Housing Rents & Service Charges Statistics at April 2005

posted 14th March 2006
The Guide to Social Rent Reforms provides a full explanation of the central formula around which ministers wish social rents to be set in the future, and some worked examples to clarify how it can be used to calculate rents. This ‘rent restructuring’ can be defined as the process by which the actual rent for each property moves from its current level to its target level, derived from the central formula. The property's target rent (also called ‘formula rent’) will go up in line with the national average increase in rent guidelines in the local authority sector. One of the objectives of rent restructuring is to move all social housing rents in local authorities and Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) to a common system.

Homelessness Statistics 2004-05 Actuals

posted 6th March 2006
This CIPFA survey is intended to identify all costs incurred in the operation of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977 as incorporated into the 1985 and 1996 Housing Acts. The costs included are hostel or lodging house costs falling on the HRA and all other costs falling outside the HRA. It was not thought practicable to identify costs of HRA houses, flats, etc., used either permanently or temporarily to house the homeless, and these are specifically excluded from the survey.

Over the years, the total number of homeless people in temporary accommodation, as defined by the 1985 and 1996 Housing Acts, has increased substantially. The number of homeless households now stands at more than 100,000. This is due, in part, to a widening of the definition of those households accepted as being 'eligible, unintentionally homeless, and in priority need', but is also due to social and economic factors.
