The private rented sector has grown considerably over the past twenty years, with the proportion of those in social housing or owning their own home decreasing. In the last 2 years alone there have been significant announcements regarding changes to the sector, from taxation (Mortgage Interest Relief, Stamp Duty Land Tax, Capital Gains Tax for example) to energy (Minimum EPC regulations). The research presented in this report is part of a longitudinal research project that is firstly taking stock of the sector across a number of issues, but also establishing base-line data in order to compare future trends. This report follows on from the Landlord Investment, Finance and Tax Report and from a survey of 2,440 landlords this explores the safety and energy issues affecting the sector.
