Find out about anticipated London rent increase in 2018



According to estate agent Knight Frank, rents in London are predicted to rise 0.5% in 2018, despite the current climate of political and economic uncertainty. 


Furthermore, in the 12 months to May 2018, Knight Frank found that middle price bracket rents in London have increased by 1%, with a particular strengthening of rental values in outer London, where supply has fallen. 


With the cost of renting in London forecast to increase, Shared Ownership represents a great alternative to renting a property privately. Indeed, in most cases, when first time buyers purchase a home with Shared Ownership it results in a cheaper monthly outlay versus renting a property from a private landlord.


Shared Ownership enables buyers to purchase a share of a property (usually between 25% and 75%) and pay a low rent on the remaining share. This significantly reduces the deposit requirement and mortgage amount. Furthermore, Shared Ownership buyers can increase their share at any time.
