Data Analysis for Second Evaluation of Private Rented Sector Licensing Scheme within Newham
This project assesses the impact of the compulsory landlord Licencing Scheme which has been operating in Newham since 2013. Drawing on the four-wave panel data of a tenants’ survey, configured by Newham Council the data allows analysis on a range of spheres of tenants’ welfare, local environments and property management, addressing statistical bias and allowing consideration of the sustainability of any impacts over a longer term.
Designing compliance into regulatory codes
For this project Dr Paul Sanderson (supported by Daniel Banks and Prof. Simon Deakin) worked alongside BRDO staff in their offices, contributing from previous research knowledge on optimising compliance to (i) the design of regulatory codes, and (ii) communications about regulatory codes, affect approaches to compliance.
The effects of rent controls on supply and markets
This project, commissioned by Shelter, explored the possible effects of different rent control scenarios on the operation of the Private Rented Sector in England. Six different rent control options were considered, proposing different limits to rents and changes to security of tenure.
Research into potential solutions for business data sharing between regulators
This project for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills draws on existing knowledge of regulation and regulatory data within the CCHPR to examine the potential for greater sharing of regulatory data between regulators. The aim was to increase regulatory efficiency and reduce the burden of regulation on business.
The citizen in regulation
This project for the Local Better Regulation Office is essentially a review of the existing policy, practice and academic literature relating to the citizen in regulation, encompassing citizen involvement and participation, co-regulation and co-production. The intention is to highlight potentially fruitful areas for further exploration by the LBRO.
Comparison of stock, rents and service charges among different types of social landlords
This project draws comparisons of stock, rents and service charges between four different types of social landlord; Traditional mixed funded Registered Social Landlords (RSLs); RSLs who have taken over local authority stock via Large Scale Voluntary Transfer; Local authorities (retention LAs); and Arms Length Management Organisations (ALMOs).
Housing association service charges for general needs housing
This project examined how service charges applied to general needs stock by housing associations varied between different property types and sizes, and between types of association.
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.
Housing association sector trends
The housing association sector trends project brought together 15 years of data from the Regulatory and Statistical Return, the annual census of housing associations registered with the Tenants Services Authority to form a cohesive relational database. This gives added value to the data as it can be used for time series analysis to determine trends in the housing association sector and relate these to changes in policy, finance and regulation. Such data is also useful for scenario planning for future directions.
Target rents 2004-2011
This series of papers looked at rent restructuring and housing association movement towards target rents during the period 2004 to 2011.
Housing association service charges and their relationship to rents
This project examined housing association service charges and their relationship to rents. Understanding the relationship between rents and service charges is important for all stakeholders in the housing association sector. Tenants need to budget for their housing costs by understanding what elements of those costs relate to rent and service charges and which elements of these costs can be met from housing benefit payments.
2001 Census briefing paper series
Three reports published during 2003 and 2004 using data from the 2001 Census and Regulatory Statistical Returns.
Housing association stock managed pending transfer into ownership
This report used Regulatory and Statistical Return (RSR) data for 2002 to provide some base data on the number of housing associations and units involved in this type of stock management. It broke data down between types and sizes of association to examine which associations were most involved in this type of stock management.
Adapt and survive: Housing associations' response to changes in housing policy at the beginning of the new century
Using data from the Regulatory Statistical Return (RSR) and on the profile of new tenants from CORE, this paper examines recent changes in the Housing Association sector and interprets these in the light of changing emphases in government housing policy.
Dataspring
From the late 1990s until 2011 CCHPR ran Dataspring, a large dedicated research and consultancy unit specialising in UK social housing data, particularly stock and rents data. The unit has since been absorbed into the mainstream activity of the Centre.
Registered social landlords and changes in rent
This was the third annual analysis of registered social landlords' performance in limiting rent increases. It was also the first in the series of Sector Studies (Research and Good Practice).
Guide to local rents 2001-2010
Producing a guide to local rents was a Dataspring project funded by the Tenant Services Authority, for which outputs were published from 2001 until 2010. Parts I, II and III together provided the data to undertake comparisons of rents geographically for all three rented sectors (local authority, housing association and private rented), between individual housing associations and between individual local authorities.
