Rented Housing: Greater London

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many private sector landlords in London own fewer than 10 properties; and what proportion housing stock in London such properties represent. (246803)

Based on the Private Landlords Survey for 2006, indications of the number of small landlords have only been modelled at the national level. The limited sample size is insufficient to provide a robust basis for deriving model-based regional estimates.

It is estimated that 72 per cent. of all private sector landlords in England in 2006 had portfolios of fewer than 10 properties.
