Another month and another common theme – crucial figures are on the rise. Inflation, bank rates and mortgages rates are edging up across Europe and in the UK, while the value of the Pound continues to be affected by a recent change in political leadership. We complete October, however, with a period of stabilisation that has allowed many rents across London, Amsterdam and Paris to gradually edge up.

September is a month that will be remembered for currency turmoil, with a weakening euro, a catastrophic pound, and rates – both interest and mortgage – affecting finances. As a result, rents are getting cheaper for some and more expensive for others, depending on which currency you are using. Klippa takes an overview of the lettings landscape in London, Amsterdam, and Paris.

City living is back on the radar, especially as many European countries are beginning to relax international travel, workplace and hospitality restrictions. It was inevitable that rental values would start to rise in line with a return to city activity, but in the cases of London, Paris and Amsterdam, the majority of monthly rental costs have started to rise very early in the year – albeit subtly.

4 Forecasts for UK Lettings in 2022

As another year draws to a close, Klippa Relocation looks forward to 2022 and flags up the salient lettings changes that may lie ahead. Of course, ‘may’ is the operative word as many new rules and regulations that we expected to see in 2021 never materialised.

With the wider global outlook still at the mercy of Covid, we underline that our thoughts are merely educated predictions and relocators should always check in with our experts to get the latest on the private rental sector.

Relocating to Amsterdam

IN Amsterdam

As the capital of the Netherlands and the leader of a more liberal lifestyle, Amsterdam needs little introduction. The city is divided into seven districts: Centrum, Oost, West, Nieu-West, Nord, Zuid and Zuid-Oost – all well connected by cycle paths, public transport and even water taxi. 

Although not classed as a coastal city, Amsterdam is linked to open water by the long North Sea Canal and the centre itself is reported to have more than 165 ‘grachten’ (canals) that total in excess of 100 kilometres, with around 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.

Relocating to Paris

Palace of Versailles, Paris, France

Endless romance, haute couture, café culture and exquisite patisseries are all synonymous with Paris but clichés aside, the capital of France remains a prestigious location in which to work and live.

Paris is a northern central city on the banks of the River Seine, with fantastic connections to the rest of Europe – and the world – by air, rail, road and sea. It is the most populated city in France, with over 2 million inhabitants in the centre alone and almost 11 million in the wider Région Parisienne. The city is divided into 20 districts, known as arrondissements, with the underground ‘Metro’ and RER express commuter trains serving the inner-city neighbourhoods and banlieus – the Parisian suburbs.
