The changing world of ownership versus rental

For BBC’s Panorama, Mariella Frostrup looked into the changing world of property ownership versus home rental.

She found that 10 years ago, according to the English Housing Survey, 59% of 25 to 34 year-olds owned their own home in England – now it’s 36%. What are they doing instead? They’re renting from private landlords – 21% were doing that 10 years ago, now it’s 48%.

It’s obvious from this that for many people in the UK, rental is where it’s going to be at for many years to come.
