Article preview: The traditional life journey of home ownership, starting a family, watching the kids fly the nest, and then retirement, has been somewhat disrupted in recent years. It used to be the case that an Englishman’s home was his castle. As well as being a nation of shopkeepers, we were a nation of homeowners. Today, more in keeping with our continental neighbours, we’re fast becoming a nation of renters. This shift from home ownership to renting, albeit still in its infancy, could have significant implications for our long-term financial planning.
