According to findaproperty.com Fareham has the third highest amount of homeowners of any area in the country... odd that, it's not the cheapest part of the country, so I'm not sure what that statistic means... London is mostly rented I would guess as it's outrageously expensive.
Seems urban areas have the lowest percentage of owner occupiers, but I wouldn't have said Fareham was particularly rural. No mention of Folkestone, hopefully the full list will be made available at some point.
