The Mayor will make renting more affordable through the:
- London Affordable Rent for people on low incomes
- London Living Rent for people on average incomes to help them save money for a deposit on their first home
There will also be more shared ownership homes to help Londoners who want to buy but can’t afford market rates.
The Mayor's aim is for half of all new homes in London to be genuinely affordable. He is working with partners to get more affordable homes built on empty public land.
He’s also securing funding to help rehome people leaving hostels and refuges through his ‘No Nights Sleeping Rough’ programme.
