There have not been any weaknesses detected in landlord rent, according to Assetz chief executive Stuart Law.

The representative from the property investment adviser group said that having assessed all the evidence, his organisation thinks "rents are pretty firm".

His comments come after's Rental Index showed that the average rent collected by private landlords in June was up on May's figure - the first monthly rise since August last year.

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyor research also indicated that its members are confident rents will increase in the coming months, as the private rented sector becomes less flooded and more homeowners focus on selling their properties.

Mr Law said: "There have been wobbles here and there in certain buildings as they come on the market, but in the big picture, rents have been very firm because all the demand that used to buy property has swung over to renting instead."
