Tenure harmonised standard

This harmonised standard is under development.

A recent review of the tenure harmonised standard identified a number of areas in which this standard may benefit from updating to most effectively meet the needs of stakeholders. Over the next few months, the Harmonisation Team will consult with stakeholders on whether and how to update the standard. As part of this, we are keen to hear from housing data users and producers – if that’s you, please get in touch (email gsshelp@statistics.gov.uk). Please also get in touch if you have any questions about this work, or if you require advice on survey questions to use on this topic.
