Tenancy agreements continue to lengthen
Posted on 30:01:2014

Although renting privately is regarded as a short-term measure in the UK, Lemontree has noticed an increase in average tenancy length since it began in 2009.

Research on Lemontree’s portfolio shows that over 60% of its tenants have rented for two years or longer, with this figure expected to rise with emergence of ‘Generation Rent’.

Despite claims that increasing rents in the UK are causing a debt crisis for tenants, Lemontree can report a more positive outlook with little change in tenant arrears in 2013.

With over 200 properties in our portfolio in a tenancy agreement, we are seeing a positive picture with average rent arrears of just 0.5%.

Overall, 58% of landlords predict tenant demand will grow in the next 12 months and nearly a fifth expect to expand their portfolios in 2014, the latest landlord sentiment survey from LSL Property Services found.
