Event description

Description

The private rented sector is experiencing unprecedented growth in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK.

The sector remains massively controversial and faces many problems and challenges as well as key opportunities for potential benefit to households and the economy.

The seminar will begin with a presentation from Prof Ken Gibb on the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence's future work plans in relation to the private rented sector. This will be followed by three presentations which explore recent research on the rise of poverty in private renting and 'generation rent', before opening up to a roundtable discussion.
