Housing and Inequality

The UK is a much more unequal society than it was 30 years ago. Overthe same period, housing tenure has also been transformed, with a much larger proportion owning their own home and having access to the assets resulting from soaring property values. But where does this leave the one third of society who struggle to maintain their living standards? Many are living in social rented housing, but many too are in the private rented sector, and even owner-occupation has its share of poor households. The links between housing and social inequality are complex and this book aims to untangle them for the reader.
