CITY VIEWS: HAVE YOU NOTICED RENT PRICES RISING?

DANIEL BERRY | ATARAXIA GROUP

“I’ve bought a property but I'm still aware that rent has risen across the capital. It’s increasingly difficult to get a mortgage these days with banks less likely to lend money.”

RICHARD BAXTER | HISCOX SYNDICATES

“Yes, I think rent prices are increasing, but despite rising prices for property in London, it is still a better option than buying as tenants don’t suffer volatile house prices.”

STEPHEN GIRDLER | ACCENTURE

“Definitely, a lot of people are complaining about the rising costs. Banks aren’t willing to loan money for mortgages so people can’t afford to buy; there’s too much flux at the moment.”
