Housing Associations and the movement to target rents, 2006 to 2007
Each year TSA published data in the form of a Rent factfile, a paper that compared actual net rents to target rents as at 31 March of two consecutive years. The Rent factfile was produced on behalf of TSA by Dataspring. This paper compares 31 March 2006 and 31 March 2007 and examines the extent to which actual rents have moved towards target rents. It also describes the annual change in gross rents for the period 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2007.
It all adds up: Changes in the provision of housing association stock 1989 to 2005
This study investigates the role of housing associations in the development and maintenance of social housing stock by charting the changes in stock levels from 1989 to 2005, including the impact of properties transferring from council ownership and the knock-on effect of transfers on the rise of availability of social housing.
Low Cost Home Ownership Affordability Study
This report was commissioned by Tower Homes and Metropolitan Home Ownership, two of the largest providers of Low Cost Home Ownership in the London area. It involved a survey of clients who purchased on a shared ownership basis over the past twelve months and a second survey of those who became shared owners between three and four years ago. The research looked at the longer-term affordability and sustainability of Low Cost Home Ownership. Affordability is explored both objectively by considering monthly outgoings incurred related to income, and subjectively as revealed in the surveys and interviews with clients.

The Demand for Social Rented Housing – A Review of Data Sources and Supporting Case Study Material
This is the technical report for the (then) ODPM which is now being published to coincide with the publication of the Summary by DCLG and the launch of the John Hills report An Assessment of the Aims of Social Housing.
The Extent and Impacts of Rural Housing Need, Report
Final report of major research project commissioned by Defra in 2004. The main findings were available in time to feed into the Affordable Rural Housing Commission’s report last year but publication was delayed until the Strategic Housing Market Assessments Practice Guidance was published by CLG in February 2007.
The Provision of Affordable Housing Through Section 106: the situation in 2007. RICS Research Paper Series Vol 7 No 14
This project explored how Section 106 is working on the ground to deliver affordable housing against an uncertain policy background. The study found that local authority policy and practice vary across the country. Whilst increasing numbers of affordable units have been provided through S106, there is still room for improvement.
The role of housing associations in the intermediate market, Report
The study covers the types of HA involved in supplying low cost home ownership products, trends in levels of output, and the mix of provision between types of low cost home ownership among regions. It concludes that as the gap between social rents and housing costs in other tenures increases across all regions the need for this type of provision is also increasing.
Use of the Existing Housing Stock in the South East, Report
This report was commissioned by the South East England Regional Assembly. It analyses the ways in which the existing housing stock is used presently and how this might change over the next twenty years.
