London Rental Market 2023

AdobeStock 300834944

Rising Demand, Increased Rents, and Growing Investment Opportunities

Over the past year, the demand for living in London has witnessed a significant surge, resulting in the highest level of net additions since the Brexit referendum. As city dwellers return post-pandemic, the population growth has outpaced the supply of housing, exacerbating the existing undersupply issue. This has created immense pressure on London’s rental market, especially considering the presence of over 4 million renters.

According to statistics from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), London rents have increased by 4.4% in the twelve months leading up to January 2023, marking a rise from 4.2% in the previous twelve months ending in December 2022.

Last year alone, investors allocated nearly £3 billion to build-to-rent schemes in London, reflecting the rapid growth and increased capital influx within this sector. Particularly in the wake of the pandemic, renters are increasingly seeking high-quality housing options, and our portfolio of newbuild offerings caters to their needs, especially for corporate tenants.
