Highlights from the UK’s private and social rented sector headlines: July 2021

Read time:

July is shaping up to be an important month, not just for our industry but for the whole country.

In the latest issue of the PayProp Rent Report, e-mailed to subscribers last week, we shared the most impactful recent developments.

  • In our first story of the July Rent Report, we talk about COVID-19 rules. What can agents in England now legally do, and what are they likely to do in practice?
  • In our second story, we look at the potential impact of new funds announced by the Scottish and Welsh governments to help tenants pay off COVID-related rent arrears.
  • A new HomeLet survey puts the average UK rent at £1,000 for the first time ever. We look at the factors behind record rents – and ask if they will keep rising.
  • We return to Wales for our fourth story as the government cracks down on second home ownership. What does it mean for private landlords?
  • In our fifth story, a recent wave of buyouts and integrations is changing the shape of the PropTech sector. Will a few companies rule the roost, or will agents still have plenty of choices?
  • Finally, Agents Giving is getting ready to name the country’s most charitable estate and letting agents in the Fundraising Champion Awards. We share how you can enter – and how you can get a head start on next year’s competition.
