Almost a third (29%) of the UK decide to move during the warmer months, compared to just 23% in Spring,

July was found to be the most popular month to move amongst many regions in the UK.

London, South East and the East of England preferred August as their moving month.

Autumn was found to be the second most popular season, with 27% of people moving during this time.

The increase of people moving during the summer months was also reflected in rental enquiries as they reached their highest level during July and August.
