Whilst tenant demand remains at the inflated levels we have seen for the last 18 months, price increases are slowing down and landlords’ expectations for large rent increases are reducing. This might suggest that despite the supply/demand imbalance, the extraordinary rent increases of the last period are coming to an end.

The tenant location wish list is also reflecting acceptance of greater commute times, as well as WFH flexibility. This is helping spread demand over a wider area, which further takes the heat out of rental pricing.
