Details

The Department for Communities and Local Government has developed a new methodology for estimating the number of residential dwellings in England that are privately owned, on long leasehold.

The new methodology provides an estimate of the number of dwellings in the owner occupied and the private rented sectors, where a long lease exists on the dwelling. The estimate does not include dwellings in the social rented sector, i.e. homes owned by a social landlord and rented out to social tenants.

A more detailed technical paper will be available on request from ehs@communities.gsi.gov.uk.
