We note that one major UK city is now considering banning Agents from putting up boards , on the grounds that they may attract unwanted attention from opportunist thieves and that the proliferation of them in certain areas is becoming an eyesore. Boards are an excellent way of identifying where the property is located and provide contact information for tenants but with new technology and more especially mobile applications linked to property sites perhaps they will become less prevalent. The real issue is perhaps that boards often are not removed when a property is let and although they do provide some measure of advertising this is misleading and leads to some wasted calls about property that is in fact no longer available. Rentlocally offer our landlords the choice to have a board or not and we will continue to do so for the forseeable future.
