Inquilinos en el RU "enfrentan una crisis sin pecedentes"

By Ninian Carter

July 21, 2023 - El costo promedio de los alquileres para nuevos inquilinos en Londres se ha disparado a un máximo récord de £2.567 ($3,310) al mes – un incremento de 28% en solo cuatro años, debido a la demanda desenfrenada y tasas hipotecarias más altas.

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”.
