Competitive Offers On Rental Properties The demand supply imbalance in the rental market has remained throughout the year, with 17% of agents reporting that renters often offer above the asking rent, while 44% said that they sometimes do.

The average UK rent is £1,279, up 8.9% annually, but there has been a monthly fall of 0.3%, indicating a seasonal cooling in demand after a busy summer period.
