Statistics on the private rental market in England and in each local authority district including the London Borough of Southwark are published by the Valuation Office Agency and are available at the following link.
The Valuation Office Agency advises that because the composition of this sample changes over time, it is not possible to compare median rents provided in this publication with statistics in previous publications to infer trends in the rental market over time. The statistics therefore provide a snapshot that shows the range of rents across England.
The official source on change over time in cost of renting in Great Britain and London, is the Office for National Statistics Index of Private Housing Rental Prices available at the following link.
