July 2017 - Scottish rental yields continue to perform strongly

Worsening in tenant finances

  • Across the entirety of Scotland, some 18.3% of tenancies had arrears of one day or more during June 2017, Your Move Scotland found.

  • This is higher than the 12.3% recorded last month, suggesting tenant finances have deteriorated between May and June.
  • 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 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.
