About renternomads

Despite an Oxbridge degree and a background in writing, event management and business journalism, I've rented in the private sector for 12 years. Shame on me: what a betrayal of my class background! So the rhetoric goes... However, in the UK, now, the average age of a first time buyer without parental support has risen to 37. Moreover, new kinds of renters are entering the market: the housing market is so illiquid that sellers are increasingly talking of "going into rented" while they seek to buy another property. Whether you're a long-term renter or a "temporary nomad", I hope you'll find it useful and interesting as I blog about the domestic solutions which you can take with you, so you don't "have" to buy again and again.
