Abstract

This research examined the characteristics of non-pensioner households on the margins of renting or owning their home, and determined those which influence the choice of tenure that is sustainable.

In addition, it provides estimates of the number of current and prospective local authority or housing association tenants that might move to owner occupation or shared ownership. Similarly, it provides estimates of the possible numbers of owner occupiers that might have to switch to renting because owner occupation is unsustainable in the medium term. Finally, it explores how assistance of various kinds, or counselling or advice, might maximise the numbers that could sustain home ownership.
