Nottingham rental prices increase
Rental prices have had their biggest increase in 28 months according to a new report through Landlord Today. This has been lead by growth within Nottingham and the East Midlands.
The average rental price increased by 0.13% in August which was the biggest month on month rise since April 2016. The East Midlands though has seen an average growth of 0.32%. This is the highest rise for an English region in over 40 months!
The average property rental price across the UK, excluding London, is now £767. If London is included, this jumps to an average of £1,209.
Large increases in rent across the East Midlands could be partly down to the new Selective Licensing scheme in Nottingham. Nottingham City Council were initially confident rental prices would not increase when the scheme began in August 2018.
