The purpose of this paper is to define mixed tenure estates as comprising any mix of social housing tenants with: private renting tenants (who therefore have private landlords); shared owners (i.e. those who buy a part share in their home, the remaining share being typically retained by social landlord); owner occupiers (bought outright, or those paying a mortgage on the whole value of the property). – A literature review and interviews with Registered Social Landlord (RSL) personnel are used to inform the discussion contained in this paper. The term “Asset Management” is used to describe the management of estates, including maintenance, repair and other physical investment. The research methodology is based on a case study of a social housing provider, supported by semi-structured interviews. – The main conclusion of this paper is that, along with a number of other issues, inter-working at the case study RSL needs to be improved if mixed tenure estates are to succeed. – Little work has been undertaken in this specific area, and the research should be of interest to a wide audience including social housing developers, urban researchers and central and local government.
