A household is a person or group of people usually resident at the same address, provided that they share cooking facilities and a living or dining area.
- Owners may own their home outright or with a mortgage/loan.
- Private renters either rent from a landlord/agency or another party; ‘other private rented’ refers to arrangements such as renting from an employer.
- Social renters may rent from the local authority or from another social housing provider (typically a housing association).
- Living rent free refers to households living in property owned by another party without paying rent.
- Shared ownership is a type of housing tenure where the household part-owns the property and pays rent on the rest.
