Average rental costs in the United Kingdom (UK) February 2018 and February 2019, by region (In GBP)

Average cost of rent in the United Kingdom (UK) 2018-2019, by region The average rent for a house in the United Kingdom (UK) increased in 11 of its 12 regions in February 2019, when compared to the same month a year before. The average rental of 1,599 British pounds in Greater London was higher than the national average of 940 GBP. Housing in the UK is more expensive than in other European countries, largely because of prices in the capital city of London.
UK increasingly a rental market

The data provided here was based on rents paid, instead of advertising costs or asking prices. In recent years, the UK’s residential property market has slowly become more favorable for renters as indicated by the growing house price to rent ratio.

Is London becoming too expensive?

Londoners spent the biggest proportion of their income on rent, over more than one third of a household’s income. High rents might have sparked a move away from the capital to other regions in the UK, such as the South East (Brighton and Southampton), the West Midlands (Birmingham) and the North West (Liverpool, Manchester, Blackpool and Preston).
