Adam Sampson, chief executive at Shelter said, “Despite falling house prices, with lenders still increasing their mortgage rates, it is contributing to making an already desperate situation worse. It means there is a generation of young people and young families locked out of the housing market, without a hope of ever sharing in the asset wealth of the generation before. Buying a home has now become a distant, unaffordable dream for millions of first-time buyers.”
