60% of properties are overdue a rent review

News at Waterfords | 10/05/2022

With average tenancy lengths increasing throughout the pandemic, many properties in the Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley areas are being rented at below market value. The recent report by Rightmove shows that the amount of rent charged by landlords stayed the same over the last 12 months, despite rents reaching record highs.

Average rents are now 15% higher than the same period two years ago, when the pandemic was in the beginning stages.


Rents reach record highs

Data revealed by Rightmove has revealed record high rental costs for tenants outside London.

National rents outside the capital have reached an eye-watering £1,088 per month on average as demand has continued to far outweigh supply.

Annual rental growth reached 11% over the past year – the first time on record that rents outside London have exceeded 10%.

With rental demand up by 6% and the number of rental properties available being 50% lower than at the same point 12 months ago, the rental market is the most competitive it’s ever been.
