Private tenants have your say about how COVID-19 is affecting your tenancy
One in five households in North Wales are occupied by private tenants. The coronavirus and lockdowns have impacted all of us. For private tenants, the impact may have resulted in hardship and ultimately an increased risk of homelessness.
For the first time, North Wales Local Authorities are consulting with private tenants to see how they are dealing with the impacts of COVID-19.
North Wales councils and their partners offer a range of services for private tenants such as:
- advice and assistance to private tenants to prevent the loss of tenancies
- help with budgeting and maximising income
- signposting for support for domestic abuse
- tenancy rights and if it is not possible to save a tenancy, help to find alternative accommodation
To help local councils plan for the delivery of services into 2021 private tenants are being invited to complete a short questionnaire and share their experiences.
Created in partnership with TPAS Cymru (external website) the tenant participation service, the questionnaire will also provide you with information and where to go for advice or help. You will also be given the opportunity to sign up to Tenant Pulse – the voice of tenants in Wales (external website). For more information about Tenant Pulse click here. Everyone signing up for Tenant Pulse has the chance of winning £150 shopping vouchers.
The consultation is open until 30 December 2020.
