‘Age of aspiration’ to ownership
Aspiration to home ownership will be encouraged by the new Government, says Housing Minister Grant Shapps. Speaking at the RICS headquarters in Westminster, he said:“I will work every day to help people achieve their aspirations to own their home.
“Of course, I am not arguing that everyone should somehow aspire to home ownership. Renting a home can be a positive and flexible choice. And social housing provides a sense of security for millions of families. I am simply saying to those who aspire to own their own home: this Government will support you. The age of aspiration is back.”
