Hollywood actor Rebel Wilson has been caught up in tougher leasing conditions facing many landlords across the over supplied Sydney rental market.

She had had to drop her asking rental on her recently settled off the plan Gladesville investment apartment.

The two bedroom garden Bella apartment that features a private courtyard with small lawn was put up for rent asking $660 a week last December.

Wilson will now take $595 a week. She had sought a $625 a week tenant in January but one didn’t emerge.

The number of vacant properties for rent in Sydney jumped 40% from 15,775 last January to 22,426 this year, according to recent SQM data.
