July’s data from the Agency Express Property Activity Index has indicated a spike in activity across the UK lettings market.

National month on month figures for new listings ‘To Let’ sat at 8.5%, properties ‘Let’ sat at 6% and year on year figures exceeded those recorded 12 months previous.

Commenting on the Property Activity Index Lettings Report, Stephen Watson Managing Director of Agency Express said:

July has been an unexpected month for the UK lettings market. Usually we would see slower movement throughout the summer holidays but this month’s activity, which is somewhat reflective of an increase in our customer base has been buoyant.
