Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the impact of the RTB policy in terms of the numbers and types of properties that were sold. It then considers if the RTB caused the residualisation of social housing, or if a more complex situation existed where several policies came. The chapter looks at the effect the RTB had on other tenures and what has happened with the RTB over its 30 years. The discussion also determines how the RTB should be viewed in terms of other policies and why it has declined. Some of the key data on the impact of the RTB are studied carefully in this chapter.

Keywords: RTB policy; sold properties; social housing; residualisation
