Housing: Leasehold

Volume 702: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What percentage of the total number of homes in private ownership is leasehold. [HL4023]

The Survey of English Housing for 2006 shows that there were 14.6 million (70 per cent) owner-occupying households, 3.7 million (18 per cent) social renters and 2.5 million (12 per cent) private renters. Of the 14.6 million owner-occupying households, 0.6 million (4 per cent) were leasehold houses and 1 million (7 per cent) were leasehold flats. The survey does not collect data in relation to whether rented houses and flats are leasehold or freehold.
