    I'm 3 years younger than you on half the money (after reductions), I live in a place with my brother but would go back home any day so I had less cash going out!

    That joke will never get old. Like all the best jokes, you laugh but feel sick with rage at the same time.

    I had almost recovered, but you've just brought the terrible memories floating back to the surface!

    I've got 2 more years on mine - not gonig to pay it all off though. No way, going to leave 10 and take another few years to pay it off at 0.20 a month - just to annoy the bank as they screwed this country into the ground. It will cost THEM more money in the long run. Bleeding bankers.

    I'll be renting for a hell of a long time - Cheapest 1bed flats here are averaging 150k with a decent 2bed being over 200k.
    Unless I can stump up about 60k i'm screwed!

    I didnt buy a place until I was 25 and even then it was a 'shared ownership' two-bed semi bungalow and I only owned a third of it. Prices may have been cheaper then but it took until I was 27 and with a partner before we could afford to buy anywhere. Interest rates were up at about 15% so the monthly outgoing was enormous.
    It's the ones renting I feel sorriest for - at least the ones still at home can really save up - but rent is just money down the drain...
