ByeMould.com has recently been doing some work with Tom Morgan from Somerset based Jungle Property so we asked Tom if we could ask him a few questions for ByeMould blog readers. Thankfully Tom was agreeable to an interview and his answers are as follows:
1) Could you tell us about Jungle Property?
Jungle Property is a multi award-winning customer service business that lets and manages residential property across Somerset.
Our service vision is simple – to delight all those who come in contact with Jungle Property.
2) Do you think that this a good time to buy an investment property?
Yes – a shortage of housing in the UK (we simply have not been building enough!) together with a rise in the popularity of renting makes buy-to-let an attractive proposition. However investors need to choose property carefully if they are to maximise the return on their investment.
3) Is mould a problem for tenants ?
Mould is a huge problem and raises concerns about the effects on their health if the problem is not addressed.
4) Would you recommend that landlords/tenants buy a dehumidifier?
Definitely – mould and mildew aside the health benefits of using a dehumidifier are well documented. As more and more people now suffer from allergies and asthma the use of a dehumidifier should be considered as an option to condition the air you breath.
5) Do you have any genral words of advice for tenants and landlords?
Get yourself a good agent!
ByeMould would like to thank Tom for his time in answering these questions. If you are a tenant or landlord in the Somerset area give Tom a call to get advice and up to date information.
