Housing Rents In The UK : 2018 - 2019

The steady migration of populations from small towns to bigger cities and metros as well as an influx of foreign migrants has over the years contributed to the rise in the cost of living in the UK. Housing is probably the worst hit especially when it comes to buying one and takes the most money out of the monthly paycheck.

Homeownership affordability has moved into the realm of the wealthy, and the majority of the populace is unable to own a home, which has led to rapid growth in the private housing renting market. Rents have in turn been steadily rising with demand and competition especially in London and its suburbs. In areas where rents are affordable, it still makes up the largest chunk of household spending.

Today, the UK is facing a housing crisis of sorts as the costs of buying a home has become out of reach for the common person, especially for first-time buyers as the house prices have multiplied much more rapidly as compared to the wages. The average cost of a home in England is about 7.9 times higher than average earnings. In the capital, London, the figure is much higher.

The BBC conducted an independent analysis Through Hometrack which indicates that average renting period in England has increased to about 4.3 years. Also, from the year 2006 on, the number of new rentals increased to 1.3 million or 24%. New sales have fallen as compared to private renting since the year 2008. There has also been a spike in average rent cost per month by 19% in the decade from 2007 to 2017 both in England and Wales. London witnessed the highest rise over the last 10 years with a massive 29% increase with rent averaging £1,590 per month. This was proportional to earnings as London also recorded the highest average earnings in the year 2017 of £692 per week. On the other end of the spectrum in the North East, private rents have shown a marginal decrease in the past decade that currently stand at £544.
