A further 82% of respondents said they consider the property they rent to be their home.

In terms of the tenancy that is offered to renters, 57% stated they were happy with the conditions given to them and 17% have asked for a longer term, which the landlord had agreed to.

However, the research also revealed that 12% of tenants felt uncomfortable about approaching their landlord with regards to extending their tenancy agreement.

6% of tenants also revealed that their request to have a tenancy extended was refused.

“Landlords are willing to be more flexible than people expect when it comes to tenancy agreements, with them understanding that some tenant’s want a longer term tenancy,” said a spokesperson for Discount Insurance, Property 118’s insurance partner.

“Longer term tenancies are beneficial for landlords if they have reliable and good tenants who pay their rent on time,” added the spokesperson.

Shut the front door and keep it quiet, councils need to charge for licenses because most tenant have BAD landlord, and are not happy with where they live. Take off their handcuffs and let them move.

81% are happy so why not license the 19%,
