Housing Benefits History - Small Regional Towns

Recommended Posts

did housing benefits go up a lot in small regional towns, as their house prices rocketed since 2003, and yet in some places yields look OK now against rents, which you would think must be much higher than they were in 2003???

(edit: probably impacted by public sector largesse also)

Is it worth an FOI request to all our Councils? I'm happy to ask Kirklees.

living in inner city Leeds I don't live in the right place to check!

but good idea - I noticed Barrow in Furness - selling prices 2 bed terraces 50k, peak price 75k, rent 380pcm

they were 20k in 2002

my guess is there's a lot of benefits and public sector salaries, and also maybe voids are high (I have heard this for a lot of minor northern towns)
