June 2017 - Seven UK regions see rents rise on annual basis
Tenant finances improve in May
The proportion of tenants across England and Wales in arrears decreased this month, Your Move found. The percentage of households in arrears was 9.6% in May 2017, down slightly on the 9.7% recorded a month ago.
Despite this short-term increase, market trends continue to be encouraging. The proportion of tenants in arrears remains well below the all-time high of 14.6%, recorded in February 2010.
This survey and its underlying methodology is created and reviewed in partnership with Cebr. It is based on analysis of approximately 20,000 Your Move properties across England and Wales.
