This paper compares housing association (HA) gross rents, HA net rents, local authority (LA) rents, private sector rents and owner-occupation user costs to clarify the trends and relationships between housing expenditures across tenures. The comparison is carried out using the datasets for the years 2001/02 and 2006/07 at different spatial levels (i.e. national, regional and LA levels) and for different property types (i.e. bedspace, bedsits, one to six or more bedrooms and all sizes taken together).
