Rents are back on the rise after the market sprung into life "unseasonably early" this year, lettings agents have said.

The typical rent rose by 0.1% in January to £712 a month in England and Wales, the first month-on-month rise since October, according to LSL Property Services, which owns chains Your Move and Reeds Rains.
