How long do tenants stay?

On average, renters stay 18 months in their rental homes. This is six months longer than the average 12-month lease length that they sign up for. Older renters are likely to stay in their rental homes for longer and there is a steady upward trend in tenancy-length by age bracket. People in their 40s stay twice as long as those in their 20s. Renters moving from London and the East of England, on average, live the longest in their rental homes at just over 20 months. Scottish renters, on the other hand, average 16 months in a tenancy, the shortest length of time.
