The unusual surge in demand, couple with ongoing problems with stock availability as more landlords quit the market, is already pushing up rents significantly.Average asking rents outside London hit an all-time high of £817 a month in the second quarter of the year, while nationally rent rises have been accelerating and are increasing by 2.7%.“The rise in rental prices may also mean some agents or landlords have attempted to raise rents to help compensate for a loss of tenant fees,” says Rightmove’s housing spokesperson Miles Shipside (left).“More build to rent developments with more premium offerings and rents could also be adding to the average increase.”Rightmove Miles Shipside Chestertons tenant fees ban July 19, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
