  • A revision has been made to some of the lettings figures for 31 March 2011 originally published on 30 August 2011. It was found that these figures were tabulated incorrectly. The figures affected are “Vacancies in LA stock for which nominations from other landlord's waiting lists invited”, “Lettings made as a result of nomination of an applicant on register to another landlord's stock” and “Total tenancy changes within the LA stock”. The published tables have now been revised and are available at the following link: lettings tables. None of these revised statistics are referenced outwith these tables and therefore the housing trends bulletin and other explanatory text remains unchanged.
