London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2015 -- Properties are now being rented out to new tenants before existing occupants have even moved out according to new figures released by a prominent property news service. So far in 2015, 33% of new lets were agreed while occupants were still in the property – a figure which is already up from 27% last year. With the property market booming and places to stay becoming increasingly scarce and competitive amongst prospective tenants, the average period it takes for a landlord to let a property is 32 days, which is the shortest period on record. These statistics are even higher in London where 51% of new lets are agreed whilst there is a sitting tenant in the property.
This has implications on current tenants as it means that they won't have the leeway which was traditionally assured when they moved out of a property. This makes organisation when it comes to removals, packaging and storage even more crucial. The traditional laissez-faire and informal approach to moving house can no longer be depended upon. This means that both new and old tenants alike will have to invest in a reliable service which can assure them of a smooth transition.
