Mixed Picture on Rental Prices across UK
Average rents across the UK are edging upwards, but this 'national average' gives a misleading picture. In London rents are up at least by 10% as stock is so tight and tenants are having to compete for properties.

Don't let the 'rush' push you into making a decision there and then, you still need to get the agreement checked by a legal lettings specialist.
