- Statistics & Research
The data was previously collected on a quarterly basis and published alongside the New House Building data in a combined first release. Following consultation it was decided that from 2011-12 onwards the sales data would be collected annually and published in a separate annual release.
Further changes to the collection of information on social housing sales were proposed and consulted on during 2011-12. The changes proposed in this consultation will not be implemented until the 2013-14 data collection so will not, therefore, be reflected in this release.
- Following a steady downward trend, social housing sales increased over the last three years with 3 per cent more sales in 2012-13 than in 2011-12. However, this varied across landlord type, with local authority sales up by 24 per cent on the previous year, whilst the sale of registered social landlords (RSL) dwellings was down by 2 per cent.
- Between 1 April 2012 and 31 March 2013, a total of 426 socially rented dwellings were transferred into the private sector through the sale of 104 local authority dwellings and 322 RSL dwellings, via Right to Buy and other schemes.
- During 2012-13 the majority of social housing sales continued to be sales of RSL dwellings which accounted for 76 per cent of all dwellings sold.
