Answer for Private sector rents

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please see Appendix 3 for tables showing average rents by borough and by type or size of property between 2004 and 2010. Statistics on average private sector rents in 2011 and 2012 are publicly available from the Valuation Office Agency.

Statistics for the years 2004 to 2009 are from annual 'snapshot' surveys carried out by the GLA. As they are based on a limited sample, the number of cases in some categories is very small and differences between boroughs or between years may therefore not be statistically significant.

The statistics for 2010 are taken from Valuation Office Agency data provided to the GLA. These statistics are averages for the 12-month period leading up to November 2010 and are therefore not strictly comparable to the snapshot surveys from earlier years.
