According to the latest government data, on average, there are 3 rental properties for every 7 owned properties in the UK. However this divide isn’t uniform, the proportion of rented to owned properties varies greatly across each county. To demonstrate these differences we have compiled an interactive heat-map that displays where rental hotspots are, as well as where homeownership is still the norm.
The redder an area is the greater the proportion of rentals there are, and the bluer an area is the greater the proportion of owned properties there are.
The regions with the average rental price labelled N/A, is due to data not being available at time of production.
Please note to view and interact with the heat map you will need an up-to-date browser, such as Firefox (28+), Chrome (34+) or Internet Explorer (9.0+).
