High house prices continue to drive the demand for rental properties

Research from Hampton’s International reveals that it has become 77% harder to purchase a property in London since 2010. This is a result of the fall in average incomes and the rise in childcare costs and house prices. The figures also revealed that the average young family has only £347.00 spare annually after mortgage payments and essential spending. Recent studies that measured house prices, incomes, interest rates and the cost of living found that the amount of disposable cash that the average London family has left over is 22 times lower than the average UK family of four.

There has been a wave of young homebuyers that have been helped onto the property ladder by the government’s shared equity and mortgage guarantee Help to Buy scheme as well as parents and grandparents downsizing their homes and funding deposits. Despite this financial assistance the issue of mortgage costs, rising bills and falling salaries results in the depletion of available funds for homeowners in the capital.
