- Statistics & Research
An annual report which includes information on the number of dwellings demolished, houses in multiple occupation and the condition of residential properties.
- The number of dwellings demolished across Wales decreased for the second year in a row. During 2012-13, 118 dwellings were demolished, however demolitions still remain above the low recorded in 2008-09.
- During 2012-13, a fifth more dwellings were assessed by local authorities under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) than in the previous year. Of those that were assessed the percentage that contained at least one Category 1 hazard fell from 40 per cent in 2011-12 to 36 per cent in 2012-13.
- Over the last three years, of those dwellings assessed under HHSRS those occupied by a single household (non-HMOs) were more likely to contain at least one Category 1 hazard than dwellings occupied by multiple households (HMOs).
- The overall number of licensed HMOs across Wales has been steadily increasing since 2007-08 as local authorities have identified new mandatory HMOs and made increased use of additional licensing powers. However local authorities estimate that the total number of HMOs in 2012-13 has fallen for the second year in a row.
