John Mark McCafferty, Threshold chief executive, said it was clear tenants’ feelings of security in their accommodation had “deteriorated” in the last two years. Mr McCafferty said the crisis in the rental sector was being felt across all income ranges, family types and ages. Half of those surveyed said they had been in their current rental accommodation for less than two years. A fifth of tenants reported feeling their rental accommodation was overcrowded. The interviews for the survey were carried out between February and April 2022, among people who had previously sought help from Threshold about their rights as tenants.
