Matt Trevett

“Every region across the UK has witnessed inflation-beating rent increases during the past 12 months.

“The combination of increasing demand for rental property and cost-of-living pressures seems to be fuelling sustained rent rises.

“Rent increases are also affecting every type of property, whether flats, terraced, semi-detached or detached, which may also reflect demand for rental property outstripping supply in many parts of the UK.”
