Abstract

Generation rent is on the rise in London. According to the English Housing Survey, over a million households rented privately in the capital last year, and the proportion of London households in the private rented sector (PRS) has grown from around 14% in 2003-2004 to almost a third 10 years later. By historic standards, this may not actually be that large[1], but the share of renters is projected to grow (Theseira 2013). Because of this, any discussion about London’s housing supply crisis must include a consideration of how to increase the supply and improve the conditions of private rented accommodation.
