Prindex’s results show that 18% of respondents felt insecure about their tenure rights in 2018 – an equivalent of four million people aged 18 or over, and lower than the average of the first 15 countries. Sixty seven percent of the sample interviewed felt secure about their properties and the remaining 15% refused or did not know how to answer the question. Eighty five percent of owners and renters reported the possession of formal documentation and 13% reported no documentation. There was little difference in perceived tenure insecurity between men and women in the hypothetical case of divorce but a 14-percentage-point difference in the case of spousal death.
