These papers compare the findings on RSL sector and the private rented sector to provide a clear picture of the extent to which rent and rate of return differentials vary by area, type, etc.
This paper examines how housing association (HA) rents relate to costs in other tenures in 2005/06 and 2001/02, the year before target rents were introduced. It compares HA rents, local authority rents, private sector rents and owner-occupation user costs at national, regional and LA levels and for different property types.
Comparing Rents and User Costs, 2005/06 and 2001/02 -
This paper compares housing association (HA) gross rents, HA net rents, local authority (LA) rents, private sector rents and owner-occupation user costs to clarify the trends and relationships between housing expenditures across tenures. The comparison is carried out using the datasets for the years 2001/02 and 2006/07 at different spatial levels (i.e. national, regional and LA levels) and for different property types (i.e. bedspace, bedsits, one to six or more bedrooms and all sizes taken together).
