NEARLY QUARTER OF CHILDREN SHARING BEDROOM

NEARLY QUARTER OF CHILDREN SHARING BEDROOM (News (General))

by administrator @, Friday, February 03, 2012, 10:06

Nearly a quarter (24%) of children living in British homes are forced to share a bedroom, rising to 35% for those living in London, according to new research.

According to the findings from FindaProperty.com, 29 % parents think their current home is too small to accommodate the size of their family, rising to 40% for younger families where parents are aged 18 to 34.

The study also suggests that just under a million people in the UK are expecting to become a parent within the next few months, and roughly 14% of these are still living in homes that are too small to accommodate their new arrival.

Samantha Baden, property analyst at FindaProperty.com, said: "With the average cost of a three bedroom home in the UK now in the region of £193,000, affordability remains a key issue for families.

"Very few families can afford to buy or rent a property that meets their exact size and location requirements, and as a result, they are often forced to compromise on one or the other.

"These findings reinforce the importance of investing quality time in the search for a home that meets the needs of the family both now and in the future."
