Research carried out by Paragon Bank indicates tenant demand stands at 62%, which is a record high. BVA BDRC started tracking these figures in 2011, which is the highest percentage seen in the study.

The opening quarter of 2022 shows that the number of people looking for private rental property has grown significantly in recent years.

Big increase in tenants looking for rental property

Comparing the percentage of landlords saying they have seen increased tenant demand in the opening quarter of 2022 with those of the same quarter in 2021 is double. In the opening quarter of 2020, only 16% of landlords felt demand was growing for rental property.

Significant demand for rental property seen by landlords

More than one third of landlords have seen a “significant increase” in tenant demand this year, and 28% have seen a slight increase.

Moray Hulme, mortgage sales director for Paragon Bank spoke to the Landlord Today site, saying; “Another record high in the proportion of landlords reporting increasing tenant demand reaffirms the need to increase the supply of homes in the private rented sector. There is evidence of landlords exiting the sector with many citing increasing tax and regulatory requirements making their lettings business more arduous to operate. While it is clearly important that landlords are taxed appropriately and the sector is regulated to ensure high standards are maintained, we must ensure that buy-to-let remains attractive enough to investors who are vital in supplying the properties needed to meet demand.”
