Landlord & Tenant Survey - What Do You Think?

In support of the new strategy for the Private Rented Sector which may justify Selective Licensing for all landlords in the city - Portsmouth City Council are asking for your views and those of your tenants. It is simple, two page survey (for landlords, slightly more for tenants) and we worry that unless enough people make their views clear, too small a sample may lead to conclusions we are not happy with in the months ahead. So do click the link, do complete the survey and do add comments outlining your views on the need for more or less regulation and what challenges or problems concern you most - it will only take a couple of minutes and could help avoid the many hours and £'s that Selective Licensing will cost you if introduced later this year.

Text supplied by PCC: 

"Landlords and private renters across Portsmouth are being asked to help inform the first steps of a citywide strategy.

Portsmouth City Council will be drafting a new private rental sector strategy in the new year which will set out how it works with landlords and supports residents.

Ahead of this both renters and landlords are being asked to take a short survey asking about their circumstances and how what their priorities are for a property.

The survey is designed to give council staff a snapshot of the city's rental landscape and will help develop the first draft of the new strategy.

The draft strategy will go to a public decision meeting for consideration by the Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Darren Sanders, and if approved will then go out for wider public consultation.

Residents and landlords can take the survey online at

Hard copies of the survey are available from Portsmouth City Council's housing offices in Buckland, Landport, Paulsgrove, Portsea and Somerstown.

The survey closes on 20 January."
