ARLA Propertymark has issued its June Private Rented Sector (PRS) Report and David Cox, Chief Executive, said:
“It’s positive to see the number of properties available to rent slowly rising but it still isn’t anywhere near enough to slow down the pace of rent rises, which are continuing to climb.
“Over the last few years, we’ve seen taxes to both purchase and let a rental property increase. This combination – coupled with continued regulatory change – has unsurprisingly started pushing landlords out of the market. We predicted back at the end of last year that renters would be in for a rough ride in 2018, and we warned Government about the impact on the market. Our fears are now being realised and renters are suffering as a result.”
