Buy-to-Let Index - September 2014



Rents hit fresh record despite sharp slowdown in annual rises

  • New all-time record high of £768 per month for average residential rents across England & Wales
  • Comes despite slower rent rises of just 1.5% in year to September, down from 2.4% in year to August
  • Tenant finances improve with only 7.2% of all rent in arrears, falling from 8.5% in September last year
  • House price rises take landlords’ gross returns to record 13.4% before mortgage or maintenance costs.

Rents have edged to a new all-time record, at a slowing annual rate of just 1.5%, according to the latest Buy-to-Let Index from the UK’s largest lettings agent networks, Your Move and Reeds Rains.

Residential rents across England and Wales now average £768 per month, or £10 higher than in September 2013.

On a monthly basis September’s average rents are 0.8% higher than in August, representing a rise of £7 in absolute terms since the previous month.

Annual growth has slowed dramatically since August, when rents were 2.4% higher than a year before – rising just 1.5% over the twelve months ending September 2014.

David Newnes, director of estate agent Reeds Rains, comments: “Historically rent rises have broadly tracked inflation.  And as the wider cost of living grows ever more slowly, so too has the cost of renting a home.

That said, autumn is always a busy period for the lettings industry, and this has been no exception.  Looking ahead, it is likely that rents in most parts of the UK will have now reached their seasonal peak – so as the market cools along with the autumn weather there may be opportunities for some tenants to pick up a favourable deal."

‘Thank you’ for the dedicated service

Sam Rudd, a Negotiator at Reeds Rains in Hazel Grove was touched by the gesture of kindness by her vendor who made Reeds Rains cakes to say ‘thank you’ for the dedicated service she had received from Sam and the team at the branch.  

Sam successfully overcame various stumbling blocks to make the process of selling the vendors house more straightforward.

Branch Manager Jon Piper says: “Sam took a genuine interest in her customer and always delivered what she said she would do.

Members from Acomb Cricket Club

Local estate agents Reeds Rains, sponsors of Acomb Cricket Club, is delighted the club has been promoted from Division 1 of the York &District Senior League into the Premier Division.

Acomb Cricket Club beat Sessay into second place on the last day of the season, after getting a winning draw away at Bridlington. Sessay lost the top spot and this allowed Acomb Cricket Club to leap to the top. From 5 points behind going into the last day, they ended up 14 in front.

Richard Sykes Chairman says: “There have been 3 main players standing out a mile from the rest of the team, skipper Andy Tute scored 751 runs, Matthew Dale bagged 669, and his brother Joe achieved 532.

Mark Bell was the top wicket taker with 39, followed by Joe Dale taking 28 wickets.  Congratulations to Georgie Brown who reached a hat-trick against Driffield.

Wicket keeper Richard Sykes took 21 people, supported in the outfield by Martin Pepper and Matthew Dale who both got 15 catches, and Joe Dale who took 13.

Going forwards, the first team is now driven to make the top 6 of the premier league next season which will see them promoted into a new structure for 2016, which will see us playing at better grounds against better opposition.  We’re trying to attract a few new players to the club over the off season to boost the numbers throughout the club, and allow our second team to progress up through the divisions also.

We value the support From Reeds Rains in Acomb who have been fantastic to the club during the season.”
