% price advantage over the previously quicker responding army of Ilkley landlords with cash at the ready. Since the start of April, buy to let landlords have had to pay an additional 3% stamp duty so whilst demand from some Ilkley buy to let landlords has dropped away, in the interim, it offers Ilkley first time buyers (FTB’s) a...
