Moving home is often associated with life events such as forming or dissolving a partnership which may alter housing preferences and needs. Moreover, the neighbourhood as well as the unsuitability of the dwelling can be a source of dissatisfaction with the current location. In the context of a recession and constrained mortgage markets, the ability of households to realise desired changes in location may be reduced. This article uses data from Waves 1 and 2 of Understanding Society to investigate moving desires and expectations, as well as actual moves and their reasons.
