Getting Your Own Flat

Recommended Posts

In the old days, successful young people aspired to leave the parental nest and spend some years living in complete independence in their own property, before marrying and selling up/buy a house to raise a family.

Is it still possible post 2007 credit crunch/inflated property market/ recession hit Britain to dream of ownership a flat and enjoy your own space. Spend blissful years with no one to argue with at home, make all the decisions and managing to juggle the income from a job to meet household bills plus extra for a rainy day

I'm not sure what Golden Age you refer to? In London there has always been a tradition of shared flats, bed-sits etc. Look back at the sitcoms on TV etc. Some were rich enough to pay a deposit and buy their own property but not straight-away.

When was that?

Young people would move out, into a bedsit of a quality that would get the landlord prosecuted today. Go back a bit further and the bedsit would be shared.
