To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their estimate of the number of long-term rental units in London that have changed to become short term or holiday lets in the last five years; and how they plan to encourage private landlords to provide more housing for people seeking long term accommodation.

As part of the Autumn Budget statement, it was announced that the Government will consult on ways to overcome the barriers landlords can face in offering longer, more secure tenancies to those tenants who want them. We do not have an estimate of those long-term rental units in London that have changed to or are additionally used for short term or holiday lets in the last five years.
