UK rental price statistics and tenants budgets 2012-2013-2014
Every day we publish our average rent prices across all UK regions. The table compares this and previous year (numbers in smaller font size) including tenant rental budgets and rent prices of whole properties. This data is freshly squeezed every morning from our database server.
Here are average rental prices and tenant budgets in different UK regions for the past 12 months compared to the 12 months before.
UK rent prices situation mid May 2014:
- For the first time in a long time the mad growth of London Rent prices stopped increasing and even dipped down.
- West counties of England and Northern Ireland have steadily growing rent prices, but unlike the last year the situation in NI is a bit alarming.
- Budgets of roomies went up throughout the country.
Rent prices Feb 2013:
- In London monthly room rental prices rose by £46 in one year, flats etc went up by the whole £93. Tenants can’t afford to top their budgets at the same rate. Budgets to pay for a room rental are even less than the year before. Not good.
- In the north of England, tenant budgets are tighter than the year before. On the other hand tenants in the south seem to be dealing with the price increase in the region quite well.
- In Wales and East Anglia rent prices have increased almost at the same rate as in London, ouch.
- In Scotland rent prices for whole properties actually went down.
- In Northern Ireland St Patrick’s Day is coming. Black beer! Yeah!
Rent prices Feb 2012:
- In London average room rental prices fell by £45pcm in the past 12 months getting closer to what tenants are looking to pay. However London’s whole property rents on our website went up a massive £182 with tenants not being ready to offer that much.
- Landlords in Wales figured what to charge for their properties and aligned prices with expectations of tenants and lodgers.
- Scottish landlords know their price bang on. Extraordinary and a good sign of stability.
- In Northern Ireland the situation is the other way round - higher prices, less demand compared to a more stable market the previous year.
Our UK rental price statistics are now available and freshly pulled daily.
