Renting privately in York

Recognising the importance of the private rented housing market, City of York Council is about to build on its understanding of the sector through a wide-reaching consultation exercise.

The consultation will run from 17October until 21 November 2014.

The council will be seeking views of tenants, landlords, letting agents, the wider community and other interested groups. This information will help to see if the council is undertaking the right actions to support the sector and to decide what it could do in the future.
Through its housing strategies the City of York Council is committed to supporting and, where necessary, improving the sector, which makes up nearly 18 per cent of households in this growing city which has grown from 10 per cent in 2001.

To complete the questionnaire go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PCJS9VK or, please contact the council’s Housing Standards and Adaptations Team on 01904 552300 or call in West Offices for a paper copy.
