Cost Of Renting Property More Expensive Than Purchasing Property

The cost of renting property in the UK private rented sector (PRS) is more expensive than actually buying property, according to Zoopla.

Zoopla say the main cause of the narrowing gap is that residential property prices have increased at a faster rate than rents during the past year.

The cost of renting a two-bedroom property in the UK Private Rented Sector is up by an average of £84 (GBP) per month compared to the cost of servicing an interest-only mortgage on the same property, which has risen by just £120 per year.
