This case study draws on research that aimed to provide greater understanding of the small-scale private rental market in South Africa. The original research study was undertaken by David Gardner.  Some learning and reflection activities based on the case study are provided. The next part of the document examines the potential of small-scale private rental to address housing backlogs in South Africa as well as factors that currently inhibit that delivery. The final component of this document includes a summary of the key points that were covered in the case study and recommendations arising from it.


This resource is part of a larger collection of case studies developed by Urban LandMark to translate research findings into learning materials.
