A matter of choice? RSL rents and home ownership: a comparison of costs: Sector Study 2

This Sector Study examines the gap between the weekly costs of home ownership and RSL rents over the last decade and how this varies across the country and the implications for RSLs when setting their rents.

In the past RSLs have tended to compare their rents with those in the private rented sector to ensure competitiveness. Yet in some parts of the country there is now little difference between the weekly costs of home ownership at the bottom end of the market and renting from RSLs. Given the preference for home ownership and the recent expansion in the sector, this has implications for RSLs who may find themselves facing problems in terms of marketing and maintaining balanced communities. This Sector Study examines the gap between the weekly costs of home ownership and RSL rents over the last decade and how this varies across the country and the implications for RSLs when setting their rents.
