We have been busy over the past few months refining the criteria used to select our four case study landlords, and identifying, profiling, and recruiting landlords. This process is now complete and our case studies, who we look forward to working with, are:
- Southern Housing, a housing association with 77,000 properties in London, the South-east, the Midlands and the Isle of Wight, which was formed in December 2022 with the merger of Optivo and the Southern Housing Group.
- whg (Walsall Housing Group), a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer housing association with 21,000 properties in the Midlands.
- East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which has 11,000 properties in East Yorkshire
- Stockport Homes, an Arm’s Length Management Organisation with 12,000 properties in Greater Manchester
Fieldwork, which will run until November 2023, is underway.
