We buy any house

If you want to find a company that specialises in saying ‘we buy any house‘, you may be interested to hear that the north of England faces a property market crisis.

That is according to Helen Carter in the Guardian, who revealed house prices are rising, but mortgages remain virtually unaffordable for first-time buyers.

Ms Carter added that housing association tenants are struggling too, as they face a squeeze in benefits that will make it difficult to pay their rent.

She spoke to Derek Long, head of the north at the National Housing Federation, who said: “There’s a perfect storm coming together and its going to get worse in the north. The policies that work for ‘planet growth’ are not necessarily going to work for ‘planet X’.”
