This report compares the residential mobility of social tenants and households entering LCHO in London with mobility in the northern regions of England.

The analyses concentrates on four aspects of household mobility: The mobility patterns of Housing Association (HA) tenants and of households entering Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO); The pattern of mobility between sub-regions within the regions; The attributes of HA tenants who moved and of households who entered LCHO; The attributes of households who obtained re-let (existing) properties as compared to those who were housed in new lettings (meaning properties newly acquired by the HA sector).
