Rental Market Update for November 2010

Skip to Headline Statistics or Useful Resources

Property rental income offered a mixed performance across the UK in November as tenants across the country tended to concentrate more about Xmas than finding somewhere new to live!  

Many areas are likely to have a relatively quiet month in December and rents tend to suffer a small seasonal downturn. However, rents will end up substantially higher at the end of 2010 than at the start and due to a stock shortage predicted in many areas, moving forward, we are likely to see a busy January 2011 and rises throughout the year.

From a landlord's perspective, the signs are that for 2011 there may be some easing of finance for Buy to Let investors who are cash rich and have a proven track record, which may help add much needed rental stock in some areas.

Should Tenants Buy to Let in Affordable Areas?
It may be for those tenants that rent in areas that they can't afford to buy in the long term, that looking at 'buying to let' in other nearby, affordable areas may be one of the few ways they can look to afford to purchase a home long term.  

If you are a tenant: rent something this side of Xmas if you can!
If you are a landlord: check out your portfolio, should you be buying, selling or holding?
