Detailed analysis of the current pattern of RSL rents 2007-2009

As a baseline of reviewing the rent restructuring regime of 2000, this paper analyses the current pattern of key variables for registered social landlord (RSL) rents at detailed geographical levels. It also assessed current RSL rent patterns in terms of size effects and local effects.

In 2000 the rent restructuring regime was firstly set out in the Housing Green Paper (DETR) with the objectives of bringing greater coherence to rent structures across the whole social sector and relating rents more closely to fundamentals. As a baseline of reviewing the regime, this paper will analyse the current pattern of key variables for registered social landlord (RSL) rents at detailed geographical levels.

This paper also investigates RSL rent patterns in the context of target rents, which were introduced by the government in April 2002 as part of a rent restructuring framework. The framework required Housing Associations to adjust their existing rents to target rents based on a formula taking account of local income, property size, and property value. This suggests that the current RSL rent patterns should be reviewed by at least two measurements- by size effects and local effects, because, needless to say, property size has size effects and local income and property value are dependant on local economic fundamentals.

Annual Analysis of the current pattern of Registered Social Landlord rents 2007/08

The report examines the RSL rent patterns over the period from 2001/02 to 2007/08. It also looks at changes in rents over the same period at different spatial levels; rents by property size; and finally the rent relativities between neighbouring local authorities.

Analysis of distribution and rents of properties with five or more bedrooms, 2006/07

This paper explores the extent to which housing associations (HAs) are providing dwellings for large family households who require four bedrooms or more, and the extent to which there is a shortfall in such provision. It examines the available stock of larger units; the ownership structure of these units; their spatial distribution; and the rents charged for these properties. The paper concentrates on five bedroom and six plus bedroom units in 2006/07.
