Busiest time for rental market

The rental market is about to enter its busiest time of the year. Analysis from Dataloft Rental Market Analytics reveals that 40% of tenancies are set to expire in July, August and September. Usually, the surge in activity is a combination of students seeking accommodation, graduates starting new jobs and families looking to settle into new homes for the next academic year. Post lockdown other factors may influence home movers; more green space, closer to friends and family and a home office. With 14% of tenancies set to expire in July, 16% in August and 10% in September, agents look set for a busy summer, whether renewals or new tenancies.
