There is an utter lack of transparency surrounding corporate landlords: it's very difficult to find out how many homes they own, how much money is going into the housing markets in our cities and how much money investors make, and what are the effect corporate landlords are having on the housing crises affecting cities across Europe.

We believe that more collaborative research is needed to shed light on the topic of corporate landlords and other housing issues, and that our effort and the “Cities for Rent” investigation are a step in that direction.

If you are carrying out similar research or if you would like to know more about our investigation or to contribute to it, do get in touch with us: send an email to and we'll get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
