Why older people need more market rent housing: new opportunities for older people, local authorities, developers, investors and providers


In the four years since our PRS briefings 1 & 2, the market rent for older people has changed following new developments in both mainstream and later life housing for older people.

Indeed, latest statistics in the English Housing Survey published last month reveals that that there has been an increase in older people renting.

This new briefing (no 3) argues that we need more market rent housing for older people, in addition to other tenure options. It is set out into four parts that all develop ideas from previous Housing LIN briefings, with support from more recent reports, insight and intelligence from Housing LIN members and case-study examples.
