Property accountants work hard to make sure you get the best return on any investment you make into real estate; but this can be challenging when buy-to-let landlords attempt ill-advised DIY on their rental homes.
Unless you are a capable tradesman, it might be wise to think of DIY as standing for “Don’t Involve Yourself”, as botched jobs can significantly affect the value of a property when it comes time to sell it on.
One reason why north-west property accountants might be able to breathe a sigh of relief, however, is the region’s commitment to only carrying out household tasks while sober.
Astonishing figures from Direct Line show that over 6% of Britons have turned their hand to DIY while drunk, rising to an incredible 14% in London.
Travel north, however, and sobriety sets in, with only 5% of north-west residents admitting to having drunk a beer while carrying out a DIY task.
Many of these are likely to be landlords – demonstrating that the region’s residents are as committed to maintaining the value of their real estate as their property accountants are.
