The cost of privately renting a home in Greater London is now 75% more expensive than in the rest of the UK.
It now stands at £1,158 a month, more than 6% higher than a year ago. HomeLet also says that London tenants’ incomes are now 3.5% lower than a year ago.
Over the UK as a whole, average rents are £764 a month – 5% higher than a year ago.
Taking Greater London out of the equation, average rents across the UK are £661.
The HomeLet Rental Index shows agreed rental prices from over 3,000 letting agents each month, rather than prices that are advertised on property portals. The latest figures cover March.
