The impact of the large scale voluntary transfer of local authority housing stock on the housing association sector

This Sector Study examines the growth and spread of Large Scale Voluntary Transfer (LSVT) associations, their effect on the housing association stock profile at district level, the changes in vacancy rates associated with the transfer of stock needing renovation and the difference in tenant profiles of LSVT and non-LSVT associations.

There is a trend for an increasing volume of local authority housing stock to be involved in large-scale stock transfer (LSVT) each year. Although initially favoured by districts with sound stock and low levels of housing debt, policy changes have now encouraged more metropolitan areas to make partial transfers of their poorer stock.
