  2. Nationwide today talking about 5.5x lending for first-time mortgages: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2021/apr/20/nationwide-first-time-buyers-building-society-loans-earnings
  3. Sad thing is a that a lot of young people are so desperate to get on the ‘ladder’ that they will take these schemes without thinking through the consequences. The pressure from all sides is really immense.
  4. This is also social housing: https://www.architecture.com/knowledge-and-resources/knowledge-landing-page/goldsmith-street-sets-new-standard-for-social-housing But that doesn't fit your narrative does it?
  5. Were you thinking about https://builtplace.com/
  6. Comments on that article look like they could be from this site. The 95% mortgage has not gone down well with that crowd

  13. He forgot to mention the effect on people that do not own a home. That is a huge oversight in that article.
  14. Just so that this can be put to rest, this is a chart I made for median prices for terraced properties in Chiswick made from the Land Registry Prices Paid Data, other than the 'Boris Bounce' there was a dip after 2016. Lets see if that can be sustained....
