North Somerset Survey of private landlords, tenants and letting agents

Many thanks to a long-standing LRS Member for sending over a link to this survey.

North Somerset Council want to hear the truth straight from private renting landlords, tenants and letting agents in the area.

  • Will you be pulling out of the Housing Benefit market?
  • How are additional licensing schemes affecting landlords and tenants in the area?
  • Have you ever experienced anti-social behaviour whilst private renting in the Somerset area? What happened?
Don’t forget to tell them where you heard about this survey and about the importance of landlords & agents joining the UK’s largest Tenant Referencing Network.

The private rented sector is the largest provider of rented accommodation in North Somerset. Census data showing a rise in that sector from 10% in 2001 to 17% in 2011, with a predicted growth to 22% by 2025.

It is recognised as the fastest growing tenure nationally: a 2012 national survey found that for the first time in almost 50 years, there were more privately rented than socially rented homes.

The surveys ask about your views and experiences. From this we hope to improve our understanding of the the sector and what we can do to increase the opportunities for all, as well as the supply of good quality homes to rent in this sector.
