Politicians and the popular press frequently identify the growth of private renting amongst young people to be one of the most important adverse consequences of the British ‘housing crisis’. Particular concern has been directed towards the rapid increase in private renting amongst young families unable to either afford homeownership or access social housing. This trend is thought to be problematic because high housing costs, limited tenure security and relatively poor dwelling quality mean that the private rental sector often does not cater well for young families seeking long-term accommodation. In this presentation I use data from the Office for National Statistics Longitudinal Study of England and Wales to chart young families’ changing use of the private rental sector between 2001 and 2011. In order to assess whether trends in the housing system are deepening social inequality I pay particular attention to the changing demographic and socio-economic profile of young private renters.
