Rent First provides an intermediate rent solution designed for people unable to access home ownership but who can afford more than a social rent, at least in the short term.
This is the latest release
It was established as a new capital grant funded housing product by Welsh Government in 2011.
With four years experience of the initiative, Welsh Government has commissioned this study to provide an evaluation of Rent First and to review more widely the intermediate rent market in Wales and the use or otherwise of other intermediate rent products.
Online surveys and semi-structured interviews in 8 case study areas gathered Local Authorities and Housing Associations’ views on Rent First.
Data was also drawn from a variety of administrative sources to provide understanding on the intermediate rent market in Wales.
