The latest official rental price indices continue upwards

01 Jun 2016

Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures just released show that rents in England rose by 2.8% in the year to April. The index covers all existing private rental stock - old, new, well-maintained and badly maintained.

With the government already behind with the number of houses built needed to satisfy the number required by new households (target of 250,000 per year as per the recent Barker Review, last year about 140,000 were completed), it's clearly likely that rents will continue to rise, and that buy-to-let investing will retain its attractiveness.
