Private tenants living in cold out of fear of eviction

Issued: 03/02/2017

Housing tenants in the private rented sector are choosing to live in cold homes out of fear of high heating bills and losing their tenancy, according to new research from Sheffield Hallam University.

The research, carried out by Sheffield Hallam University's Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) and funded by the Eaga Charitable Trust, an independent grant-giving trust committed to combatting fuel poverty, was developed to provide a better understanding of the lived reality of energy inefficiency in private rented sector housing.

Research report for Voluntary Right to Buy pilot published

Issued: 11/01/2017

Valuable lessons learned from the Voluntary Right to Buy (VRTB) pilot for housing associations have been published today.

A research report, commissioned by the National Housing Federation and the five participating housing associations, was conducted by the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam during 2016.

The findings have provided key learning points for the sector, the next piloting phase and for the national scheme when it is introduced.
