From buy-to-let to let-to-buy, Michael Robinson asks why landlords are increasingly dominant in the UK housing market.

In this programme, Michael Robinson gets to the bottom of the UK rental market.

He meets the buy-to-letters who've bought up council homes to rent out as private landlords - not to be confused with the let-to-buyers who are renting out their old home so they can buy a new one for themselves. He discovers the impact of changes to the housing benefit system and asks whether the current relationship between tenants and landlords is just a way of transferring wealth from young people to their baby boomer parents.
