The implications of loss of a partner for older private renters: positioning paper


This positioning paper explores the implications of loss of a partner for private renters aged 50 years and over (aged 50+). The scope of the analysis includes singles who turned 50 having previously lost a partner through death, separation or divorce and those who lose a partner after turning 50. The issue is significant not only because of the impact on the individual who has lost their partner, but also because of demographic trends such as the ageing of the population and rising marital separation rates which will find an increasing proportion of the population facing this situation.
