Prindex’s results show that 19% of respondents felt insecure about their tenure rights in 2018 – an equivalent of two million people aged 18 or over, and lower than the average of the first 15 countries surveyed. Sixty nine percent of the sample interviewed felt secure about their properties and the remaining 12% refused or did not know how to answer the question. Seventy nine percent of owners and renters reported the possession of formal documentation and 13% reported no documentation. Unlike in many of the other countries surveyed, there was no difference in perceived tenure insecurity between men and women in the hypothetical case of divorce and very little difference in the case of spousal death.
