Rents to rise as ownership falls

Latest reports from the BBC indicate that the level of home ownership will fall to the lowest since the 1980's as higher deposit requirements and continued high prices force potential first time buyers to rent.

The result is that rents are expected to rise.

Oxford Economics predicts that rents will rise by 20% over the next 5 years. This is on top of strong rental gains made over the last year. The Rent Index shows that rents have risen by over 5% in the last 6 months to over £608 a record since the index was established in 2008.
