- 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.
- The overall number of social housing sales has increased over the last five years, though numbers remain well below the levels seen in the years prior to 2008-09.
- There were 24 per cent more sales of social dwellings (social rented and non-social rented), during 2014-15, than in 2013-14. This varied by landlord type, with sales of registered social landlord (RSL) dwellings up by 35 per cent (to 319 dwellings) and local authority sales up by 9 per cent (to 195 dwellings).
- Over the last two years, the majority of all social housing sales have been statutory sales (via Right to Buy and Right to Acquire schemes), accounting for 53 per cent of all sales in 2014-15. This varied by landlord type, with statutory sales accounting for 90 per cent of all local authority sales, but only 32 per cent of all RSL sales.
- Since 2008-09, the majority of all social housing sales have been by RSLs. During 2014-15, RSL sales accounted for almost two thirds (64 per cent) of all social housing sales.
