UK Mieter “erleben eine Krise wie nie zuvor”

By Ninian Carter

July 21, 2023 - Durchschnittliche Mieten für neue Mieter in London haben eine Rekordhöhe von £2.567 (€2.966) pro Monat erreicht – eine Steigerung um 28% in nur vier Jahren, angefeuert von hoher Nachfrage und hohen Hypothekarzinsen.

Rental costs for new tenants in London have hit a record in the second quarter of 2023, as soaring demand and higher mortgage rates motivate landlords to raise prices.

Home renters in the capital must now pay on average £2,567 (€2,966, $3,298) a month – up 14% on 2022, and 28% on 2019.

Outside London, asking rents also reached a record – £1,231 (€1,422, $1,582) per month, up 9% on 2022, and by a third from 2019.

The increases mean thousands of people are battling to stay in their homes – sure to be a hot topic for both major political parties ahead of a general election expected next year.

As Polly Neate, chief executive of housing charity Shelter, puts it: renters are “facing a crisis like never before”.
