Mobility and moving aspirations of social housing tenants in London and the North

This study aims to assess evidence on the extent to which households in the social sector in London are prepared to move together with the attributes of households and dwellings that help to determine their attitudes and requirements.

The results show that mobility in the social sector in London is far less than in other sectors and is clearly less than those living in the rest of the country. The vast majority of moves are within the same districts. Their reasons for being offered a move are generally to do with their current housing conditions and relatively few involve significant choices in relation to location. However, those moving into low cost home ownership, although they are still more likely to move within the district, have a slightly greater choice of locality and tend if anything to move to lower cost areas.

This Sector Study focuses on the London region and sets out the currently available evidence on who intends and expects to move, where and why? It also goes on to look at mobility schemes and how well they are working to help people realise their aspirations.
