English term or phrase:voids rising
je ne suis pas sûre qu'il s'agisse de l'annulation de transactions ici :
"rental values fell by 11% in the period, but, as contracted leases could not fall, some rents were still catching up with the net growth since the review some 5 years prior, despite *voids rising.*"
Oui - périodes où il est impossible de louer le bien immobilier par manque de clients. Le problème de "périodes creuses", c'est que ça fait plutôt penser aux locations de vacances. L'article que je cite parle de "down periods", qui est assez parlant, le contexte étant le buy-to-rent.
Sounds odd to me; I find it hard to believe that a native-speaker would ever write 'void' for a vacant property.
It's a little hard to see just who is talking here, and to whom; I wonder if 'voids' might refer to rent increases that were disallowed / refused since the rent review 5 years ago? Could that make any sense at all?
It seems to me they are saying that rents have gone up compared to those of 5 years ago, even though lately (in the last year, for example?) they have fallen back by 11%. As a result, some rents which were being gradually increased to bring them up to the more recent level are still below the newer (but now lower) values, while others may in fact be higher than they strictly ought to be (as they can't be put down).

l'augmentation des périodes où le bien n'est pas loué
Explanation: " At some point, every buy-to-let investor will face the spectre of rental voids but it's what you do about them that makes you either a victim of circumstance of a savvy investor. The smart investor takes action to minimize such down periods and here are a few tips I've found helpful in doing so:
Seasonality: There are certain times of the year when people stay put because they're focused on other things. Summer holidays and Christmas are just a couple of those "things" that affect large numbers of people at the same time. After summer, you'll find that September should see more activity (and you can probably write off most of January, too). The summer dip is particularly relevant in areas of high student density, e.g. university towns, especially if your property might normally be let to these types of people or people related to this business. Wherever possible, then, ensure that your existing tenancy doesn't end around these times. " http://www.womeninpropertyinvestment.com/articles/avoidvoids...
