English Private Landlords Survey 2018 (2019).

Conducted by MHCLG this survey of landlords and letting agencies aims to understand the characteristics and experiences of landlords and how they acquire, let a manage and maintain privately rented accommodation.  The last survey was in 2010.  Although not directly a tourism issue, the dynamics of the provision of affordable accommodation in popular tourism areas is of interests.  There are also a number of significant ongoing changes occurring within the sector that are not necessarily fully picked up yet in this report These include a switch from the longer term private rental to the short holiday letting market, arguably driven at least in large part by  a combination of  changes to taxation (the incentive) and the burgeoning development of unregulated sharing accommodation platforms (the opportunity):
