Housing Outlook

The UK’s housing market is not delivering for low-to-middle income families. Families are spending more of their income on housing and getting less for their money; fewer families are enjoying the security of home ownership or a social rented tenancy, with millions more living in the insecure private rented sector; and house prices have surged relative to incomes.

Our work focuses on understanding the causes and impact of these developments, and on the appropriate policy responses. In our quarterly Housing Outlook, we spotlight some of the key issues affecting housing in the UK today, from the impact of higher inflation on social renters’ housing costs, to what climate change means for England’s housing stock and for the families living in these homes.

In each Housing Outlook, we also track key indicators relating to market trends, housing’s impact on living standards, and housing policy developments. These can be explored in our interactive charts, available below, and updated each quarter along with the publication of the Housing Outlook.
