- Statistics & Research
An annual report which includes information on the number of Social Housing sales in Wales and their impact on dwelling stock. It covers sales of local authority dwellings and sales of Registered Social Landlord (RSL) dwellings.
- Following a steady downward trend, social housing sales have increased over the last four years and during 2013-14 there were 3 per cent more sales than in 2012-13. However, this varied across landlord type, with local authority sales up by 72 per cent on the previous year, whilst the sale of RSL dwellings was down by 20 per cent.
- Between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2014, a total of 438 social rented and non social rented dwellings were transferred into the private sector through the sale of 179 local authority dwellings and 259 RSL dwellings, via Right to Buy, Right to Acquire and other schemes.
- During 2013-14 the majority of social housing sales continued to be sales of RSL dwellings which accounted for 59 per cent of all dwellings sold.
- Prior to 2009-10 the majority of all sales were statutory sales through the Right to Buy (RTB) and Right to Acquire (RTA) schemes, though this trend switched in recent years with more non-statutory sales. However during 2013-14 statutory sales accounted for 58 per cent of all sales whilst 42 per cent of all sales were non statutory voluntary and other sales.
