A recent IPSOS Mori survey for the Chartered Institute of Housing has shown the public don’t think their politicians are working hard enough to solve the housing crisis.
Renters are particularly concerned with the survey showing:
– 44% (45% of private renters and 43% of social renters) are either very or fairly concerned about their ability to pay rent at present (29% of mortgage holders are concerned about repayment).
– 52% report being very or fairly concerned about the impact of housing costs on their mental health (‘stress levels, worries or anxiety’); 57% of private renters and 46% of social renters.
– 38% think they might have to leave their local area in the future because the cost of housing is too high.
– 61% of renters or those living at home with their parents think they will never be able to afford to buy a home.
Most people, 57%, think that the rising cost of housing will impact on them personally in the next five years, with 56% saying the same of ‘Brexit’. Among renters as a group, 72% expect housing costs to impact on them personally with 51% thinking the same of ‘Brexit’.
Other findings highlight public backing for increases to housing supply with 52% support the building of new homes locally, twice the proportion who oppose this (21%), and up from 40% five years ago.
