This chapter determines that a percentage of households in developed nations are precariously housed, and that their housing market transitions are marked by frequent moves, unaffordable housing, and the risk of eviction. It introduces the concept of economic restructuring, which can mean that the groups which previously occupied a stable position within the housing market can suddenly find themselves vulnerable. The chapter then presents an analysis of the labour market outcomes from Lonsdale and Longbridge, which shows that these events fully reframe the position of a household within the market and could well generate the need to relocate. Economic restructuring also influences the housing transitions of immigrant groups, because economic circumstances fundamentally shape immigration rates upon arrival. The chapter concludes that some immigrant communities arrive into migrant receiving countries at risk and that their disadvantages are then compounded within the housing market.
