Detail

The findings of the English housing survey 2010 to 2011 headline report include:

  • average weekly rents in the private-rented sector continued to be well above those in the social-rented sector (£160 per week compared to £79)
  • 63% of households in the social-rented sector were in receipt of Housing Benefit, compared with only 25% of those in the private-rented sector
  • the long-term upward trend in the proportion of households experiencing overcrowding in both rented sectors appeared to continue (7% for social renters and 6% for private renters in 2010 to 2011), but there was no appreciable change in the proportion of owner-occupiers living in overcrowded conditions (1% in 2010 to 2011)
  • the energy efficiency of the housing stock continued to improve, with the average SAP rating reaching 55 in 2010; the social sector continued to be more energy efficient on average than the private sector
  • the proportion of dwellings with damp problems reduced from 13% in 1996 to 7% in 2010; private-rented dwellings were more likely than those in other tenures to experience damp problems, partly as they are more likely to be older stock
