The appeal of Harrogate – the current title holder of Britain’s happiest place to live – continues to grow.

Latest figures from the thriving spa town’s residential sales and letting specialists, Linley & Simpson, reveal that properties are being rented at a record rate.

With over 170 homes let through its Princes Square office in the first five months of this year, there is a growing need for more rental properties to match this record-breaking demand.

Recent changes to the UK pension rules, which allow people to cash in their savings and invest in property for the first time, has made it easier for those wanting to invest in bricks and mortar and reap the benefits of a return which outperforms banks and building societies.

Coupled with a greater choice of buy-to-let mortgages, there has never been a better time to invest in property in the Harrogate area.

Linley & Simpson’s Harrogate branch has a growing database of 750 potential tenants actively looking for a property to rent – giving it unrivalled ability to find a great candidate quickly.

For those landlords wanting a rental valuation from one of its team of letting experts, there is now another good reason to choose Linley & Simpson – it is offering a £25 voucher from another of Harrogate’s best-known names, Betty’s, once the property appraisal has taken place.
