Rent prices are rising faster in Scotland than anywhere else in the UK, according to new ­figures.

Average monthly rents north of the Border have risen by more than a tenth, 11.7 per cent, in the past year from £571 to £638, mainly due to a large 8.7 per cent jump between October and November, according to letting support agency HomeLet.
