One third of private renters are now families with children


The number of families living in the private rented sector has risen rapidly, according to research published today by the Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF).

Who Lives in the Private Rented Sector? profiles the household characteristics and changing make-up of the private rented sector (PRS) and identifies the rapid growth of households with children.

As the PRS continues to grow, a better understanding of the households accommodated in the sector isvital if people’s housing needs are to be effectively met. The report gives a useful summary of the households in the private rented sector, thus providing organisations with analysis to help inform their development decisions.
