Rented housing

Rented housing is a substitute for owner-occupation. Rented housing is available from private sector landlords and also from the social sector including council housing provided by local authorities and sheltered housing supplied by organisations such as housing associations. The fast growth of average property prices in the UK has contributed to a fall in housing affordability and a subsequent increase in the number of people and households who rely on rented housing.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of households in the private rented sector in the UK increased from 2.8 million in 2007 to 4.5 million in 2017, an increase of 1.7 million (63%) households.
