RENT TO RISE AGAIN BY CHRISTMAS
Average rents in central London will reach £1,052 per week by December. Cluttons predicts this will mean a £15 rise on weekly rents, an extra £780 a year in rent for tenants. Lynn Hilton, partner for residential lettings at Cluttons, says: "With rents expected to rise, tenants are having to be flexible on the location, standard of property and sharing arrangements.”
