The Survey, based on 14,000 tenants, found that over two thirds of tenants said affordability (68%) and a garden (67%) had become more important than they were pre-lockdown.

With the government encouraging working from home, it is no surprise that 63% of tenants said broadband speed was more important and 61% said space to work from home was more important.
