Let’s Rent Featured on Sky News

Sep 25th 2023

Last week, we were featured on a sky news report.

As seen on TV! Following our recent article on The Renter’s Reform Bill, we were excited to be invited to speak with Sky News about recent changes to the rental market in Bristol.

Reporters followed one of our agents to a house viewing and spoke to our founder, Adil, about why many landlords have been selling up.

Adil discussed how waiting lists for properties are increasing, with a queue of phone enquiries for rentals waiting each morning. Many property lets never even make it to the advertising phase, with viewings and offers being snapped up in the first few hours. He also discussed the impact this has on those who have been born and bred in Bristol, relative to those attracted to the city from the outside.

Film crews additionally followed Senior Property Manager Usman Ayub as he led a property viewing with a family of prospective tenants.

At Let’s Rent, we’re proud to use our expertise of the rental market to help inform the public and key decision makers for Bristol.

Watch the report below or here on Youtube. You can also read the text version on the Sky website.

If you’re considering letting a property or passing on the management of an existing rental, get in contact with our experienced team of agents, providing a range of services for landlords in the Bristol Area.

Re: Usman Ayub – Lets Rent Letting & Management Prior to meeting Usman, the experience in trying to rent property in Bristol for over 6 months was demoralising. A Let's Rent representative (Seb) contacted me by phone to say they'd managed to alter a few appointments for the viewing & I would be me by Usman. He was punctual & informative throughout prior to our entrance to the building. He informed me of the layout, security & access which therefore covered all the H&S criteria in case there was an issue. Once the viewing was over, Usman assured me that he will send over the documents via email for me to complete, which was actioned without delay. Throughout the legal itinerary & required information, he kept me informed which enabled me to clear up some issues the automated system rejected unbeknownst to me. Usman is a valid member of the team and the functionality of this business benefits with him as a valid member.
