Landlord’s Guide to Letting Property in Teesside & Middlesbrough

Whether it’s shopping, history, or just beautiful landmarks you’re after, Teesside has something for everyone; making it the ideal location to invest and develop in. With an estimated population of just under 400,000 people, 30,000 of those being students, it’s easy to see how Teesside is growing and will continue to flourish as time goes by.

Deeply involved in the steel and chemical production industries in the UK, Teesside was an important part of the development of countries across the world. Notably, the Sydney Harbour bridge was produced by the Teesside company Dorman Lang, and Teesside made steel can still be found across the world. Since the steel industry’s decline, the area has recovered by still having a strong footing in the chemical production industry, and a growing academic reputation thanks to Teesside University.

If you’re looking to take your first steps as a landlord in Teesside, there are plenty of options available to you; both in terms of student and professional properties. In central Middlesbrough there is the opportunity to invest in properties of all sizes, with a plethora of terraced properties available which are perfectly suited to fixing up. Or, these properties can even be left with their classic fittings without causing structural issues.

For those looking for quieter residential properties to let, there are an abundance of beautiful homes perfect for families in the quieter suburbs of the Teesside. For £75,000 or more, you are able to access two or three bedroomed properties with either front or rear gardens which are certain to attract families. As the house prices increase, the numbers of bedrooms and proximity to fantastic schools and other amenities also grows. Between the £100,000 and £200,000 mark, investors start to have access to some of the most beautiful and highly sought after areas in Teesside. These properties can have anywhere between two and four bedrooms, depending on locations and room size. The more characterful and historic properties will attract the eyes of those looking to rent long term and are most likely to only increase in value over time.

Should you choose to invest more than £250,000 in a property, you move into the range of properties which typically have off street parking spaces for at least two vehicles. They usually also have additional feature rooms, such as conservatories, or a dedicated utility room. In this price bracket there is an ever increasing number of newly built homes which would require little to no work to make ready to let -- you would simply need to furnish and style to your own requirements. Above this price range investors have access to the highest quality and often largest family homes, with unique features, and even some individually designed houses which cater to the architect’s every need.

In the highest echelons of letting opportunities in Teesside, investors have the choice between investing in larger single properties, or even getting involved with multiple smaller developments. If you’re looking to manage multiple properties, you still have the choice of whether you want to let to professionals or students dependent upon location. With Teesside’s ever growing population, the number of opportunities in the area is only set to grow; but whilst prices are still comparatively low, now is the perfect time to get involved.
