Detail

The findings of the English housing survey 2009 to 2010 headline report include:

  • a decrease in the number of owner-occupied households from a peak of 14.8 million in 2005 and 2006 to 14.5 million in 2009 to 2010; in contrast the number of households renting privately has risen by 1.3 million since 2001, from 2.1 million to 3.4 million in 2009 to 2010
  • in 2009 to 2010, social renters paid on average £75 per week in rent and private renters £153; around 62% of social renters received Housing Benefit compared to 24% of private renters
  • in 2009 to 2010, 1.8 million households had moved into their current home during the previous 12 months; this was 200,000 less than in 2008 to 2009, and 600,000 less than in 2007 to 2008; the reduction was almost all in the owner-occupied sector
  • the energy efficiency of the housing stock continued to improve, with the average SAP rating increasing from 42 to 53 between 1996 and 2009; the rented sectors - private and social - improved more than the owner-occupied sector
  • 6.7 million homes (30%) were non-decent in 2009, down from 7.4 million (33%) in 2008; overall, social-sector homes were in a better condition than private-sector homes with 23% being non-decent compared to 31%
  • around 1.8 million dwellings had damp problems in 2009 (no significant change from the previous year); privately rented dwellings were more likely to experience damp problems than dwellings in other tenures: 15% did so compared to 8% in the owner-occupied sector and 10% in the social sector
  • a third (33%) of households living in poverty were living in non-decent homes compared to 28% of those not living in poverty; damp was also more prevalent in the homes of poor households: 12% of poor households lived with damp problems compared with 7% of other households
