TENURE
 Private sector . This includes dwellings owned by private landlords, whether persons or companies, and owner-occupiers.
 Housing associations . These are societies, bodies of trustees, or companies established for the purpose of providing housing
 accommodation on a non-profit making basis. They also provide housing for special groups such as the aged, disabled, single
 persons, or housing on a mutual or self-build basis. In recent years, associations have extended their activities into provision of
 low cost housing for home ownership. In addition, registered associations (those registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator
 (formerly Scottish Homes / Communities Scotland)) are heavily engaged in the regeneration of inner city areas through both
 rehabilitation and new building. Non-registered associations are, in the main, now operating on a management basis only.
 New Towns . In Scotland, New Town Development Corporations were established under the New Towns Acts for the purpose of
 laying out and developing New Towns. The New Towns in each region, with their designation and wind-up dates, are as follows:
 - Cumbernauld, Strathclyde Region (est. December 1955): Wound-up 31 December 1996. 1,275 houses were transferred to
 North Lanarkshire Council and 2,200 houses were transferred to Scottish Homes on 30 September 1996.
 - East Kilbride, Strathclyde Region (est. May 1947): Wound-up 31 December 1995. 7,834 houses were transferred to East
 Kilbride District Council (now South Lanarkshire Council) at the end of November 1995.
 - Glenrothes, Fife Region (est. June 1948): Wound-up 31 December 1995. 4,783 houses and 2,700 garages were transferred to
 Kirkcaldy District Council (now Fife Council) on 28 September 1995.
 - Irvine, Strathclyde Region (est. November 1966): Wound-up 31 December 1996. 1,978 houses were transferred to North
 Ayrshire Council and 715 houses were transferred to Irvine Housing Association on 29 November 1996.
  -Livingston, Lothian Region (est. April 1962): Wound-up 31 December 1996. 3,651 houses were transferred to West Lothian
 Council on 1 November 1996. 1,516 houses were transferred to Almond Housing Association on 29 October 1996, and
 66 sheltered houses were transferred to Bield Housing Association on 21 October 1996.
 Communities Scotland . This was an executive agency that replaced Scottish Homes on 1 November 2001. Communities
 Scotland worked on behalf of Ministers to promote social justice and tackle exclusion through the delivery of sustainable
 community regeneration. It was dissolved on 1 April 2008. The Investment arm of Communities Scotland no longer exists and are
 now part of the Scottish Government: Housing and Regeneration. Regulation and Inspection is now with the Scottish Housing
 Regulator.
 Scottish Housing Regulator. This is an executive agency of the Scottish Government which replaced Communities Scotland,
 Regulation and Inspection Division on 1 April 2008. They exercise independently the regulatory powers of Scottish Ministers in the
 Housing (Scotland) Act 2001.

KEY INDICATORS TABLE
 Dwellings allocated by local authorities . This is the number of applicants allocated houses by local authorities, including non-
 local authority stock to which the local authority has allocation rights.
 New lets . This is the number of houses allocated to waiting list applicants and to other applicants such as those housed under
 the National Mobility Scheme or under Part II of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987. Other transfers and exchanges are not included
 in this percentage.
 Lets to homeless . This is the number of houses allocated to applicants under Part II of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987.

STOCK ESTIMATES BY TENURE

 Estimates of the dwelling stock are based on 2000
Methodology for estimates to Decemberthe 1991 Census, updated each year using information provided by local authorities
 on new house building, conversion of property to housing use, and demolitions, together with public authorities’ stock counts and
 Scottish Homes’/Communities Scotland’s data on housing association stock. Transfers of stock from one sector to another must
 also be taken into account, for example sales of public authority dwellings to tenants (owner occupiers). Most of this information
 on stock transfers is also provided directly to the Scottish Executive. However, no regular information is available on transfers
 from the private rented sector into owner occupation, and such changes in tenure have not been taken into account when
 producing the estimates.
 The methodology estimates estimates since 2001
Methodology for used for the from March 2001 was revised for the February 2008 update in order to capture the growth in
 the private rented sector in recent years. It has now been revised further for the November 2008 update to show the breakdown
 of privately owned stock into occupied and vacant. Dwelling stock estimates at March each year are based on the GROS dwelling
 counts. Local authority and housing association stock at March each year are subtracted to give an estimate of the privately
 owned stock. Vacant dwelling stock estimates for March each year are based on GROS vacant dwelling counts. From these local
 authority and housing association vacant stock counts at March each year are subtracted to leave an estimate for the privately
 owned vacant stock including second homes. This is then subtracted from the privately owned stock to give an estimate for the
 privately owned, occupied stock. Scottish Household Survey figures are used to estimate the proportion of privately owned,
 occupied
 property
FINANCIAL KEY INDICATORS
 Housing Tender Price Index. The Housing Tender Price Index, compiled by the Scottish Government: Scottish Procurement
 Directorate: Construction Advice and Policy Division, measures the overall change in contractors’ pricing levels in Scottish public
 sector housing projects. It includes successful tenders for 1-4 storey public sector housing contracts throughout mainland
 Scotland. Using a standard sampling methodology, items to a minimum value of 25% of each trade are selected from Bills of
 Quantities, are compared with a predetermined price base, and are weighted according to the proportionate value of the trade to
 the total Bill. The index figure is derived from the arithmetic mean of each quarter’s sample. Tenders are allocated to the quarter
 in which the tender date falls.
 Any enquiries about the index should be addressed to the Scottish Government: Scottish Procurement Directorate: Construction
 Advice and Policy Division, Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6QQ.

 RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS AND MORTGAGE COMPLETIONS
 Registers of Scotland data. Sale price data come from information supplied to the Registers of Scotland with new applications
 to register the transfer of title in a property sale. Each application identifies the property type, distinguishing residential properties
 from those for commercial properties, land and other types.
 All changes of ownership are recorded, including cash sales. As part of the registration process, the applicant's agent records the
 price of the transaction. Depending on the type of transfer, it is possible for this to be a small nominal sum or below the true
 market value of the property.
 Data on volume and value of transactions published by Registers of Scotland exclude transactions under £20,000 and those over
 £1,000,000 on the grounds that low value transactions are unlikely to represent the full market value, and high value transactions
 are relatively infrequent and liable to skew the estimated average.
 Survey of Mortgage Lenders . The Department for Communities and Local Government (and its former incarnations the
 Department of the Environment, the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, the Department for Transport,
 Local Government and the Regions, and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister) have produced a quarterly house price index
 since 1968 based on data from the Survey of Mortgage Lenders (SML). The survey was conducted in partnership with the Council
 of Mortgage Lenders (CML) and previously involved a variety of mortgage lenders supplying a monthly 5% sample of mortgage
 completions.
 In the past couple of years, many lenders have been supplying 100% samples through electronic data capture. The increased
 sample size (approximately 25,000 cases per month for the UK initially) has allowed the production of a revised monthly index in
 2003.
 There has been no change to the methodology but the data source changed in September 2005. The house price index is now
 based on an enlarged sample of completions data (about 45,000 per month) from about 50 mortgage lenders who supply data
 through the Regulated Mortgage Survey (RMS) of the Council of Mortgage Lenders/BankSearch.
 The change in reporting has been due to requirements by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) that UK mortgage lenders
 compile certain information relating to mortgage completions that the lenders have financed (excluding buy-to-lets). After
 considering the implications of this new development, the Department (now the Department for Communities and Local
 Government) and CML took the view that it would be a major duplication of effort for lenders to supply data to the FSA and, at the
 same time, to continue their voluntary participation in the existing SML.
 There is currently a special arrangement between the FSA, CML and the Department to provide the information for the house
 price index. This is based on statutory reporting required by the FSA that is also supplied voluntarily by lenders to the CML.
 Some of the information supplied by lenders is required by the FSA. As a result, complete information is now available on some
 variables, for example whether the borrower is a first time buyer or a sitting tenant. Consequently a structural change in the data
 is likely to have occurred. Although index weights are used that reflect the pattern of property transactions over the past three
 years, when examining the mix-adjusted prices for August there were differences between the SML and the RMS data. The house
 price index and house prices for August will remain the SML figures reported on 10th October. However to maintain comparability
 across 2005 both the prices and house price indices for the two data sources have been chain linked at August. In effect, this
 means that the average, mix-adjusted house prices from RMS data are adjusted to be on the same basis as the average prices
 from SML data. This adjustment will continue until annual chain-linking is applied for January, 2006. After that, average house
 price

 House Price Index . The House Price Index is the weighted average of prices of a standard collection of dwellings. The index is
 adjusted for changes in the mix of properties. The initial quarterly series based on building society lending was terminated in
 1993, when a series based on a sample of mortgage completions by all types of lender was established. Details of the methods
 by which the 1993-based index was constructed were published in Economic Trends , No. 348, October 1982.
 In 2003, the index was revised to incorporate methodological improvements and a much larger sample from the Survey of
 Mortgage Lenders (see above). The index is now published as a monthly series with 2002 as the base year. Details of the index
 can be found in the house prices area on the Communities and Local Government website (http://www.communities.gov.uk).
Average income . Average income details are for mortgage loan purposes as recorded by the Scottish mortgage lenders.

  Note: Certain time series for local authority figures show substantial year on year variation due to housing stock transfers: these are indicated by double line
  Note: Figures include estimates based on previous data for outstanding returns.
  1. Estimated stock of dwellings has been updated following a methodology review. Estimates prior to 2001 are as at December each year and from 2001 es
  2001 owner occupied proportions exclude vacant dwellings.
  2. Housing association data provided by Scottish Housing Regulator. Stock figures relate to self contained properties.
3. Includes estimates for outstanding returns for the private sector in Highland from 2005 Q2 onwards.
4. Includes estimates for outstanding returns. Figures for Glasgow are based on housing association demolitions provided by Scottish Housing Regulator.
5. Figures for 2005 include units previously classified as medium dependency or wheelchair housing.
6. Subsequent to stock transfers in Glasgow, figures for 2003 include approximately 14,000 medium dependency units which were previously unclassified. T
reclassifying approximately 13,000 units as general needs accommodation.
7. These are combined waiting and transfer list figures.

Note: Estimates up to 2000 are based on the 1991 Census. Estimates from 2001 onwards are based on the 2001 Census, GROS dwelling counts and Scottish
Household Survey (SHS) tenure splits and are not strictly comparable (see notes page).
1. The tenure of privately owned stock is dependant on occupancy. From 2001 the privately owned vacant dwellings are shown separately. The number of vacant
dwellings is not known prior to March 2001 and so these are included within owner occupied and rented privately.
2. Socially rented figures include occupied and vacant dwellings as the tenure of socially rented stock is not dependant on the dwelling being occupied.
3. Includes accommodation tied to employment and others living rent free.
4. Stock transfers took place in Dumfries & Galloway, Glasgow and Scottish Borders in 2003, in Argyll & Bute and Eilean Siar in 2006 and Inverclyde in 2007.
Estimates for 2003 onwards will reflect this change of tenure.

                        Average weekly rent is calculated by dividing the estimated housing revenue from 1 April to 31 March by the estimated housing stock at the mid point of the financial year (30 September) and by 52 (regardless of
                        whether rent is actually collected on a 52-week basis). Figures are estimates for 2009-10 and near-actual for all other years.

           Notes: The relatively small sample sizes in some cases and effects of seasonality mean that quarter on quarter changes should be interpreted with caution. Monetary values shown
           are nominal and not adjusted for inflation.
           1. Source: Land Valuation Information Unit at the University of West of Scotland and Scottish Government (base data provided by Registers of Scotland). This analysis is based on all
           recorded transactions in order to reflect the total activity level for Scotland. Figures may differ from those published by Registers of Scotland as the latter exclude transactions under
           £20,000 and over £1,000,000 (see notes page).

           2. Source: Regulated Mortgage Survey (RMS) of the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML)/BankSearch. Mortgage figures since 1993 have been revised, substantially in some cases,
           due to changes in methodology (see notes page). Due to rounding, the total shown may not be equal to the sum of constituent parts. Figures from 2002 Q2 onwards are based on an
           increased sample size. From September 2005, lenders' data are collected via the Regulated Mortgage Survey.

           3. The percentage of price advanced figures from 2003 onwards are calculated on a case-by case basis and then averaged. Previously the percentages were derived from the overall
           average price and advance.
           4. Quarter 4 2007 and 2007 year figures exclude 144 block transactions related to stock transfer.
