It said in the first nine months of 2022, rent price rises broke records by increasing 13.7%. It cited the return of international students and young professionals to London as key factors, but also highlighted a reoccurring lack of rental properties as something that continues to underpin sustained rental growth.

Expats around the world are already starting to experience the worst cost-of-living crisis in a generation, with budgets squeezed by tax rises and everyday purchases going up in price. The biggest change for most expats has been the increase in the energy cap on April 1, but many other price rises will add hundreds of pounds to an expat’s household spending too. The net result of rising inflation could leave thousands of expats worse off this year.
