Abstract

Decades of chronic housing undersupply have meant that housing price growth has consistently outstripped income growth, driving up costs across tenures and meaning that households spend a growing share of their disposable incomes on their accommodation. New research by Laura Gardiner examines the UK households that are spending more than half of their disposable income on housing costs. Most of the ‘housing pinched’ are working and more than a quarter live in London.
