There is a growing trend of renters looking to get out of the city due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Guy Meacock, director of buying agency Prime Purchase.

He said: “The rental market in the country is busy with a growing trend of people getting out of the city to what is seen as a safer haven in the countryside.

“The situation with coronavirus is changing so rapidly that we are almost taking it on an hourly basis.”

Meacock added: “The top end of the market is being particularly affected as many international clients simply can’t travel to view property.

“The limitation on moving will have an acute impact on the upper end but it is still too early to say how much it will affect the domestic market.”
