Kwik Sale Houses

With renting fast becoming the social norm for many, the number of private tenants has exceeded the number of social tenants for the first time since the 1960s.

The English Housing Survey for 2011-12 shows that the rising number of private tenants, 3.84 million, outnumbered the 3.8 million in social housing.

This increase reflects growing demand for rental homes from a rising population and those unable to buy a property for themselves. However, it also reflects the growing trend for flexible living. Renting allows people to relocate and up-size or down-size easily. This combined with the fact that the quality of the rental homes on offer has improved dramatically over recent years makes becoming a tenant a very attractive option and is often preferred to home ownership.
