Cross Tenure Costs Comparison

Affordable Rents assessment for Cambridge City
This research was undertaken in order to provide an assessment of affordability of housing association and local authority rents when pegged at given ratios of prevailing market rents within Cambridge City and the housing sub-market.
Market-pegged rents in the social sector
This project examined the affordability of rents set as percentages of open-market prices, as proposed in the HCA's Affordable Rents Framework. The project reviewed the literature on affordability, and looked at data on recent trends in new lettings in the social sector.
Comparison of stock, rents and service charges among different types of social landlords
This project 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 (ALMOs).
Affordability in the housing association sector
This project looks at the affordability in the housing associating (HA) sector. It also compares the position of HA tenants with those in the private rented and owner-occupier sector.
Assessing the impact on annual public spending of higher density housing in London
This project was commissioned by East Thames Housing Group to investigate the relationship between: increasing housing densities, dwelling mix and built form, and the incidence of service charges; the affordability of service charges to tenants and LCHO purchasers; whether particular service charges are associated with changes in built form and whether these can be linked to predictable ‘break points’ in housing density, to produce a ‘typology’ or archetypes for planning and financial feasibility purposes.
Comparative analysis of private and social sectors’ rates of return 2007-2009
These papers compare the findings on RSL sector and the private rented sector to provide a clear picture of the extent to which rent and rate of return differentials vary by area, type, etc.
Estimating rates of return on social sector rents
This paper analyses the relationship between social sector rents and house prices in order to examine the viability of the sector. Rents are the only form of return available to the social sector landlord (unlike in the private sector where capital gains are relevant).
Estimating rates of return on private sector rents: 1996/97 to 2005/06
This paper analyses the relationship between private sector rents and house prices in order to examine the viability of the sector in that rents are the only form of return available to the private sector landlord.
Comparing the costs of owner occupation with RSL rents: A geographical analysis
This study examines changes in house prices, RSL rents and the comparative costs of low cost home ownership and RSL renting over the decade 1989/90 to 1998/99.
Guide to local rents 2001-2010
Producing a guide to local rents was a Dataspring project funded by the Tenant Services Authority, for which outputs were published from 2001 until 2010. Parts I, II and III together provided the data to undertake comparisons of rents geographically for all three rented sectors (local authority, housing association and private rented), between individual housing associations and between individual local authorities.
