Wanted: More Landlords!

Wanted: More Landlords!

There are five regular monthly rental sector reports. Some cover the UK and some cover just England and Wales. This is a summary of the report headlines and latest data together with Kate Faulkner’s commentary on the implications for landlords and tenants:-

Report Headlines:-
Move with Us  “July has seen a significant stabilising of advertised rents when viewed against previous months in 2013. (July 13)”
Acadametrics/LSL “Rents rise more slowly than inflation. (July 13)”
Belvoir Lettings  – “Average rents across the UK for July 2013 were £687, £7 more per month than 2012. However this was £8 less per month than in July 2008, over five years ago, for offices which have traded consistently over the last five years. (July 13)”
Homelet  “A record month for the UK’s rental market. (July 13)”
CML – “Buy-to-let lending tops £5 billion in second quarter. (Q2 13)”

Kate Faulkner comments on Rental Report Headlines:
“Most rental reports are showing a slowdown in rents – mainly due to very little movement in disposable income. The only report which is showing a hike is Homelet, but over the last few years, we’ve seen their data tends to overestimate average rental trends.”
