Over the past few years, there has been a surge in retired renters but the number of landlords letting to retirees has been decreasing. According to research, a quarter of retirees live in rented accommodation, with over 40% of renting retirees having previously owned their own home. By selling up and choosing to rent, they are able to supplement their retirement income and pay off any existing debts.
By targeting the retired demographic, you may be able to reduce your void periods as well as enjoy long-term tenancies. Where some young people are more inclined to move more frequently for career or lifestyle changes, the retired community tends to be a stable and reliable choice for many landlords.
Elderly households can make ideal tenants to let to, as they tend to live quiet lives and have a reliable, static stream of retirement income to pay their rent. This static income, however, can be a disadvantage should you ever find yourself needing to raise the rent to cover the mortgage payment.
Generally, landlord insurance for retired tenants is comparable to standard professional lets in terms of premiums, but rates may differ slightly between companies and your particular situation.
