Private Sector House Condition Survey

In 2014 Winchester City Council commissioned David Adamson & Partners Ltd to complete a review of housing and household conditions across the private housing sector. The study involved a comprehensive survey programme across a sample of 800 dwellings representing 1.9% of all private dwellings in Winchester. Survey investigation included physical housing conditions (HHSRS and Decent Homes), energy efficiency (RdSAP) and the circumstances and attitudes of occupying households. The survey results provide an up-to-date benchmark for private sector housing locally against national housing conditions.
