The lettings market experienced a hugely busy July with the majority of rental values returning to pre-COVID levels. Tenants are increasingly open to paying a premium for properties with plenty of outside space or an area inside that is suitable for home-working or study.
Voids are down as demand for rental properties in the area goes from strength to strength. In fact, the average void period in England in July stood at 14 days – the lowest average recorded since August 2019.
