46% Of Social Tenants Prefer To Stay In Sector

A greater proportion of tenants would rather still be in social housing in 10 years time than move into owner-occupation, a report has found. A poll, of a weighted sample of 1,998 adults carried out by Yougov, shows 46% of social housing tenants would ‘most like’ to still be living in social housing in 10 years time if “things go as well as they might expect”, compared to 39% who have aspirations to become owner-occupiers. The figures contrast with private renters, among whom a much larger proportion want to move into homeownership. The figures showed 80% of the public would most like to be in owner-occupation in 10 years time. Download the report from the CML website.
