Landlord Engagement

Consultation has concluded

Who is a Landlord?

Anyone who receives payments to have individuals live at a property they own or manage in
St. John’s. These payments may come from any source (i.e. individuals, AES, Eastern Health, NLHC, etc.) and can be for various types of accommodations (i.e. Bedsitting rooms, personal care/community care homes, individuals with basement apartments, emergency shelters, etc.).

Does this sound like you? If yes, we need your help and input!

We would like to learn more about St. John’s landlords in order to make our community stronger. This survey should only take 5-10 minutes and one lucky landlord who completes the survey and signs up for our electronic newsletter will be entered to win a $500 gift card from the home improvement store of their choice (you MUST be a landlord as defined above to be eligible to win the gift card prize)!

What is the Issue? In the middle of a shortage of safe, affordable rental units, it is necessary to engage local landlords in the promotion of successful tenancies which benefit people who need rental housing as well as those who provide this important service. The City of St. John’s is coordinating this survey in collaboration with the Rental Team (of the Affordable Housing Working Group) to promote dialogue and engage landlords on this issue. Working with our partners to create and maintain affordable rental homes is one of the priority areas in the City’s Affordable Housing Business Plan. We aim to gather further input and ideas from this anonymous survey to assist us in developing a community-wide landlord engagement strategy.

This survey closed on October 17, 2016.

Your time is valuable so we would like to say thank you for taking a few minutes to share your ideas about what it is like to be a landlord in St. John’s.
