Social rent is based on a government formula equating to approximately 50% of local market rent. (Market rent is the average in an area that someone would pay if renting a property from a private landlord).

Affordable rent is the usual rent for newly developed homes, set at up to 80% of the local market rent.

Intermediate housing comprises homes for sale and rent at a cost above social rent but below the market level. This includes shared ownership homes.
