Brexit nerves increase rent demands

The nervous attitude towards construction post-Brexit has been labelled the main reason behind the expected rent rises in the UK.

Large property development firms hesitated to start new developments in the wake of the Brexit decision.

This decrease in new projects meant that the gap between supply and demand in the market increased dramatically.

With younger generations priced out of entering the property ladder, they are forced to turn towards renting for longer.

This has increased the demand for rental properties within the UK market.

Savills have forecasted that this new demand will push rental prices up by an average of 4% a year.
