RENTS: SpareRoom.co.uk says rent in­creases in the North­ern pow­er­house re­gions re­main high in com­par­i­son to the rest of the UK. On av­er­age, rents in Manch­ester, Liver­pool, Hull, New­cas­tle, Sh­effield, Leeds and Brad­ford in­creased by four per cent be­tween the last quar­ters of 2015 and 2016. Rents in Brad­ford rose sig­nif­i­cantly, in­creas­ing by seven per cent to £323, while prices fell in Lon­don. SpareRoom says that rents are steadily in­creas­ing in com­muter towns as UK ten­ants choose to make the move out of larger cities. Sal­ford was num­ber one in the top 10 post towns for the high­est de­mand in quar­ter four 2016.
