Improving the lives of Brent’s private renters

Closed 31 May 2021

Opened 10 May 2021


The number of people living in private rented housing in Brent is rapidly growing, and people live in private rented housing for many different reasons. Brent Council now wants to learn more about the lives of these residents so it can improve the services it offers.

We want to hear from any private renters living in Brent, on their circumstances (their home, neighbourhood, etc.) and experiences (living in Brent, interacting with the council, etc.).

This is an opportunity to have your say in how the council delivers the services that help you.

The survey shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes to complete and none of the questions are mandatory - so feel free to skip a question and move to the next one. The survey is open up to the 31st May 2021.

After the survey, we will arrange short telephone interviews with some responders to learn more about you and your circumstances. Any selected for interview will receive a £50 gift voucher for their time. If you're happy to be interviewed, please tell us at the end of the survey.
