HomeLet and Let Alliance chief government officer Andy Halstead mentioned:
“We’re edging nearer and nearer to a scenario through which a big portion of potential tenants are merely unable to reside, which is a harmful scenario for the market to be in.
“It’s price saying that excessive rental costs doesn’t equate to all time excessive margins for landlords both. Landlords being unable to depend on rental earnings is a horrible situation.
“The North-East has been out of kilter with the remainder of the UK in current months with few value rises. Nevertheless, July 2023 has seen even the North-East rise 1.8% to £636 PCM. The nationwide skyrocket in lease and mortgage will increase is proof that nobody is successful, when will or not it’s put to a cease?”
