Rental on the rise


Property insights: Rents continue to rise nationwide

House price growth may be slowing, but rents look set to continue to increase. Property experts generally agree on growth estimates of around 4–5% annually.

Property website, Zoopla, reports that the average rents for new-lets have risen the most, by 11.1% in the last 12 months. Earnings have increased by 6.7%.

Demand for rental homes remains 10% higher than last year, driven by four key factors:

  • the strength in the job market
  • resulting high economic immigration
  • a rapid increase in oversees university students
  • a static supply of rental homes.

The other property website, Rightmove, points out that the first quarter of 2023 marked the 13th consecutive three-month period where asking rents on new properties to let had risen. This run stretches back to the end of 2019.
