Landlords & Benefits Survey
We are interested in understanding the views of private landlords of the benefit system and whether you have been put off renting properties to benefit claimants. Universal Credit is changing how this will work and who it will affect. We want to know what you think and what would make it easier for you to rent to people in receipt of benefits.

This questionnaire is anonymous and should only take a few moments to complete. Thanks for your time.
