Landlords needed for LSE research project on London’s private rented sector

Thursday, April 20th, 2023 - London School of Economics

Private landlords are being invited to participate in a research project on rental supply in London that is being carried out by the London School of Economics and Savills.

The aim of the research is to understand why there has been a reduction in supply of private rented properties, with a particular focus on lower cost accommodation in London.

Whether its taxation, regulation, inflation, proposals to abolish section 21, the Mayor’s desire to implement a rent cap, or something else, the research findings will provide help better understand the factors influencing London’s private rented sector.

The study is funded by London Councils, Trust for London and Capital Letters with the research report expected to be published in mid-2023.

The online survey should take around 10 minutes to complete and is available here. The survey closes on 1 May 2023.

Richard Tacagni, MD, London Property Licensing, is on the Advisory Group for the research project and is encouraging landlords to take part.
