Private renting and housing for older people

3 March 2014


Private renting and housing for older people - two new Housing LIN viewpoints

Two new Housing LIN briefing papers go into extensive detail into why there isn't more high quality housing for older people to rent privately in mainstream or specialist accommodation. 
  • What are the barriers? 
  • What sort of private rented housing do older people want? 
  • Would more of it encourage downsizing? 

Launched at the recent Housing LIN's annual conference:

Briefing 1: Quality and choice for older people's housing: what can a new Private Rented Sector offer? explores whether the PRS could extend the choice of housing options for older people who prefer to live in all-age communities. It argues that market rent could extend the choice of housing options for older people in retirement and extra care housing, including those who may prefer to move from larger family housing. 

Briefing 2: Market rent in retirement and extra care housing: a new offer for older people looks specifically at market rent in specialist retirement and extra care housing.
