Social Housing Survey: private flat owners and refurbishment

The University of Oxford is carrying out a survey of the experiences of social housing providers in delivering refurbishment in blocks of flats with leaseholders. The presence of leaseholders in a block can sometimes make refurbishment difficult. This is likely to be a growing issue as social housing providers look to more ambitious energy efficiency retrofits to protect their tenants from fuel poverty in the long term. If you work in social housing please do complete this survey or alternatively forward to colleagues working in asset management or leaseholder relations.
