Private Landlords Survey

Information and documents relating to the Private Landlords Survey

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government now surveys private landlords and letting agents using the English Private Landlord Survey.

The Private Landlords Survey aims to provide a snapshot of the composition and experience of landlords and how they (together with any agent) acquire, let, manage and maintain privately rented accommodation.

A similar survey of private landlords was carried out in 2001, 2003 and 2006 as part of the English house condition survey. These are available on the National Archives:
