Detail

This is the detailed report of findings relating to the housing stock from the English housing survey, and builds on results reported in the ‘English housing survey 2009 to 2010: headline report’ published in February 2011.

The ‘English housing survey 2009 to 2010: household report’ was also published on 5 July 2011.

The report includes the following findings:

  • 8.8 million (38%) of the 22.3 million dwellings in England in 2009 were built before 1945; 4.8 million (21%) before 1919
  • the energy efficiency (SAP) rating of the housing stock steadily improved from a mean of 42 SAP points in 1996 to 53 in 2009; improvement was particularly marked in local authority and private-rented housing
  • however in 2009 there were still 3.3 million dwellings in the lowest energy efficiency rating bands F and G
  • if cost-effective energy improvements (averaging around £1,400 per dwelling) were carried out to all 19.3 million dwellings that would benefit from them, the average SAP rating would increase from 53 to 63 and the average CO2 emissions per dwelling could be reduced from 6.0 to 4.6 tonnes per year
  • there has only been a modest improvement in the proportion of the stock with problems of damp (from 10% to 8%), primarily because the incidence of serious condensation and mould (one cause of damp) has not changed from 4% of all dwellings
  • electrical safety has improved significantly since 2001, especially for rented dwellings in both the private and social sectors
  • there has been a significant reduction in the amount of disrepair since 2001, particularly in private-rented housing although this sector still had on average much higher average repair costs than other tenures in 2009
