Shared ownership: Ugly Sister or Cinderella? The role of mortgage lenders in growing the shared ownership market
Shared ownership has been in operation for over 35 years and forms an established part of the UK housing landscape. It makes up a substantial and increasing proportion of new-build Affordable Housing, and is now set to be further expanded. The aim of the study was to improve mortgage lenders’ understanding of shared ownership and to help firms evaluate their appetite to support shared ownership in the light of the government’s aspirations for the tenure. The report makes recommendations for government, regulators, lenders and other stakeholders.

It presents findings from an online survey of young people which found that rates of sofa surfing and rough sleeping among young people were much higher than previously thought. Twenty-six percent of young people (aged 16–25) had slept rough at some point in their life and 35 percent had ‘sofa surfed’ (stayed with friends or family on their floor or sofa because they had nowhere else to go).

The Benefit Cap was brought in over the summer of 2013 and limits working age benefits for out of work households to £500 a week for families and couples, and £350 for single person households. This report highlights the key findings from work in ten case study local authorities, including: interviews with local authority staff, local agencies and Housing Associations; a nationwide survey of social landlords; and consultation with major lenders to the Housing Association sector. It provides information on how local agencies have been affected by the Benefit Cap and how they are working with capped claimants.

Reselling shared ownership properties after improvements
This short report, commissioned by Thames Valley Housing Association explores the process of reselling shared ownership properties in situations where owners have made improvements, increasing the value of their home. It explores the relative merits of different systems in use for valuing the improvements and attempting to ensure that the owner benefits financially for any uplift in value they have created.
The role of the private rented sector in preventing homelessness: Identifying good practice and the impact of policy change
The report is in three main parts: identifying good practice; implications of welfare reform; and strategies, solutions and models. The report concludes that while there are clearly many challenges facing private rented sector access schemes in the coming months and years, there are also many examples of good practice in addressing them. Overall, while there is no single solution that works in all housing markets, PRS access schemes are piloting a range of approaches and responding well to the challenges posed by welfare reform. The situation in London is more difficult, but nevertheless schemes were optimistic. PRS access schemes have grown over the last ten years and seem likely to continue to do so, despite the challenges posed by welfare reforms.
