Young renters driving the demand for rental accommodation in London

The UK housing market has been experiencing many changes lately. New research has discovered that more people are living alone, and more are intending to rent for the long term. A recent Housing Futures Survey discovered that 75% of the 43% of single people surveyed expected to be living on their own in rental accommodation in five years time.

The research suggests that future locations and housing types are influenced by available access to technology. Almost 36% of the respondents interviewed stated that they would not consider moving anywhere without mobile coverage and broadband connectivity. The research also highlights the rise in alternative family structures. The younger generation is more open to the idea of renting which has led to a surge in the demand for suitable rented properties.

Younger people are showing a preference for city centre residences over suburban properties on the outskirts. London landlords have seen substantial success as a result of the rise in renters throughout the capital and the potential for London landlords and investors remains strong. Buyers are turning into tenants at a rapid rate. They want well presented properties, convenient transport links and trouble free tenancies.
