More than 750,000 homes were built during their term of office, with final figures to be released in the coming months, but Natalie Elphicke, chief executive at The Housing & Finance Institute (HFI), says that David Cameron and George Osborne's housing legacy is the strongest of any government for a generation.
Elphicke adds: "This strong inheritance gives Theresa May and Phillip Hammond the opportunity to meet the Government's 1m homes by 2020 target."
The conventional wisdom is that Theresa May has inherited a full-blown housing crisis. The public is told that there aren't enough homes being built - and those that are being constructed are unaffordable for the vast majority of Brits.
But commenting on the legacy of the last government, Natalie Elphicke says: "It is true we have some serious housing challenges, but it is also a fact we have made some extraordinary steps forward since David Cameron and George Osborne took control in 2010.
