Article saying headline rents have fallen for first time since 2010 - but this is misleading as it is only so in London and the South-east. This is caused by short term over supply due to landlords rushing to buy property before the new stamp duty changes came into effect last year and will work through the system fairly quickly. Elsewhere in the country rents continue to rise - average of 2.2% according to ONS. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39253693
