Renting endorsement from property star

Renting has recently had a massive endorsement from an unlikely source, comment south east London letting agents. The presenter of Channel 4's hugely-popular property show Grand Designs and owner of architectural construction practice Happiness Architecture Beauty, Kevin McCloud has spoken up in favour of renting as a credible alternative to owning your own home. Referring to properties to rent in south east London and across the country, McCloud said: "renting is a perfectly good idea" and says his time as a tenant "left me free to actually enjoy my life." McCloud's declaration came at the same time as the Office for National Statistics released its latest house price index. Its latest findings revealed house prices in July 2014 where 11.7% higher than during the same month in 2013. In London, the appreciation value was even more dramatic, with an up lift of 19.1% over the last 12 months alone. Renting offers a relatively inexpensive way of moving out of a family home or student accommodation. When compared to the mortgage arrangement fees, stamp duty, deposit, legal fees and associated moving costs, paying a tenancy deposit is less draining on the finances at a time when wage rises are not matching house price inflation. At Winkworth letting agents in south east London, we know choosing to rent is spurred on by a variety of reasons. Of course, current house prices in the capital mean some would-be buyers are now searching properties to rent in south east London but as McCloud alludes to, renting grants a sense of freedom at a time when professionals need to be increasingly mobile for work. In addition and especially among younger renters, there's often a desire to move about within the city, trying out new up-and-coming areas before deciding on where to settle. Properties to rent in south east London offer the chance to live in some of the capital's most exciting emerging neighbourhoods, with Herne Hill, New Cross and West Norwood joining more established areas such as Greenwich, Dulwich and Blackheath. As a London-wide letting agent Winkworth has a comprehensive range of houses and flats to rent in south east London, from small studios to large family homes. If you are interested in properties to rent in south east London or have a house or flat that you are considering renting out, please contact Winkworth letting agents today.
