Housing crisis shows no sign of easing
London to see sharpest price increase
“With house prices rising rapidly every year, it’s no wonder that so many people are losing hope of ever being able to get a foot on the housing ladder.
“Sadly, current government schemes, like so-called “affordable” starter homes costing up to £450k, will continue to leave people on typical incomes stuck in expensive and unstable private renting, and unable to save for the future.
“There’s been a lot of talk about how to solve the housing shortage, but what this country desperately needs is a commitment by the Government to invest in building genuine homes that people on ordinary incomes can actually afford to rent or buy.”
