    ?The Housing crisis

    Why does so much focus have to still be aimed at “owning a home/property”? In much of Europe professional & other people are happy to rent. This is because the rental property either has rent capped or is reasonable. The homes are good quality & people like living there. Of course there will still be people wanting to own, that’s fine, except when much of it is to make money from the property ? All of this divide & rule, “social rented, private rented” & owner occupiers”. We then find that people look down on those renting, in either sector. The other issue with pushing home ownership, is the nature of work has changed, so if work drys up & or is short term, you’re stuck. You can’t now get any money towards the mortgage or interest. Why is no one talking about this?
