UK Rental Squeeze Continues

02-11-2011 09:10 AM CET | Business, Economy, Finances, Banking & Insurance

Press release from: Propacea Limited

The imbalance between high demand for private rented accommodation and the limited supply will continue to distort the market and produce unforseen quirks.
According to the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), there will be various new factors emerging: home owners who cannot sell will turn to renting their properties, knowing that rates are currently high. But this will go nowhere near saoking up the rising demand and will not cause prices to stabilise in 2011.
Meanwhile, renters will be forced to make do with less suitable property, depending on the area of the country they live in. Family homes are coming onto the rental market in many parts of England, because they cannot be sold, whereas in London, large family homes are at a premium and the supply is limited.
Central London residential rents have gone up by 19 per cent since mid-2009, with Knightsbridge and Mayfair seeing 20 per cent-plus rises. Overall London rents are now almost up to their pre-2008 level, as the effects of the credit crunch are gradually receding.

Why House Price Stagnation Is A Good Thing
News from the Land Registry that average property prices fell by 1.1 per cent in March to £160,996, with other surveys painting a similar picture of tiny falls, or tiny rises, has caused commentators and property experts to bemoan the ‘stagnation’ of the market. Certainly from one point of view, stagnation is a bad sign, since the livelihoods of estate agents, surveyors, mortgage advisors and many others depends on a

As winter turns to spring and people’s minds turn to the likely upshot of the economic turmoil in Britain and its impact on the property market (at least mine does), we present a snapshot of the sentiment among property experts and commentators: Simon Rubinsohn, chief economist at Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS): “I think that confidence has improved since the end of the year but it remains fragile
Mortgage Demand Falls Off A Cliff
The government’s spending review, along with sliding house prices, has dampened demand for mortgages to its lowest level since the third quarter of 2008 – which was the lowest rating on record. The Bank of England’s analysis of credit conditions for households and businesses placed demand for home loans at -41.5 on a scale of -100 to +100. But while demand is down, the banks insist that they
