ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT RISING RENTS?

TOM SCARLETT | GFT
“I am willing to pay more rent, because whilst it is expensive, it does allow me to live reasonably well within the city. If I was to get on the property ladder, my wife and I wouldn’t be able to afford anything central, and I am not ready for the commute from suburbia.”

JAMES SOULSBY | NIIT INSURANCE TECHNOLOGIES
“It hasn’t really affected me. I have a good relationship with my landlord and he hasn’t increased the rent since I have lived there. If he were to up the rent, I would still pay it, as I just don’t have the money to pay for the deposit needed to buy a property.”

STUART FORBES | LLOYDS BANKING GROUP
“As someone who rents, I’m not over the moon about the rise in costs. However, I can’t really afford the ludicrously expensive down payment for a mortgage. So, without a huge amount of options, I just have to deal with the expense of renting.”
