This paper draws comparisons of stock, rents and service charges between four different types of social landlord; Traditional mixed funded Registered Social LandLords (RSLs); RSLs who have taken over local authority stock via Large Scale Voluntary Transfer; Local authorities (retention LAs); and Arms Length Management Organisations (ALMO).

As a baseline study, this paper aims to clarify the quality and availability of relevant data and then draw basic comparisons of the latest net rents and service charges between these four types of social landlords to investigate whether or not substantial differences among them are observable and to what extent coherence has developed.
