English Private Landlord Survey 2018

Thursday 01 March 2018

More people are living in the private rented sector than ever before. This makes it even more important that we understand more about private landlords and the homes they provide.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), together with their partners at NatCen Social Research, are running a nationwide survey to gather information from private landlords and letting agents in England.

The survey asks questions about landlords, their agents, the kind of properties they let, the people they let to, the problems they might encounter, and how legislative changes might impact on landlords and their businesses.

The information collected will be used by the government to gain a more thorough and accurate understanding of the private rented sector to inform future government policy.

The survey runs for six weeks over this March and April, with landlords and agents being chosen randomly to take part. If you receive a letter or email from your Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme inviting you to participate, please do so.

This is your opportunity to have your say and help inform future government policy for the private rented sector.
