11% Of Uk Households Own A 2Nd Home

Recommended Posts

11% of households own a mortgage-free second property? Blimey.

Or do 11% of households hold a mortgage secured on a second property and as such don't really own anything at all?

Doesn't say which in the materials from what I can tell.

They must have been lured into it somehow,

Why have hpcers suggesting you're a victim buying one house, when they can claim you're a victim of the system/media/marketing in buying 2 houses.

11%!! FFS.

As I have said in another thread. High inequality is giving some individuals income that is vastly surplus to their needs. So what do people think they do with that surplus but buy up assets.....one of which is housing.

Not just 2nd homes but multiple homes. It would be nice to see how many have 3,4 or a dozen homes and what the situation looks like now as this poll is 2010-2012.

Has Call-me-Dave bought any more recently, or is he waiting to go on a B. Liar style spending spree when he no longer has to pretend to be everybody's friend?

So how many properties do you own?

“I own a house in North Kensington which you’ve been to and my house in the constituency in Oxfordshire and that is, as far as I know, all I have.”

A house in Cornwall?

“No, that is, Samantha used to have a timeshare in South Devon but she doesn’t any more.” And there isn’t a fourth?

“I don’t think so – not that I can think of.”

Please don’t say, “Not that I can think of.” “You might be… Samantha owns a field in Scunthorpe but she doesn’t own a house…”

The rest of the interview was punctuated with Cameron’s nagging anxiety about how this exchange was going to make him sound: “I was wondering how that will come across as a soundbite”; “

‘Not that I can think of’ makes me sound… I am really worried about that…”; “I am still thinking about this house thing”; and his parting shot was:

“Do not make me sound like a prat for not knowing how many houses I’ve got.”

Actually Cameron has never gone down the "Call me Dave" route literally - he is always David.. Perhaps you think he has metaphorically in a chummy sense.

Didn't this originally come Tony "call me Tony" Blair, who followed in the footsteps if Tony "call me Tony" Benn?
