Buy-to-let regulations fuel rent rises

Estate agent Your Move analysed rental prices on around 20,000 properties and found the average rent in England and Wales rose by 3.1% in the past year to £874.

The rise in rental prices can be attributed to the recent tax changes affecting landlords, such as the mortgage interest relief and 3% stamp duty land tax surcharge.

Tax changes have also restricted the supply of new properties on the market, with a fall in housing stock levels pushing up rent prices.
