Home ownership is at its most affordable since 2007, the government has claimed.
Responding to research from Shelter indicating many families are cutting back on food to cover housing costs, Housing Minister Brandon Lewis said repossessions were currently at their lowest since 2007 and down almost a third since last year.
He added that record low interest rates had made owning a home more affordable, while adding that "private rent levels are falling in real times".
On top of this, we've got Britain building, with nearly half a million new homes delivered since 2010, including nearly 200,000 affordable homes, and almost 40,000 new home owners have been created through the Help to Buy schemes.
