Q2 was ‘the beginning of long-awaited stabilisation in the London rental market’

Foxtons reports an easing of rental value declines in PCL

Average rents continued to fall across many parts of the capital in Q2 this year, according to the latest London Lettings Report by Foxtons, although rising demand has throttled the pace of decline back a touch, in what the agency calls “the beginning of long-awaited stabilisation in the London rental market”.

Increased demand “has started to absorb the increase in rental stock which has been seen over the past year,” but drooping rental values mean that total annual returns on rental properties have dipped to an average of just under 10%. Although, given wider economic machinations and a downward trend, that’s still not a bad investment choice for most.


Key London rental market stats, Q2 2017 (via Foxtons)

  • New renters per new property instructed: 6.3 (up from 6.1 in Q1)
  • Properties let on 2+ year tenancies: 47% (down from 50% in Q1)
  • Gross yields for flats: 4.5% (down from 4.6% in Q1)
  • Total return for flats: 9.4% (down from 14.4% in Q1)

As PCL’s sales market trundled at a very low ebb, the lettings sector in Zone 1 strengthened in the second quarter of the year compared to the first – but demand in Zone 2 continued to be the strongest of all, which Foxtons says offers “the highest premium on furnished properties”, at 21.9% (compared to just 7.8% in Zone 1). The most significant fall in rents in Q2 was – in an about-turn from Q1 – seen in Zones 3-6.

This data indicates that the capital’s rental scene is still dominated by domestic tenants, who account for 39% of all renters (down from 41% in Q1); the proportion of renters from Asia and the Middle East saw a 3.9% increase to 13.1% in Q2.

Ed Phillips, Foxtons’ Managing Director of Lettings: “We’ve spoken before about how the lettings market traditionally benefits from uncertainty in the sales market, as potential buyers turn to the flexibility offered by renting. With the sales market in the capital still a long way from returning to consistently strong growth, an increasing number of Londoners are indeed being drawn to the rental sector. This is demonstrated by a 3.3% increase in the average number of renters registered with Foxtons for every new property instructed in Q2 2017. While this might not appear to be a significant increase, it comes against a backdrop of decline, suggesting that green shoots are starting to appear.”
