UK PRS Rents Highest In EuropePRS Rents Still Increasing

Rent paid by tenants in the UK’s private rental sector, (PRS), increased by 2.1% in the 12 months up to and including March 2015, according to the latest published figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), drawing claims from the National Housing Federation (NHF), that the UK is the most expensive country to rent property in within the European union.

In the 12 months to March 2015 UK PRS rents increased by:

  • 2.1% in England
  • 2.1% in Scotland
  • 0.8% in Wales

UK PRS rents are the highest in Europe, taking up 40% of tenant income despite having the shortest length of secure tenancies. In comparison our European counterparts only pay an average of 28% of their income on rent.

The NHF analysed the ONS data and found that on average UK PRS rents of approximately £750 per month for properties were almost double the rental costs of dwellings in countries like Germany and Holland, where average earnings are similar. However, it is worse for tenants in shared UK properties, who typically spent around 55% of their income on rent.

Across Europe, 43% of tenants had moved property in the last five years while in the UK this figure was more like 77%.

When the figures are analysed more closely it works out that approximately 23 minutes of every hour worked by UK PRS tenants is spent on rent; elsewhere in Europe, it is more like only 17 minutes.

The NHF also showed that the UK has repeatedly failed to invest in its own housing stock when compared to European standards, between 1996 and 2011 only 3% of the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was invested in UK housing, compared to 6% in Germany and 5% in France.

Other findings from the analysis include the fact that 72% of tenants renting in the UK private rental sector are employed compared to 62% of residential owner-occupiers.

NHF chief executive David Orr commented on the findings, stating: “UK tenants get a raw deal in comparison to their continental counterparts. High rents are just one symptom of the UK’s housing crisis, as a nation, we are simply not building enough houses due to under investment and problems with the land market.”

Survey Shows UK Public Think Property Investment Is Best Way Forward

Survey Shows UK Public Think
Property Investment Provides Best Returns

A new survey has discovered that 40% of UK residents would rather choose property investment over all other investment types.

The YouGov survey commissioned by InterTrader found that 40% of UK residents reckon that property investment is the best vehicle for generating a good Return On Investment (ROI).

In addition, over half of UK residents would consider a more active role in managing their own investment opportunities, with 38% of respondents saying they would not trust financial professionals to generate high enough positive returns with their hard earned savings.

The findings of the YouGov survey were published amid the concern that parts of the UK, especially London and the South East, are experiencing a localised and unsustainable property bubble.

What's Stopping You Achieving Your Property Goals?

What’s Stopping You Achieving Your Property Goals?

Learn How To Achieve All Your Property Goals!

There are many paths that people can follow in order to reach their property goals, but do you know which is the right one for you?

  • Do you follow your instincts?
  • Do you follow the same path as others without knowing what the outcome will be?
  • Do you want success but don’t understand how to reach it?

Would you like to find out how you can achieve all of your property goals?

Click here to watch a short video.

Have you ever wondered why some people are incredibly successful property investors whilst some
people just can’t seem to get it to work for them? There are any number of driving forces behind a person’s desires, but what are the best ways to achieve success?

To be a successful property investor you need 3 key elements:

1. Specialist Knowledge
2. Mindset and Belief
3. Support

There are plenty of ways to acquire specialist knowledge,  and there are even ways of gaining support on your property journey, but people find that they struggle to get themselves in the correct mindset mainly because of an unsupportive environment.

At lease that was the case until now!

On Sunday 19th January 2014, founder of the Property Investors Network (PIN), top UK property educator and best-selling author of “Property Magic”, Simon Zutshi, is running a one off,  one-day seminar in Birmingham specifically designed to help aspiring property investors develop a winning mindset to achieve their property goals or anything else that they desire.

This is not a gimmick or paltry excuse to make people part with money, this is a unique opportunity to understand a vital element that can make the difference between success and failure for many property investors.

There is a cost involved to attend the live event, but if property investors don’t invest in themselves and their education, they are already on the way towards failure.

Don’t become a sad statistic, take action and make it positive!

Click here to find out more!

Without the correct mindset, many would-be property investors, struggle, flounder, give up and go under because they weren’t mentally ready for the perils and pitfalls of their property journey and they were not prepared for the mental stress that can go with property investing.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Birmingham on the 19th January, this inspirational one-day seminar is also going to be streamed live on the Internet to maximise the benefit to property investors who want to achieve their property goals, more details in the video.

Click here now to watch a short video from Simon who will explain what the day is all about and how you as a property investor can benefit from it.

We are sure you will find this unique opportunity really useful and we will be watching the live stream with a great deal of interest and we will be taking plenty of notes during the day as there will be some incredibly valuable nuggets of information that Simon will be sharing.

This is a unique opportunity for property investors to have a sneak preview behind the scenes of Simon Zutshi’s highly successful Property Mastermind Programme.

We highly recommend you take this golden opportunity and learn from this unique behind the scenes experience because it will help you acheive your property goals!
