April 2017 - Demand for family properties pushes up prices

Tenant finances remain stable

  • Across all of Scotland 10.5% of tenancies had arrears of one day or more during March 2017, Your Move Scotland found.

  • This is exactly the same ratio as was recorded in February, suggesting tenant finances have continued their strength at the start of 2017.
  • Scotland’s arrears rate for this month remains above the level found in England and Wales. Across these two nations the average rate of arrears was 9% during March.

  • The methodology used to calculate figures in this report is created and reviewed in partnership with Cebr. It is based on analysis of Your Move’s rental properties across Scotland.
