Glasgow has the second lowest proportion of owner-occupied housing (approximately 47%, compared to Dundee with 46%) while Edinburgh and Aberdeen have the highest rates.  However, all of Scotland's four major cities have lower rates of owner-occupied housing than Scotland as a whole.  Edinburgh has the highest level of privately-rented properties.

In relation to Glasgow, it should be noted that in 2003, all council owned socially-rented stock was transferred to the Glasgow Housing Association - a not-for-profit organisation which now acts as the landlord.
