UK landlords owed late rent

8 February 2024

The cost-of-living crisis is taking its toll on the private rented sector as tenants struggle to pay their rent on time. According to research from mortgage lender Molo, landlords in the UK are owed an average of £725 in overdue rent.

Those in Yorkshire and the North East are particularly affected, experiencing the highest number of late payments each year. Meanwhile, landlords in Greater London are owed the most amount of money.

VP of Strategy at Molo, Mark Michaelides, commented, “Our recent research found that over half (54%) of landlords have implemented payment plans for tenants facing late rent.” He added, “As a tenant, it’s important not to ignore the problem. I’d advise tenants to communicate promptly, explaining reasons for delays and requesting additional time. Open dialogue can lead to collaborative solutions.”
