Hi guys,

I'm looking to raise the rent on my property. Its outside of a rent pressure zone so its need to what the going market rent of properties in the area are, just one thing, how do I find this out? Is comparables off daft enough but that doesn't really show what a property has been rented for? Thanks

Why doesn’t it. It shows the asking which all that’s required. Or you can select to show let agreed. As long as they are comparable in size type location it will be fine.

Oust side of RPZ s it is hard to find comparators. Make sure to download the property details and not the variations between your property and the comparators. If the tenant challenges you at the RTB, you will have to explain your valuation as in better than x, not as good as Y hence the price.

Do your research of comparables on daft or other websites and take screenshots or print off the adds so you have hard evidence

Make sure you used the template for notification of rent increase on rtb website. You have to state 3comparable properties on your letter.
