July 2017 - General election has little impact on rent prices across England and Wales
Continued progress in tenant finances
The financial situation of tenants improved again in June as the proportion of renters in arrears decreased, Your Move found. The percentage of households in England and Wales in arrears was 7% in June 2017, well below the 9.6% recorded a month ago which could be an encouraging sign.
Proportion of tenants in arrears remains well below the all-time high of 14.6%, recorded in February 2010.
