Out of the 119,000 new homes being built, 57,000 will be for ownership, and just 29,600 will be for social rent. その間, 6,250 are set to be rural affordable homes.

“This huge funding package will make the ambition of owning a home a reality for families by making it realistic and affordable.”
But some so-called “affordable homeownership” schemes have required prospective homeowners to have saved a deposit with a stable income to be considered for a mortgage.

The housing secretary added: “We are also ensuring tens of thousands of new homes for rent are built in the years ahead, including social rent, so those on the lowest incomes can enjoy good quality, 安全, rented homes, built and managed by reputable providers.”
Housing tenure is considered a large predictor of how a person votes, with renters typically supporting Labour and owners backing the Tories.
