The annual ‘Under one Roof’ property event was held in October at The King’s Centre in Halifax. The event is aimed at helping the owners of empty properties to understand some of the options available to them to bring empty properties back into use.
The event was run by Calderdale Council and Ryder & Dutton were on hand to offer advice to visitors about marketing properties for sale, rent and even Auction, to help home owners understand the routes to getting an income from an empty property.
It is understood that there are more than 1,500 empty properties in and around Calderdale and Stuart North and Michaela Barton met with some of the owners of these properties, who are interested in bringing them back into use.
Stuart North of Ryder & Dutton comments, ‘This is the fourth consecutive year that Ryder & Dutton have attended the ‘Under one Roof’ event and it is a great way of providing clients with the advice they need. The event attracts a lot of visitors and many of the home owners we speak to simply do not know the options they have open to them, and so we can offer them some advice. In many instances people had simply held onto empty properties far longer than they had intended doing, and were keen to explore both the sales and lettings potential that was available to them. To release a capital lump sum from the sale of a property or achieve a steady rental income were potential options for many of the visitors.’
In addition to talking to visitors on the day, Ryder & Dutton also participated in a Question and Answer session, allowing visitors to pose questions in an open forum.
If anyone would like any information regarding an empty property that you currently own, or in fact any property that you require advice about, don’t just wait for such an event to be held. We are always happy to offer guidance on any such matter and can be contacted on 01422 433 849.
