Housing Research Fodder
Detailed report of the english Housing Survey. Some key findings include: Owner occupiers buying with a mortgage made average weekly mortgage payments of Â£143. This compared to average weekly rent payments of Â£160 made by privately renting households, and Â£79 by social renters. 59% of private renters and 23% of social renters said they expected to buy a home in the UK, at some point. Of these, 16% had considered applying for a mortgage in the last 12 months.
