Jane Wood, founder of Jane Wood Property Finder said: “Young professionals who have tried life in the county (often having moved back home during Covid with their parents), find they are missing the buzz of the city and are finding the commute too onerous now that they are back in the office.
“We have also seen an increase in the number of new divorcees who are moving out of the family home and returning to the City for the next stage of their life.”
Graham Hayward, Chief Operating Officer, of Housing Hand. told express.co.uk: “Interest in rental properties has increased as employers are still establishing an appropriate balance with working from home.”
Interestingly Britain’s rush to throw off all remaining Covid restrictions might be partially behind the recent rents hikes.
