One fifth of private renters are families

Across the UK, families comprise a fifth (21%) of all privately renting homes with 39% occupied by single people and 40% by sharers or couples. Using Dataloft Rental Market Analytics data, we have reviewed the household make-up of renters beginning new tenancies since the start of 2020. Regional analysis highlights the larger concentrations of families in the private rented sector in the South East and East of England compared to London, Yorkshire and the Humber and the South West. Sharers and couples comprise over 40% of renting households in the South while singles are the dominant household type outside of London, the South East and East of the country.
