According to analysis by Ocasa, there were almost 27.5m dwellings in the UK property market 10 years ago, with almost 9.4m rental properties accounting for 34.2% of all dwellings.
Recent figures reveal that there are now over 29.5m dwellings across the UK market, a 7.5% increase versus 10 years ago.
But the number of rental properties is now over 10.5m, meaning that this area of the market has not only seen a larger rate of growth at 12.2%, but it now accounts for 35.7% of total UK dwellings.
The figures, which reflect increasing expensive home pricing young buyers out of the market in many countries, includes private and social rentals
