Get Living London, the residential owner and rental management company, commissioned the London School of Economics to investigate whether middle-income families renting in London are less satisfied with private renting than in other cities and if so, why. Using research into historic and policy factors combined with first-hand interviews with 17 families living in private rented accommodation across London, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Delft, London School of Economics sought to provide comparisons across international markets. The research team was led by LSE London, Research Fellow, Kathleen Scanlon. This report has been written and published as a thought leadership piece highlighting issues, interconnections and trends in a key part of the UK’s property market. It is targeted at investors, policy makers, industry specialists and a general readership in order to promote debate and understanding. It is not intended for use directly in either market forecasting or for investment decision purposes, where specialist advice should be sought.
