Friday 24 March. 5pm. Close of IPPR Survey On Private Renting

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) is carrying out research into the private rented sector (PRS) in the UK, and is looking to understand the views of tenants and residents currently living in the PRS. They are interested in learning about your experiences and keen to know your views on what works, what might need to be changed, and what your ideal tenancy would look like. You do not have to answer all these questions, but they would appreciate your responses on as many of these as you feel able to complete. All your answers will be anonymous and IPPR will not use any information you provide to identify you, or contact you. Please share with your friends, family, and colleagues if they too are private renters in the UK.

Complete survey here

The recent English Housing Survey Headline report shows that the private renter population is now bigger, at 4.5m households, than it was in the early 1960s. Generation Rent comments: ‘Just as slum landlords dominated the housing market back then, there are now 1.35m private rented homes that fail decency standards – you have a 30% chance of living in one.’
