1 in 5 Landlords will be Increasing Rent in 2021 with London being Most Likely Region for Rental Increase
The National Landlord Index published by Accommodation.co.uk, has uncovered that the vast majority (90.2%) of landlords have a good relationship with tenants and 82% have also committed to not increasing rent in 2021. This new report highlights that many landlords are conscious of the financial difficulties the pandemic has caused their tenants and are aiming to keep rent as affordable as possible in 2021.
Nearly a fifth (18%) of landlords, however, stated they would be increasing rent in 2021 and out of these properties the most likely region to see a rental rise was London with 35% of the total, followed by the North West and West Midlands both with 21%. Many regions had no landlords stating they would increase rent including Scotland, North East, East and Northern Ireland.
