    [eng] Portrait of a Tenant - Contrary to owners, tenants are mostly urban, young and from less privileged backgrounds. Their homes are often old, rather uncomfortable and collective. They move out more often than home owners and, three times out of ten, the reason is to become owners themselves. In the process from renting to owning one's homes, one's age but also one's income are essential factors. In general, high- income households are more likely to move. Thus, HLM (low-rent housing) tenants are less mobile. [spa] Retrato del inquilino tipo - Contrariamente a los propietarios, los inquilinos viven en medio urbano sobre todo, son jóvenes y provienen de capas sociales menos favorecidas. En la mayoría de los casos su habitat es antiguo, poco confortable y de tipo colectivo. Los inquilinos dejan su vivienda mucho más frecuentemente que los propietarios. Cuando se mudan, es con el objeto de transformarse, a su vez, en propietarios, en una proporción correspondiente a tres de cada diez. En esta evolución del estatuto de inquilino al de propietario, la edad y los ingresos tienen una influencia primordial. Las mudanzas son generalmente más frecuentes en los hogares que cuentan con ingresos elevados. De este modo, los inquilinos de las viviendas de tipo HLM son los que tienen menor movilidad. [fre] A l'opposé des propriétaires, les locataires sont surtout urbains, jeunes et de milieu moins favorisé. Leur habitat est souvent ancien, peu confortable et collectif. Ils le quittent d'ailleurs plus fréquemment que les propriétaires occupants et c'est alors trois fois sur dix pour devenir propriétaires eux-mêmes. Dans ce passage de la location à l'accession, l'âge mais aussi le revenu ont une influence essentielle. Plus généralement, les déménagements sont plus fréquents chez les ménages aux revenus élevés, alors que les locataires des HLM sont les moins mobiles.
