We were really pleased that the BBC published our recent analysis of the Private Rented Sector in Scotland http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-10698297
If you have not seen it our latest issue (No 14) of ‘Trends in Scottish Residential Lettings’ for Q2 2010 reported average monthly rents at £654 in Scotland, a 3.3% rise over the year. Rents in the 3 largest Cities eased upwards over the year as well. In Q2 2010 Edinburgh had an average monthly rent of £755, up 4.3% on the year, while Aberdeen rents were £854 up 2.0%. Glasgow saw rents of £590 which were up 2.6% on the previous year.
The Citylets Rental Index for Scotland stood at 110.9 in June which is the second highest figure recorded since the Index was initiated four and a half years ago (Jan 2006 =100). This and the steadily improving Time to Let figures are a clear indication of the increased demand for good quality rental property. Many tenants are extending their leases and pondering their first steps on to the property owning ladder.
