Statistics outlined this week suggest worrying times ahead if you have made a property investment and become a private landlord. It has been reported that the number of tenants in severe financial difficulty climbed by over 10% in the first quarter of 2012, with almost 9,000 more tenants 2 months in arrears than in the last quarter of 2011.


However, it is not all doom and gloom, as despite these increases, tenancies in severe arrears represented less than 3% of all properties in the private rental sector in England and Wales in the first quarter of 2012.


Still, as we all continue to tackle the ever-tightening purse strings, we property investment entrepreneurs at www. are confident that not only can we weather this storm, knowing that our investment is safe from tenancy issues such as these, as we can adapt and actually turn a profit whatever the property market conditions!
