Dr Nancy Holman co-authors with Professor Christine Whitehead a new report for Trust for London. The report, titled Where Now for the Private Rented Sector?, estimates the possible impact on the private rented sector of Covid-19 and rising unemployment; looking at the scale of the current problem, the immediate and longer-term consequences for evictions and homelessness, and potential solutions.

“There could be three times the current number of private tenants in rent arrears in England – affecting as many as 700,000 tenants and their landlords – in the next 12 months, mainly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, warns an analysis by LSE London and Trust for London.”
