English Housing Survey (PRS)

Filed in Breaking News by on 19th July, 2019 0 Comments

This recently completed English Housing Survey provides a snapshot of the Private Rented Sector (PRS). On the basis of it’s findings, I hope Government ministers will read it and wonder why they are being so hard on the PRS.

The report clearly justifies the need for an active PRS, recognises that the majority of tenancies end because the tenant wishes it to end and that the social housing sector has more issues than houses let by private landlords. With limited savings accrued by tenants, the majority will have little chance to become owner occupants.

It’s an interesting read that could become the catalyst to a more positive approach to the PRS, or is this wishful thinking?
