May 2017 - Stable rental market, with growth moving away from the capital
Second month of arrears increases
The proportion of tenants across England and Wales in arrears increased for the second successive month, Your Move found. In April 2017 the percentage of households in arrears was 9.7%, higher than the 9.1% 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.
