According to studies undertaken for Paragon Bank, the third quarter of 2022 saw the second time there has been a record high from landlords experiencing demand from tenants. The study spoke with over 700 landlords, and there was a net increase of tenant demand of 65%.

In the opening quarter of 2022, 62% was reported, and even allowing for a slight summer lull, the demand for rental property this year is notable.

An interesting part of the study is that only 1% of landlords reported a slight decrease in the level of tenant demand, and no one said there was a significant decrease in tenant demand.

Moray Hulme, mortgage sales director for Paragon Bank, says: “We’ve seen demand for privately rented homes climb consistently since the pandemic. The fact that the all-time high we reported earlier this year has now been surpassed supports our view that the private rented sector remains an essential component of UK housing provision. Renting appeals to people of different demographics and from all walks of life but the flexibility and relative affordability of rented accommodation means its value is even more apparent at what is an economically challenging time for many.”
