The HomeOwners Alliance’s Martin Shankleman was featured on last night’s edition of the Tonight programme entitled Generation Rent. The programme highlighted the plight facing aspiring first time buyers who are priced out of getting onto the housing ladder. He said:
“There has been a profound change in the housing market, which has robbed a generation of people of the realistic prospect of being able to get on to the housing ladder and it’s incredibly unfair.
Home owners are much happier about their quality of their life, than people who live in the rented sector. The difference is really stark. And if you think about it there are all sorts of obvious reasons why that is the case. They are more secure, home owners have put roots down and that actually makes for a better standard of living so improves the overall well-being of the country.”
