Annual detailed report about the housing stock in England.
This report, formally known as the housing stock report, is the detailed report of findings relating to the housing stock from the English housing survey. It builds on results reported in the English housing survey headline report: 2010 to 2011 published in February 2012.
The English housing survey 2010 to 2011: household report was also published on 5 July 2012.
The report includes the following findings:
- in 2010, there were 22.4 million dwellings in England; 66% of these were owner occupied and the rest were rented, split fairly evenly between the private-rented sector (17%) and social-rented sector (17%); there were slightly more housing association dwellings (2 million) than local authority dwellings (1.8 million)
- 52% of the private-rented stock was built before 1945, including 40% built before 1919; also, 15% of private-rented homes were converted flats
- the total cost of dealing with basic disrepair (day-to-day maintenance) within the stock was around £31.8 billion at 2010 prices and the average cost of this type of disrepair was £1,418 per dwelling
- the proportion of dwellings with damp problems fell from 10% in 2001 to 7% in 2010; this was mainly due to a fall in the incidents of problems caused by penetrating damp
- the average energy efficiency (SAP) rating for the whole stock (using SAP09) has increased from 45 in 1996 to 55 in 2010
- the average SAP rating in the social sector in 2010 was around 8 points higher than either owner-occupied or private-rented homes (62 compared with 54)
