August 2017 - Capital gains: Edinburgh remains home to highest rents in Scotland

Financial picture improves for tenants

  • Across all regions of Scotland some 16.6% of tenancies had arrears of one day or more during July 2017, Your Move Scotland found.

  • This is an improvement on the previous month, when a ratio of 18.3% was recorded, and suggests that tenants’ finances have improved between June and July.
  • Scotland’s arrears rate for this month remains above the level found in England and Wales. Across both nations, the average rate of arrears was 13.7% this month.

  • 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.
