Useful facts

The most recent comprehensive study of homes in Camden, in 2004, found that one in three did not meet the decent homes standard. Many homes were built before 1945, and therefore have poor insulation.

In September 2013 the London Borough of Camden launched their 'Camden Plan' which is a five-year vision for the borough to improve standards and affordability in the private rented sector. (Download a copy of the plan below)
