About London Rents
London's private rented sector is by far the largest of any region in England. A fifth of all households in London rent privately, and the sector accounts for more than half of housing moves in any given year.
The Mayor recognises the crucial role played by private renting in sustaining the dynamism of London and in providing homes for a diverse range of people, including young professionals, students, recent arrivals to London and people in housing need.
However, there are pockets of sub-standard properties or inadequate management, and the Mayor's draft London Housing Strategy sets out a range of proposals to tackle these problem areas while ensuring that private renting continues to provide variety and choice to London's growing population. One of the Mayor's objectives is to improve the information available to tenants and landlords, and the London Rents Map is a crucial part of his strategy.
The Mayor is grateful to the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) for providing this data on private rents in London. The VOA, the major provider of property valuation services in the public sector, is pleased to assist the GLA in improving its information on the private rented sector in London.
The information published on this site is based on a sample of private tenancies created over the most recent 12 months available. It will be refreshed on a monthly basis. There is around one month’s lag before each set is published. Given how quickly the market can move, the results of the London Rents Map should therefore be taken as indicative of market patterns across London rather than as precise estimates of current market rents. It nevertheless provides an invaluable source of information for all those with an interest in the private rented sector in Greater London.
