Rented Housing

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many residential lettings were marketed in (a) England and (b) Wales in the last year for which figures are available. (143470)

Information on how many residential lettings were marketed in England and Wales is not held centrally.

However the Survey of English Housing (SEH) asks private renters how long they have been in their current accommodation. In 2005-06, 960,000 of the estimated 2.5 million private renters in England had been resident for less than 12 months.
