Private rents hit record highs

Recommended Posts

The housing market is heating up – and not just in terms of house prices. 

It was announced yesterday that private rents have risen to record highs, escalating more than 20% in some areas like Manchester. 

The research (from Rightmove) lays part of the blame on the divide between supply and demand for rental properties in the UK. 

Another interesting note is that rents fell in some city centres (when a small number of tenants wanted to go further out of the city), and those who secured lower rental prices are naturally unwilling to risk losing those by moving. 

Looks like the impact of the last two years is still being felt. 

Have you increased your rents in the last year? https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/jul/14/private-rents-in-uk-reach-record-highs-with-20-rises-in-manchester

Yes. All my rents have gone up.

However, not as much as the market rate as it has shot up way faster than I am comfortable passing onto the tenants in one go. I know some Landlords are evicting their tenants and then jumping to market rent, but I don't feel that is ethical. I prefer to keep my tenants long term and gradually increase the rent over the years.
