Double digit annual rent rises in many parts of Britain

Rents across Britain continue to bounce back according to the Hamptons agency. 

The average rent of a new let rose 7.4 per cent or £75 in August compared to the same month in 2020 to stand at £1,085 pcm.

Southern regions outside of London enjoyed the strongest growth: rents in the South West rose 13.9 per cent followed by the South East (12.8 per cent) and the East of England (10.9 per cent).


London saw the weakest growth - yet again - with rents up just 1.4 per cent annually.

    I hope it stays fine for you. I have had no increase in years good luck to you and double digits. I have some very good Tenants but not high earners so how do you suppose I pass on the extra costs being imposed on us virtually every other week.
