This paper was commissioned to inform the work of the JRF Housing Market Taskforce, a two-year programme of work aiming to achieve long-term stability in the housing market for vulnerable households. The overall aims of the review are to: • highlight the key socio-legal characteristics or attributes of housing tenures in the UK, providing an understanding the differing balance of rights and risks between consumers, the state and lenders or landlords across all tenures; • appreciate the extent to which these characteristics or attributes are intrinsic to the tenure itself or dependent on the context in which they are operating (e.g. legal, political, social, economic, environmental, financial); and • outline options for tenure reform that are relevant to the JRF Housing Market Taskforce’s aims, including an assessment of their likely impact on vulnerable groups and housing market volatility.
