Tenants better off renting
Well how rapidly things change!
Now it appears that increasingly commentators are putting forward the view that people are better off renting. Because house prices are not rocketing skywards the reality of real costs of ownership are apparent. The reality is if you rent the landlord:
* pays for the insurance
* pays for repairs
* pays for the mortgage including the hefty upfront mortgage set up fees
* takes the risk of falling house prices
Maybe some of the first time buyer wingers ought to consider these factors next time they are dragged out by the media to make their ill informed pronouncements.
