Rents are rising at the fastest pace since 2008 as strong demand outstrips supply, according to the property website Zoopla..

Across the UK, private sector rents in September were 4.6% higher than a year earlier at £968 per month on average, marking the strongest growth in 13 years, Zoopla found.

We’d like to hear from private renters in the UK looking for property now about their experiences of the rental market.
