Published on 16/11/2021

Rents are rising at the fastest pace since 2008 with people rushing back to city centres. 

Renting in the private sector has risen by 4.6% in comparison to September last year.  The average price of renting is now £968 per month making this the strongest growth seen in the last 13 years.

Outside London rent is up by 6% which is a 14 year high.  This lack of increase is owing to a higher demand for city living with a limited supply of properties. Rent has also increaded the most in the South West (9%), followed by Wales (7.7%) and the East Midlands (6.9%).
