    “Families are leaving the capital as valuations rise 37% in three years and rents surge 10%”, The Week reports 

    The following are figures and reasons why families are moving out of London:

    • According to official immigration data, over 30,140 more people in their thirties left London than moved in last year
    • The above is up by around half from 20,590 – three years ago
    • Analysis of Land Registry data by campaign group Generation Rent shows the average sale valuation in the capital during that time was £410,455, a rise of 37% in three years. 
    • The average house price across the rest of the UK increased by 17%
    • The Guardian reports that rents have increased over that period, a 10% increase in London compared to 4% elsewhere
    • Research from Lloyds Bank found that by moving to towns within a one-hour train journey outside the capital, homebuyers can save £450,000- the equivalent of 89 years times the average annual travel cost

    Generation Rent director, Betsy Dillner, said:

    “London is an incredible city and the decision to move away isn’t taken lightly. These people are leaving friends and family in order to find a home they can afford and some are leaving their jobs.

    “This should worry everyone in London, from employers facing a loss of skills to communities losing valued neighbours – and particularly (London Mayor) Sadiq Khan, whose housing policies will need to stop this exodus.”
