House of Lords committee to examine UK Housing MarketMake Text Bigger
Written submissions are invited by the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee for its ‘Economics of the United Kingdom housing market inquiry’
Scope of the inquiry
The Committee is to investigate the economics of the UK housing market. Buying a house is becoming increasingly unaffordable for first time buyers. The cost of private rented accommodation is rising and there is a lack of affordable social housing. This Inquiry will consider the economic factors that influence the demand for and availability of reasonably priced housing to buy and to rent. This is a complex topic and the inquiry will particularly focus on the effectiveness of government economic measures designed to improve housing affordability.
