Abstract

In 2011 some 26.5% of London dwellings were rented (vs 16.7% in the rest of England) —a near-doubling from 12.7% in 1991. The main drivers of this shift to private renting include London’s population growth (both natural and through migration), its age profile (the capital has higher proportions of young people and students than the rest of the country), and the fact that would-be first-time buyers face increasing house prices and tightened mortgage conditions.
