pipllman posted a topic in House prices and the economyIf you want to provide input to the House of Lords enquiry about the UK housing market, you can: written submissions are invited "The Committee is to investigate the economics of the UK housing market. Buying a house is becoming increasingly unaffordable for first time buyers. The cost of private rented accommodation is rising and there is a lack of affordable social housing. This Inquiry will consider the economic factors that influence the demand for and availability of reasonably priced housing to buy and to rent. This is a complex topic and the inquiry will particularly focus on the effectiveness of government economic measures designed to improve housing affordability." http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/lords-select/economic-affairs-committee/inquiries/parliament-2015/economics-of-the-uk-housing-market/
