UK Housing - A Nation of Permanent Renters?

Geoff Riley

14th February 2016

Such is the affordability crisis in owner-occupied housing in Britain that there is a significant risk that millions of people will never be able to buy their own property. A new report from the Resolution Foundation found that those aged 65 and over now account for almost one-third of all homeowners, up from less than one-quarter in 1998. Low effective demand for rented housing is also a major problem in many parts of the country. Click here for a link to the Resolution Foundation research on the UK housing market
