East and South East rents rise as demand outside London rockets

Our friends at LSL Property Services produce a series of monthly reports on the latest Buy To Let Index Report for England and Wales. The following is a brief summary of the report together with a link to a fuller version which includes a more detailed analysis.
  • London and the South West only two regions to see rents fall year-on-year
  • Average rent in England and Wales was £798 in February
  • Wales sees rents rise faster than anywhere else in UK
  • Strong rent growth outside of London

The South East and the East of England regions were among the fastest growing areas in the last 12 months. While London is still home to the highest rents, it was one of only two areas to see prices fall in the year to February 2017.

While most areas of England and Wales saw rents increase, yield levels have continued to trend downwards over the last year.
