The big property sites (you know the ones we're taking about) don't allow private landlords to advertise - they only accept listings from agents. This leaves private landlords with fewer options when it comes to advertising. Around a third of UK landlords don't use an agent to manage their properties or find tenants so there are a high number of great properties out there that are hard to find.
Why private rentals?
Lots of landlords use an agent but not everyone wants to pay commission. For many landlords renting out properties is their job, so they'd rather put the work in and reap the rewards themselves. Similarly, not all tenants want to rent through an agent and pay the admin fees charged by most - they're happier to rent direct from the landlord.
At FindaFlat we're not anti-agent, we just think private landlords should have the same opportunities to advertise as agents.
