      Although rents are falling landlords should be more focused on avoiding long void periods.

            Sadly this is not true, certainly in central london. What's ended up happening is that those who can't buy property because of the poor economic situation end up renting, rather than buying, pushing up rental yields while property prices continue to stagnate. The problem is that the economy is so bad that it doesnt matter if housing prices fall slightly- people still cant afford homes.
