A huge cry for help in a market that is reported as on the up
The Government has been accused of not doing enough to encourage potential homeowners to own a property. The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) has reported that more than one in four adults no longer have any desire to own their own home in some cities in the UK. Thirty per cent and 27.7 per cent of residents in Cardiff and Manchester respectively said they had no designs on owning a home, while a quarter of respondents in Belfast and Brighton gave the same response. It was a similar case in Leeds and Norwich, where 24 per cent of those questioned said they had no plans to buy.
