Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research


The aim of this study was to expand upon research conducted for the Housing Corporation, Low Cost Home Ownership: Affordability, Risks and Issues, in early 2008.

The specific aims of this research were (i) to explore the nature of regional markets for LCHO offered by Housing Associations (HAs) since the downturn, and (ii) to clarify the impact of private developer shared equity schemes on HAs and the degree to which HAs are competing with these schemes.
