What priorities have changed for tenants following the pandemic?

  • Priorities have changed for over a quarter of tenants following the pandemic, according to The Property Academy Tenant Survey 2020.
 
  • The Survey, based on 5,000 tenants, found that over a third of tenants said affordability (68%) and a garden (67%) had become more important than they were pre-lockdown.
 
  • With the government encouraging working from home, it is no surprise that 63% of tenants said broadband speed was more important and 61% said space to work from home was more important.
 
  • Landlords should consider renters priorities, for example; assisting access to fast broadband, providing office furniture, and assessing rental values could help keep tenants happy. Source: Dataloft, Property Academy
