Average asking rents for new tenancies outside London jumped to another record high of £1,172 a month in December – although there are now signs that the pace of growth is starting to ease.

Rightmove reports that average rents for newly listed properties rose by 9.7% in 2022 compared with the previous year, although the last quarter’s 0.9% rise compared with the previous three months was the smallest quarterly increase for two years. In contrast, average asking rents in London accelerated, rising by 5.8% and setting a new monthly high of £2,480.

The lack of available properties is also showing signs of easing, as the number available to rent in December was 13% higher than the same period in 2021. New properties coming up for rent were also up 5%.

Renters rise

The number of tenants looking for a property was up by 7% last month compared with the previous year, however, competition between tenants dropped by 6% and by a third (33%) compared with the peak in September. Wales (+15%) and the South West (+13%) have seen the biggest jumps in new properties to rent regionally, which led to a slight drop in respective average asking rents of 1%. It’s the first quarterly drop for any region since the start of 2021.Rightmove’s director of property science, Tim Bannister (pictured) says: “There appears to be some more property choice for renters compared to the record low levels of last year which would slightly ease the fierce competition to secure a home.“This is why we’re forecasting that the pace of annual growth will ease to around 5% by the end of the year nationally, although this would still significantly exceed the average of 2% that we saw during the five years before the pandemic.”


Another bit of good news for Exeter and its education provision 🎓
Exeter College has been praised by city leaders after being judged Outstanding by Ofsted inspectors.
Eight years since its last inspection, Ofsted has again confirmed Exeter is an Outstanding College. It also scored the top assessment of ‘strong’ for its approach to meeting the skills needs of the area.
This makes Exeter College the first in the country to achieve the highest judgement in both elements of Ofsted’s new enhanced inspections.
Exeter City Council Leader Cllr Bialyk said: “It is fantastic news that the College has once again been recognised as Outstanding."
