Another year of rising demand for rental property shows no signs of abating, according to Yorkshire's largest residential letting specialists.

Linley & Simpson - whose eight-branch network includes offices in Leeds city centre, Horsforth and Roundhay, as well as Ilkley, York, Harrogate, Wetherby and Wakefield - has let more homes in the first eight months of 2010 than in any comparable timescale in its 12-year history.

More home-buyers continue to be unwilling or unable to step on to the property ladder, following the continental trend and preferring to rent - not least because of the flexibility it offers. A growth in the number of single-person households is also triggering extra interest in renting.
