A survey by referencing company HomeLet has revealed that the average rent on tenancies across the UK has increased nearly 5% since February 2015, and 7.7% in London!
The results show that on average, tenants in the UK can expect to pay £744 a month, whereas London tenants are looking at a cost of around £1,520.
The HomeLet research also revealed that the number of new tenancies signed by a single tenant has dropped – which may be down to the rise in rental rates.
Tenancies that were taken on by just a single tenant accounted for just 33% of new tenancies, whereas tenancies signed by two tenants rose from 28% to 52%. Agreements signed by three or more tenants have risen by 10%, to own 15% of the market.
