Index of private rents and yields

Team from the University of York

A new quarterly index of rents and rental yields from the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York

A new quarterly index of rents and rental yields from the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York provides, for the first time, detailed market information about private residential lettings so as to inform investment decisions and allow comparisons with the returns from alternative investments such as commercial property and equities.

The data for the Index is being collected with help from the Association of Residential Letting Agents and other principal letting agents, the Halifax Building Society, and the Institute of Rent Officers and Rental Valuers. It provides regular, reliable information on rents, yields and market activity at the local and regional level. Such information has not previously been available, but without it financial institutions are unlikely to invest in the sector.
