Shelter response to government’s English Housing Survey - Shelter Media England

Headline figures released today from the government’s English Housing Survey, show:

4.5 million households now rent privately – the equivalent of 11.2 million people. This has increased by 52% (1,547,980 households) in the last decade.


The number of families renting privately has reached 1,570,141 – this has more than doubled since 2007-08 and now represents a quarter of all families.


There has also been a significant 74% rise in the number of older private renters (aged 55+) in the past decade, from 425,695 in 2007-08, to 742,067 in 2017-18.


In addition to the rise in the overall number of private renters, there are more than twice as many households living in overcrowded conditions in the private rented sector compared to ten years ago.
