“A house should be a home not an asset”   


A home isn’t necessarily something we own - its a space that helps us feel secure and together with other people - usually family - gives us a sense of security and belonging.

House ownership however converts houses into assets - not always assets that are realized but nevertheless assets - against which people can borrow money or when they sell realize a capital gain.  

Housing is at the core of political thought at the moment and a key issue for voters. With many more people forced into the rental sector we have seen rents rise and homelessness increase.

This is at least in part because houses are often seen as assets - many new landlords have “buy to let” mortgages … in such circumstances there seems no intention to purchase a house as a home.
