Housing in transition: Understanding the dynamics of tenure change
This short project explored patterns of tenure by household type, income group and region in England using data from the Survey of English Housing and English Housing Survey; it developed a forecast of how tenure trends might develop over the period to 2025. It built on existing work undertaken by Oxford Economics for the National Housing Federation.
Market Intelligence toolkit for Orbit Housing Group
This project involved tightly focused research to critically assess the market intelligence that Orbit needed to develop in support of effective decision making over future decades in terms of asset management, investment and potential expansion.
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).
Local authority CORE data imputation and weighting methodology study
This research, commissioned by Communities and Local Government, considered how to adjust for missing local authority data within the Continuous Recording of Lettings (LA CORE) system.
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.
Detailed analysis of the current pattern of RSL rents 2007-2009
As a baseline of reviewing the rent restructuring regime of 2000, this paper analyses the current pattern of key variables for registered social landlord (RSL) rents at detailed geographical levels. It also assessed current RSL rent patterns in terms of size effects and local effects.
Estimating rates of return on private sector rents
The original reason for this research was to assess the extent to which it would be appropriate to use lower quartile house prices as a surrogate for private rents in regional and local analysis in the light of the difficulties in obtaining Rent Officer Service data on the rents they determine for Housing Benefit purposes.
Target rents 2004-2011
This series of papers looked at rent restructuring and housing association movement towards target rents during the period 2004 to 2011.
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.
Private rented sector and buy to let mortgage market: five year outlook
OneSavings Bank plc (OSB) commissioned research from CCHPR into the private rented sector and buy to let market. This will helped develop a deeper understanding of the drivers of the market.
