Rising rents as demand outstrips supply

In our first story we follow the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors report on rents being on the rise for 10 months in a row and the Institution go on to predict average rents will continue to rise by around 3.0 per cent next year as there remains no likelihood of supply meeting demand.

More in our second story on the supply issue where the British Property Federation warns this needs greater focus by the Government, only whilst Prime Minister David Cameron’s recent announcement to change the national planning policy creates more homes for sale – a welcome initiative stoking demand for home ownership - it doesn’t address the supply issue for high quality rented accommodation for generation rent.
And that brings us onto renters. Landlords please note the Right to Rent start date has now been announced – see more in our final news article. Under new rules landlords who fail to check a potential tenant’s ‘Right to Rent’ in the country will face penalties of up to £3,000 per tenant.
Kind regards
