    English Housing Survey reveals important role landlords play in housing the nation!

    The private rented sector supplies 19% of all homes in England – ahead of the social sector at 17%.

    The figures are in the latest English Housing Survey, published yesterday by the Department for Communities and Local Government and covering the year 2013.

    Back in 1996, just 10% of housing stock was privately rented, according to the report.

    In comparison, the number of local authority dwellings fell from 3.5m in 1996 to 1.7m in 2013.

    The report says that between 1996 and 2013, the total number of homes in England increased from 20.3m to 23.3m.

    Much of this, it says, was due to the huge growth in private rented housing which more than doubled in size from 2m to 4.5m.

    Over the same period, the number of socially rented homes – local authority dwellings as well as housing association properties – decreased from 4.4m in 1996 to 4m in 2013.

    The report says the total number of homes went up by 3 million between 1996 and 2013. This equates to just over 175,000 per year. We've been told time and again that we need to build 200,000 new homes a year and that we have only been building a fraction of this. So given that 175,000 is not far off the 200,000 target, I think there might be some errors in this report.
