The research figures indicate that a seismic shift in attitudes to renting is taking place. Whereas nearly all of the previous generation of Brits polled (those now aged between 55 and 75) saw owning their own property as the ‘ultimate goal’ (93%), only a third (33%) of people under 35 now feel the same way. In line with this, property management maryland half of all renters (43%) no longer see bricks and mortar as a sign of success, and almost three quarters (70%) say the notion that it’s in some way shameful to never own a property is completely out of date. This more relaxed approach to owning property might be considered refreshing but it comes with a number of hidden perils including little leeway for renters should they not be able to pay for their accommodation and a lack of renters taking out income protection insurance.
