  • The rental market is about to enter its busiest time of the year. Analysis from Dataloft Rental Market Analytics reveals that, over the last three years, on average 22% of each year’s tenancies have begun during August and September.
  • We estimate that this equates to just under 200,000 new tenancies which are set to begin over the coming weeks.
  • The flurry of activity at this time of year is a combination of students seeking accommodation before term starts, new graduates beginning new jobs and families looking to settle into new homes before the next academic year.
  • At the same time, there is also a surge in existing tenancies coming up for renewal around this time of year which further boosts competition for rental properties, should occupiers seek to move.
