Looking to Rent
It may be that this is a good time to rent - or is it a good time to buy? At least with renting you can have some degree of flexibility - unitil your landlord turfs you out!
The difficulty is weighing up the pro's and cons of renting and buying. Whilst renting you have no real ties, but you are paying off your landlord's mortgage - but when you own, you pay for an expensive mortgage of your own - but at least when you've paid it all off, you won't need to pay rent or for a mortgage after then.
In our Renting Guide we have more information on various aspects of renting - including how you can still invest in property whilst renting!
